Guided Walking Tour of Bergamo
A nice place to visit, if you are staying in Milan, is Bergamo. It is easily accessible by a 50-minute train and can be visited in one day. When you arrive in Bergamo, you will meet your guide at the funicular, the cable car station. The tour will focus on the upper city, which is where the medieval city center is located. Once you arrive you will visit Piazza Vecchia, the main square of Bergamo and the Campanone, the bell tower, which is also a panoramic point of the city. Afterwards you will visit the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, from the Romanesque period, and decorated with the extravagance of the Baroque style. Other main attractions of your tour in Bergamo are the Antico Lavatoio and the Cittadella Viscontea. And best of all, Gelato! You will stop at the ancient “Gelateria”, where the favorite flavor of the Italians was invented, Stracciatella, milk-based ice cream with chocolate chips.
