At the medieval Cita Alta surrounded by amazing historical buildings is located this square. Take your time to relax, drink your coffee or aperitivo before visiting the rest of the marvelous old city of Bergamo.

A beautiful place to visit and to soak up the sunshine. Quite buzzy. I would not recommend the cafes or restaurants unless you wanna serious meal or look very fashionable!!! Style over substance.
