    Amazing place so authentic . However we went when it was very overcrowded which made it harder to stop and see the buildings at your leisure.

    The Colleoni Chapel looks elegant against the background of the modest Romanesque exterior of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. As a matter of fact, it was erected on the site of the northwestern apse of this church destroyed by Bartolomeo Colleoni's soldiers. Anyone who has been to Venice has seen Verrocchio's masterpiece - the equestrian monument of this condottiero, i.e. the leader of the mercenaries in the Piazza Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Colleoni was considered the savior of Venice in the battle with the army of Florence and Milan at Molinella, but he preferred to build a chapel for himself and his prematurely deceased daughter in Bergamo. At that time it belonged to the Republic of Venice. He spent a huge sum of 50 thousand ducats in gold on the construction of the chapel at that time. It is forbidden to take photos inside. But in front of the entrance you will see the coat of arms of the Colleoni family. Yes, yes, you were not mistaken! There are three testicles on the coat of arms. It is believed that the family owes its symbol to one of its founders, Gisalberto Colleoni, with a characteristic physiological feature, the third testicle, which could be the result of orchitis. By the way, the surname itself can be written as Coglioni, that is, "testicles".

    Initially we confused the Duomo with the stunning Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica. The Duomo is rather overshadowed by the adjacent Basilica but is certainly worthy of a visit. Once inside it is quite beautiful and free to enter.

    The walls are very impressive and over a large area, some great views from multiple points, well worth a few ours of wandering, viewing and resting.
    Many levels, so have your walking shoes on.

    This 12-th century bell tower would give you an amazing 360 degrees view around old Bergamo and the surrounding hills. The price is just 5.00 euro so don't miss it. You will definatelly stay long enough to admire the view of the churches, monasteries, the piazza below and the hills around Bergamo and while you are there the bells will ring so expect the ringing and don't be startle. There are plates with the buildings that you see which shows the year that they were built and a brief history.

    CItta Alta! Cozy, rustic and full of nice restaurants, and bars. Walk along Mura, and the sceneries below. Take the Funicolare up to Citta Alta, or to San VIgilio. Spectacular wievs at the last one. Visit the churches or museums. Learn about the life through the ages in Citta Alta. Done it, and will do it again.

    A charming place like the whole old town of Bergamo. One of the best views of Bergamo you can see from this old 14th century fortification located on the hill of St. Euphemia. Inside there is a very interesting museum dedicated to Bergamo. Outside, you can have a wonderful walk in the garden, there is an exhibition of weapons used during World War I and II here. You can see cannons and a tank. There is a stone path. In addition, there is a museum, church and park in this place. There are benches and a fountain with drinking water. I highly recommend a walk, the views are really amazing.
