    Lovely old square in the middle of La Citta Alta
    My hotel was located just off this main square in "La Citta Alta" of Bergamo so I spent quite some time here, using it as a base for sightseeing. There are numerous bars, restaurants, ice cream parlours with outdoor seating in the square itself and, just off, there are many wonderful old buildings to visit. The central fountain is currently under construction which is a bit of a pity - the covered construction area over it it a little bit of an eyesore but never mind. Oh, and there are also public toilets on the square - 90c per visit!

    Central Square in the Historic Center
    it is the central square in the Città Alta (old town) of Bergamo. The surrounding architecture is beautiful. Especially the Palazzo Nuovo and the Palazzo della Ragione. Nearby is the big Cathedral, the Duomo. Arround the Square, you find some nice cafes and restaurants.

    Not big but quaint
    Smaller than I expected but still has charm. You can sense the history here and try to image it centuries ago. Now the piazza has a few restaurants around the sides and a flock of very aggressive (or brave) pigeons which have clearly not suffered from a lack of food!! We had a nice drink and just sat and took in the atmosphere and surrounding. Nice spot to chill

This place really have a spirit of the Citta Alta. True Italian experience in old city of Bergamo. Anyone visiting Bergamo must taste real gelato and drink (at least one) a glass of wine at one of the ristorante at Piazza Vecchio

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!

This square is stunning as the whole city. But it concentrates itself the whole beauty you can face while wandering there.

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).

Situated right in the center of the magnificent old part of the city of Bergamo (Citta Alta), Piazza Vechia is a beautifull piece of Midle Age architecture.
Untouched by modernism, Piazza Vechia is one of the most beautifull area I ever seen.

The square is beyond charming and represents many architectural eras for Citta Alta. seemingly a great meeting point for tourists to sit at a cafe for a drink or just admire the beauty of the surroundings. The fountain, a central feature is a gift from the Doge Contarini...they were rejects from his under construction nearby estate, but lovely leftovers indeed just maybe not the generosity he implied at the time. beyond charming.

You have to visit once you’re to Bergamo. It’s a very historic place to be and to enjoy the beautiful view into the energetic landscape where you can discover a lot. Streets are clean, well maintained and the old fassade most of the time amazing considering the age and the time when they were build
