Beautiful square with many things to see. People can relax on one the few terraces or visit the historical library.
The place located in the middle of upper city - very nice place to have a seat and enjoy cold drink during summer. Surrounded by old buildings - great atmosphere
Beautiful place to be even when the cloud cover is low and it is raining. Plenty of old stuff to read about and see. Plenty of restaurants too.
Citta Vecchia , the "old town" and it's center the Piazza Vecchia are worth a visit. Once Bergamo was part of the Venice empire which is shown at the top of the archway - the white lion.

The Piazza Vecchia, at the heart of Citta Alta is simply lovely.

It is small but charming and near to some great little shops and restaurants. It's definitely a place to put on your... More
Wonderful place (been here since my childhood), you can climb the tower, run happily with kids and enjoy great food, coffees and atmosphere. Best architecture and the Duomo church incredible. A must see!
Its a nice small old town located on the hill,with slow life.The square is mainly used for events.When we had been here,there was world architect conference and they were dismantling everything.There were several restaurants near the square.The best part we enjoyed about this square was the fountain and the colorful flowers along the steps.
When we stayed there (end of September), there was an exhibition to encourage authorities to decorate their 'piazzas' with flowers, bees, trees, grass, etcetera. The piazza vecchia was beautifully decorated, lots of people hanging around and drinking something or just sitting there because it was so nice.
The Citta Alta in Bergamo is definitely a worthwhile trip. the Piazza Vecchia was really special as we caught part of a festival which decorated the entire piazza! Good bars and restaurants in the Piazzo or in either direction!
A lovely old square located right at the top of City Alta (old city) in Bergamo.It's a lovely place to relax & watch the world go by,sipping a nice glass of wine.
