The old town of Bergamo is a great place to find romance, good views and nice walkabouts. There are small and bigger beautiful buildings, great architecture and so beautiful nature. Great for uphill running or cycling! Not very friendly for those who are in a wheelchair. Good shopping and a nice Sunday market with handcrafted things such as soaps, food,... More

Well worth a visit as there is so much to see. Not too busy in July - little shops selling food and clothing. Steeped in history. Perfect for the photographer!

If you find yourself in Bergamo do yourselfs a favour and do not stay at the city center, which is pretty nice as well, but go up at Citta Alta. I've visited Northern Italy for more than 25 years now and I cant forgive myself for not discovering this little pearl earlier. Very pretty, very picturesque, beautifull view, nice people,... More

Best part of Bergamo. Charming, nice things to see when you wander around and also quite nice restaurants to have lunches and dinners. Lots of small boutiques as well. Many delicious looking delis catches my eye. It seemed to me - I might be wrong - that this old town "lives" and is also a home of a modern men.... More

Very nice walled city with plenty of piazzas, shops, restaurants, tourist sights, street entertainment, and nice views. No one should visit Bergamo without going there. For good exercise, take the stairs up! We did it 3 times in two days!! If you take the funicular up, be sure to use your ticket again within 75 minutes to take the other... More

Has to be seen. According to Le Corbusier , Piazza Vecchia is the perfect piazza. He might well be right.

We loved the scenery. It is very medieval and romantic. Amazing views over the lower city below. Not a big place and you can easily explore it 9n foot within a couple of hours

This has to be the main reason for visiting Bergamo. This is the old city, where all the history is. Take the funiculare up the very steep hill, or walk, if, unlike me, you are very fit! There you will find the Duomo, the Basilica, the tower, ilovley cobbled streets with some very nice shops. It's all very magical. You... More
