The Road explores the area of the Province of Brescia. Starting from the main town it winds its way south-east, returning to Brescia by way of the wine-producing area to the north-east. From the Castle of Brescia on the Cidneo hill, on whose northern slope the vineyard of Pusterla is cultivated (the largest vineyard in an urban area), one proceeds
southward towards Flero, to then continue towards Capriano del Colle, Poncarale, Montirone, Castenedolo, Ciliverghe, Rezzato, Botticino and return to Brescia passing through the suburb ofSant’Eufemia.
The Wine Road of the Colli dei Longobardi offers the tourist a rich, multi-faceted itinerary that embraces wine-producing and craft activities, art and landscape, history and cultural traditions. Some of the museums worth visiting are:

– the Museum of Santa Giulia (the most important museum in the city of Brescia)
– the Marble Museum at Botticino (with interesting materials on the famous Botticino marble quarries)
– the Wine and Women’s Museum (Museo del Cavatappi e della Donna) at Ciliverghe di Mazzano.
