Bergamo » Information
Nestled in the foothills of the Italian Alps, Bergamo is a unique surprise just about 50 km northeast of Milano. This eastern Lombard city, located between Milan and Venice, has a striking position overlooking the southern plains and offers breathtaking views. Structured in two levels, the lower town is modern and dynamic, whilst the ancient hilltop upper town boasts a stunning historic center full of tiny medieval cobbled streets, monuments and works of art. Bergamo's Citta Alta - the ancient historical town of Bergamo, lies on top of a hill within a ring of defensive Venetian walls rebuilt several times during the centuries and abundant in spectacular examples of medieval architecture like the Castello di San Vigilio, the Piazza Duomo, the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Plazzo della Ragione, the Piazza Vecchia and many other architectural gems. A trip through Bergamo gives an access to some of the most expansive collections of classical Italian painting in Italy too. There is also a thriving modern section of Bergamo with fine dining opportunities and high class shopping. Rent a motorcycle or scooter in Bergamo and explore one of Italy's hidden gems.
