After visiting Milan and just before we left off home via the Bergamo airport, we decided to visit La Citta Alta of Bergamo. Lovery small streets, beautiful squares and churches. Great views on the Alps as well. A place to go for all travelers!
I went with my friend for a girlie break, but intend to return for a romantic break. The snowy alps could be seen from the tower.
The citta alta is great! Very nice to see the medieval architectures! Beautiful churchs, museums and very good coffee! I loved the stone streets !
