Beautiful Piazza!
Sep 2020 • Couples
When you get off the funicular and have never visited here before, you are amazed when you walk out of the station. Then you wander through the narrow streets which are filled with bars, boutiques and restaurants, then you fall upon this amazing piazza which is just filled with history.
There are restaurants and bars with outdoor seating which surround a lovely water fountain.
The whole place is lovely!

An atmospheric place
Oct 2019
Piazza Vecchia is the main and the most beautiful square in Bergamo, in the heart of the Citta Alta. In the past, it was the center of Bergamo's political power, and today it is a popular meeting place. The square was built in the Renaissance style in 15th century, and in its center is the Contarini Fountain from 1780. Next to it is, among others, Palazzo Nuovo, currently the Angelo Mai Library, one of the most important historical libraries in Italy. The Palazzo della Ragione from the end of 1100 and the city tower called Il Campanone also overlook the square. The square is always full of tourists visiting Citta Alta. An absolutely wonderful place during the day, at night, in summer and in winter. A really wonderful square, a must see for anyone coming to Bergamo.

Bergamo is well worth a visit, easily reached by train, but thoroughly recommend a long weekend for the delights and walks in this area of the old town City Alto.

Heart of Bergamo
Oct 2019
Full of historic buildings and usually something going on when you visit here! Plenty of food and drink available too - either sitting inside or out of the square itself. Access to the bell tower and museum is via one end of the square too

A surprise place!
Dec 2019 • Couples
The Piazza Vecchia is located almost at the center of the Citta Alta.
Few good restaurants around and during few months of the year they change the entire piazza with different flowers or attractions too.

Another nice place in Bergamo. Who visits this italian city must go to this place, as it's one of the best and most touristic (and instagramable).

The central point of the old town (Citta Alta), surrounded by architectural jewels and history - an authentic Italian Piazza.
