What to Expect
Spend an afternoon in the beautiful old town of Bergamo, one of the 4 Italian cities (along with Ferrara, Lucca and Grosseto), which is still completely surrounded by walls. This tour offers round-trip transfer to Bergamo, including a guided tour of the old town.
Bergamo's enchanting old town, which is also known as “Città Alta”, is a medieval city surrounded by ramparts and walls. Most of the impressive constructions were erected in the sixteen century, when Bergamo was under Venetian domination. While the original settlement was built on a hill enclosed by walls, the newer part of the city is stretched out in the surrounding plains. Cable railways will take you from the newer parts of Bergamo to the castle or to the so called upper town on the hill.
On the two hour guided walking tour with your local tourist guide, you will hear many historic facts and anecdotes about Bergamo's rich and diverse history. Among other things, the tour will take you to the old square Piazza Vecchia around which the city has been built. You will also have the chance to see many other monuments of great historical value, such as the Cathedral, Palazzo del Comune, Palazzo della Ragione, and the Colleoni Chapel.
Bergamo's green surroundings are also extremely interesting to see and you will be able to see some beautiful Italian country-style houses, gardens & woods.
