Beautiful Spot in Bergamo!

  • 5 of 5

our host Alessandra was all you could ask for at this amazing flat. RIght in the heart of Citta Alta the roof deck is spellbinding with 360 degree views of the city. Our host guided us to some amazing Italian food and sights to see. The flat was amazing and has been in her husbands family for 100 years and clean and comfortable as it gets. The location is close to everything Bergamo! Do not pass this up it is something we will cherish forever. Thank You for having us Alessandra we hope to see you again soon. Jamie and Sheila. I tulia nuovi amici!!

Comfortable, historic, well-equipped apartment in Citta Alta.

  • 5 of 5

Bergamo is a lovely city and there is no better way to experience Citta Alta then staying in once was an 18th century palazzo up a quiet street very near to the funicular that takes you to Citta Bassa. The apartment is on the 2nd floor - no lift - and has a large living room, kitchen with just about anything you need including a washer. The bedroom is large with plenty of closet space & drawers. The bathroom is fine. The owner, Alessandra, is very helpful and lives in the same building. Do note that their is no air conditioning, however, there is a lovely cross breeze from the windows. Also note that Bergamo churches love to ring their bells. And at 10PM every evening the bells ring 100 times - a centuries old tradition. We stayed three nights and decided at the last moment to take the 45 minute bus ride to Lake Iseo and we were glad we did. Don't miss the Accademia Carrara gallery art museum. Note that the taxi from the train station is Euro 10 and if you have luggage you don't want to have to deal with a bus to the funicular then the two block walk up a river rock road! Bergamo is a fabulous city and this property is an excellent choice to feel like a local!

Elegant and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is my first stay in this apartment, although not my first stay with Alessandra. A special treat in this apt., was the novelty of sitting on the refurbished roof deck with a glass of vino, listening to the church bells and enjoying the views.I enjoy her hospitality and beautiful historic building so much that I return on my frequent trips to Italy. And Citta Alta feels like I am going home, my heart is sad when I depart.

Unforgettable stay in comfortable and characterful house

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough of this property. The flat is at the top of a beautiful old building, accessed off a quiet cobbled street and a massive gate. From the bedroom window is a view across the old town and the hills and mountains beyond, and there is even a roof terrace. Each morning we were woken by the bells of the town. The flat is minimally and tastefully furnished and has a comfortable, homely feel. There is a powerful shower which sounds like a vespa scooter, and lovely old furniture. The owner Alessandra was really helpful and easy to get hold of but also I liked the fact that she let us be. Bergamo itself is a fascinating place. We stayed for nine nights in December and there was no shortage of things to do, As well as exploring the town we particularly loved the amazing walks out into the hills, all along little roads and endless cobbled paths and steps, with beautiful views across the plain and to the mountains. I had not taken my 'proper' walking boots so these walkways were ideal. We were very sad to leave and would love to go back some time.

Perfect location, comfortable, fully equipped apartment in a beautiful old "palazzo"

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located just meters from the very center of the historical area of Bergamo, but on a quiet street but with very easy access to restaurants and its pretty commercial streets. It is situated on the top floor of a historical building with a very nice entrance as shown in the various pictures. The apartment is very comfortable, with a fully furnished living room/dining room area, equipped kitchen, bathrooms and master bedroom of good proportions. For those driving, non resident parking is not allowed in the historical center of Bergamo, except for a limited time to load/unload suitcases. However long-term free parking is available some distance away. On a one very positive note, the owners were extremely helpful in getting us settled, and communication with them was nothing short off excellent. I would most certainly recommend this apartment to those that want to stay in the beautiful center of Bergamo's Citta Alta.

Car: not necessary

The province of Bergamo will amaze you for its variety. Renowned for Città Alta – the Upper City – one of Lombardy's most fascinating locations, it is rich with history and culture, all the while surrounded by the Bergamo Alps, gentle hills and crystalline lakes.

The Upper City is an enchanting medieval town, enclosed in intact 16th century Venetian walls, all cradled within the refreshingly green setting of the Park of the Hills. On foot you will discover not only magnificent monuments, but quaint cobblestone lanes winding past centuries-old houses. The ancient city spreads out into characteristic burgs in the lower and dynamic city with its smart shops, museums and the Donizetti theatre.

Lake Iseo, of glacial origin, is one of Lombardy's most beautiful lakes where you will find Europe's largest lake island. The lake teems with trout and pike, while its shores produce a superb olive oil.
