If you happen to stay in Milan definitely take a day to spend it in Bergamo. It's less than an hour away by train(from Milano Centrale). Pictures can't do justice to this beautiful little picturesque city. If you want to have lunch there definitely try eat in one of the trattorias there!

To put it short - just wander through the streets full of history, enjoy the big and small squares, step into the old churches, climb one of the towers for the views, grab a slize of pizza, follow the city walls, ride a funicular. In the evening sit at one of the restaurants, try some local delicacies and have a... More

A well conserved medieval city with roots to the roman period. Narrow streets with a very good variety of shops, bars and restaurant.

Small, medieval city with many little streets to wander around and easy to navigate. Lovely views out over the new city and beyond. A wide variety of restaurants serving local food at reasonable prices or just buy a slice of pizza for a snack!

As you wall around the winding streets of this old, amazing city, take it all in! The shop owners standing in their doorways welcoming tourists, the architecture everywhere that is a portal into the past, and the dogs being walked all around you. There is gelato on every corner, park benches and resting places abound, and you can easily spend... More

Bergamo is a gem, for history buffs, art historians, and for couples looking for a nice evening out. Visit one of the plazas and have a late dinner, watching the locals parade with their dogs. Of course,the food is excellent. Life does not get any better.

This was an unintended visit - we were visiting a friend who lives here and knew where to take us - it's a superb place to visit - go to lunch in one of the restaurants and request a window seat so you can take in the magnificent views from a geographical point where the mountains end and the plain...

A gorgeous old town to walk around and the views from it to the different landscapes of Italy are breathtaking - you can see the beginning Alps on one side and vast plains on the other.
