Time of year
In the Upper city there are a lot of towers. This one is in the modern Bergamo, and serves today as museum, where you can learn the history of Bergamo on six floors.
Very nice tower and the photo I post after writing here tell everything with the beautiful old town behind the scenes. Closed when I was coming walking down here from Citta Alta. For me to look outside thing can often be more then enough and this time was no difference.…
Facing the front of the tower, you can see a old town which rises on a hill. It is a beautiful contrast between modern and historical part of the city. You can not miss this place!
We went in here as part of an open free few days by the bank (of which the tower is part of their building?) Each floor has history from the building of the tower and at the top there is a good 360 degree view from all 4 sides. Well worth the climb of the steps!
the Torre dei Caduti is a War Memorial. there are some nice views from the walking track on it, but the Memorial itself is closed and we did not get any information when it would be open for visitors.
