Here are seven fantastic reasons to visit Bergamo as soon as possible, characterized by Venetian Walls, cobblestone alleyways, and a warm atmosphere.
Bergamo is the place to go if you want to see a town that hasn’t been touched by time. Bergamo is the kind of location that hasn’t altered in centuries, with multiple historic churches and all the cobblestone pathways an Italian city could want.
In this Bergamo Free Walking Tour, you’ll explore the small lanes of the Citta Alta, as well as the ancient 12th-century church of Tempietto di Santa Croce, which is why several of the greatest reasons for visiting Bergamo is to learn about its history. We will also visit nearby, the Old Bishop’s Palace is decorated with centuries-old painted paintings, and the Cappella Colleoni (Colleoni Chapel) is one of Northern Italy’s outstanding specimens of Renaissance architecture.
This is one of Italy’s best preserved cities, situated in the mountains of the Bergamo Valley and bordered by several notable Italian lakes. It is 45 minutes from Milan and is home to Italy’s third busiest airport. It is divided into three sections, the first of which is San Vigilio, the next is Citta Alta, and the third is Citta Bassa. Each one is distinct in their own way. All we can say is that your tour will be well worth your time. We’re really looking forward to showing you around.
