City of a Thousand
In the foothills of the Alps, Bergamo is features a wealth of artistic treasures and a charming medieval atmosphere. It boasts two separate city centers, each with its own attractions. The upper city (citta alta) is a medieval hilltop town with such places to visit as Renaissance buildings surrounded by 17th-century defensive walls. The lower city (citta bassa) is a modern district of busy streets, residential buildings, shops, and restaurants. A network of cable cars, several major roads, and a series of footpaths connect this real-life tale of two cities. Driving and parking in the heart of the upper city can be a serious challenge, especially during the peak hours of the day, so sightseeing in this part of Bergamo is best done on foot or by bicycle. Bergamo is in Province of Bergamo. Take a look at our Italy trip itinerary builder tool to refine the details of your trip to Bergamo.
