Here you will meet your licensed tour guide for an amazing guided tour of Citta’ Alta, the old town of Bergamo, reachable with the funicular.
From Piazza Mercato delle Scarpe you will walk through medieval streets with their ancient charm , to the Rocca castle, once a defensive structure and now a spot for a spectacular view on the Lower Town.
You will reach Piazza Vecchia, surrounded by ancient communal palaces and the civic tower. The Piazza Duomo is right behind it with the unique Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, a jewel of Romanesque art, the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Colleoni Chapel, outstanding Renaissance buildings.
Strolling along the Corsarola, the main street of the Upper Town, flanked by old and modern shops and coffee-houses, you will reach the the Cittadella built by the Visconti family, with its timeless charm and Colle Aperto.
Before leaving you, your guide will be glad to suggest a restaurant in Bergamo to have lunch, our preference is La Marianna and we will be glad to make an à la carte reservation for you. Your driver will then pick you up and drive you back to Lake Como.
