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.

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!
