What to experience in Bergamo
Boasting an extremely pretty location, Bergamo sits on the edge of the Alps with the historical part of the town, or the upper town, being full of amazing medieval and Renaissance architectural sights. You won’t want to miss the Palazzo della Ragione with its portico dating back to the 12th century or the church of Santa Maria Maggiore which houses a spectacular and ornate 1705 wooden confessional, said to look like sculptured chocolate.
One of Bergamo’s most popular attractions and an art lover's dream is the town’s 200 year old art gallery, the Accademia Carrara, containing works by the great masters Botticelli and Bellini. Raphael’s San Sebastiano is a particular highlight.
You can take a funicular ride to the small hilltop settlement of San Vigilio and admire the spectacular views to the mountains and lower town below. As well as the town’s many historic attractions there are plenty of places to enjoy a coffee and a relaxing pizza or just wander around the cobbled streets soaking up the atmosphere.
