“Perfect & classic Italian getway”
Reviewed August 29, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

My family stayed in the green apartment which had all the conveniences you would expect, it was comfortable, clean and spacious for the three of us.
Christiana, our host, was very welcoming and gave us plenty of information on good days out and local restaurant recommendations.
The apartment has cooking facilities with a large fridge, so with a local bakery, grocers and supermarket a short walk away, we were able to stock up on breakfast, picnic and lunch items.
The location was perfect for us, the property is at the bottom of the hill from the old town. We got adept at walking this daily but there are regular buses that run right outside the house to the old town and the new town where you find the rail station.
The house itself is opposite a church which treated us to some lovely bell ringing - I felt the Italian experience looking out the windows over the distant mountains and listening to them.
Christiana offers a shuttle service from the airport at an extra charge which we took up to save us carrying bags on the local bus - but that would have been do-able - we saw the N01 bus passing frequently to the old town during our visit.
The transport in the city is good - we bought 72hr bus tickets which covered the tourist veniculars as well, I think the price was around 20euro for the three of us.
We squeezed in a day to Milan by catching the N07 bus outside the house to the rail station and caught a return to the city for 23Euros for the three of us. I would recommend buying tickets in advance of visiting the Duomo Catherdral if you go, the queues run into the hundreds and we were given a ticket to queue for the ticket desk. We gave up in the end and walked around the square and looked in the designer shop windows.
Another day out was to Lake Iseo which again can be simply done with the bus to the train station and opposite this is the bus station where you can buy the ticket to Sarnico which is a lovely town on the shores of Iseo - you can catch a ferry there to visit the Island or explore the lake. The bus was again around 20Euro return for the three of us.
Christiana told us about a local food festival in Bergamo and a good vantage point to watch some fireworks from. That was a magical evening for us watching the sun go down over the mountains and watching the show.
Its a long review - but I hope I have given you an idea that you don't need to hire a car if you come here, there is plenty to do and see. We will definitely come back some time again.

“perfect spot for a mini break”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

we loved staying at the place . its great location close to old town by foot... even my 7 year old enjoyed it. super fast train for a day in Milan and making day trips to Como or other cities.
Very clean and new place fantastic view from the window .. close to grocery shop as we made breakfast and dinner few times at the flat.
Wonderful host.
one thing to watch out for is for a tip that is included in the restaurant sometimes they can be 4 euro per person even kids... it was our first trip and we learn it the hard way ..

“Excellent stay”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Bergamo Citta Alta (Old Town) is located on top of the hill with Citta Bassa (busy city) on one side and Valeverde (countryside) on the other.
Ca' Mairu is located in Valeverde which means more quietness and nice green views over the closest mountains.
Reaching Old Town from the apartment means walking for about 15'-20' (buses available too).
Despite not being as bright as I thought, the blue apartment was an excellent clean place to stay with everything you need for cooking, sleeping and resting. I really liked it and for sure will return when back to Bergamo.
Note that there is a large supermarket open 24/7 close to the apartment (access : 10' by foot).

Cristiana met me at the 'airport bus' last stop in the city and drove me around the city to the apartment where she showed me the place and recommended places to eat or visit.

Tip : buy a bus pass inside the airport (not available on the outside platform) which allows to use city buses from the first stamped date and time for the whole duration of the pass.

Ca'mairu is everything that a tourist can dream about when we are talking about Bergamo and if the home feeling and coziness does matter. Both apartments we rented were pretty new, the furniture and all the equipment is placed to be convenient to the guest, you have everything-from full cosmetic set in the bathroom (full means more then 7-8 different things-lotions, shampoo,lotions, face cream, hair gel, etc) to the morning coffe and tea set- again different choices. In Italy- like in Italy- real high quality espresso! machine. The location is just perfect- quite neighborhood, but on a walking distance to saint Lorenzo entrance to old city of Bergamo. The hospitality were outstanding- Christiana provide us with great information, trattoria recommendation, full instructions about the place and also about the garage. I would be glad to be her guest again. Highly recommend this place!
