Lovely apartment in a great location. Great for exploring the city.

  • 5 of 5

Arriving on a Friday and leaving on the Monday meant we had to pack a great deal into a couple of days. This apartment was perfect for the 3 of us. Very clean and well maintained and we felt very safe and secure. We had a lovely welcome from Mariella. Having caught a bus from the airport it was a 2 minute walk from the bus stop just before Cita Alta to our front door. Loads of great restaurants and bars close by and a perfect bakery for the morning pastries 3 minutes away. This was a great weekend for us and it was made all better by staying here.

Comfortable and welcoming apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our week in Bergamo. Very traditional, exceptionally clean and comfortable. Be aware that there is no elevator and the apt is on the second floor. It is easy to take the bus to Città Alta and the train station. Bergamo is a perfect location for day trips to Bolzano, Lake Garda and Verona.

Best aperitif is available in a tiny local place right in the corner; two excellent restaurants (1) Il Circolino (very traditional) in the Città Alta and (2) Benigni ( high end but reasonably priced) on San Tommaso close to the apartment.

Thanks to Mariella for her hospitality.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful few days in Bergamo. The apartment is beautiful and spacious. The photos do not do it justice. In a good area close to Citta Alta and Citta Bassa. All you could need. Fantastic!

A magical holiday in and around beautiful Bergamo

  • 5 of 5

L'Affresco is a delightful apartment on the beautiful Via Pignolo.

It was exactly as the photos showed and description stated, it was beautifully clean, well maintained and Mariaella was extremely helpful and accommodating, without being in anyway intrusive.

The apartment is about a 1 minute walk from a delightful bar/cafe with outside seating overlooking the fountain. Many other bars and restaurants and all other amenities can be reached within a 5-10 minutes walk.

The No.1 bus (the airport to Citti Alta bus route) is 1 minute's walk in the opposite direction, but it is also easy to walk up to the Citti Alta in about 15 minutes.

Bergamo (and this apartment) is also an ideal base to explore the surrounding area; we opted to use public transport and the trains and buses were frequent and easy to use. We visited both Milan and Lecco (on Lake Como) twice by train and made several trips to Lake Iseo, by bus from Bergamo to Lovere and Sarnico. At both Lakes we had plenty of time to take boat trips to other towns on the lakes.

We would, and already have, recommended L'Affresco and Bergamo to friends or relatives!

"The apartment was very good, clean and good equipped. The owner was very nice and helpfull. The beds were good. The only problem was the noise of the traffic in the street, but when the windows were closed we slept well. Is was a very nice walk to the centre of the wonderfull old town."
