First of all, as a non-italian speaker, I didn't know that the platform of Brescia-Iseo-Edolo line actually locates at another corner of Brescia Train Station. I missed the 7:07am train because I went to the wrong platform for normal trains. After the hassle of making enquiry thinking that the train was cancelled, the Trenord staff couldn't tell me exactly where... More

A missed junction on the route north brought us to this gem in the hills. The engravings are well worth the diversion

The setting, views, maps and friendly entrance staff made this a superb day out. The rock art is well worth travelling the globe to see!

First heard about these drawings due to the ancient astronaut theory. These drawings are amazing! In a nice area, could be a family of couples trip, not too far from Milan Malpensa airport (an hour???).

The park of the rock carvings is very well preserved ed also very nice organised. There you can learn a lot about history, specially if you have an expert guide like we did have.

True, not all engravings are easily visible, but some really nice ones are. What I liked about the place is that you see the engraved rocks at exactly where those early homo sapiens did it - not in a museum.

Some of these animal pictures are truly artistic as can be seen from my photos. These depictions of life 8,000 years ago have helped archaeologists to interpret more traditional materials from digs. We plan our... More

There seem to be several rock art sites. We went to the one that is walking distance from Capo di Ponte station and spent a very pleasant couple of hours exploring the site and finding the artwork and enjoying the scenery. There were a lot of school parties there looking at some of the most significant pieces. There is a... More
