5 things to do


The heart of Lower Bergamo, the "Sentierone" (actually Piazza Matteotti) is the tree-lined street and porch on one side lined with historic buildings such as the Teatro Donizetti, with near the memorial, and the Church of St. Bartolomeo, which I appreciated especially the facade.

Left of Sentierone aprevia XX Settembre that proseguefino in Pontida Square: it is an elegant pedestrian street with many luxury shops and because of this it can be considered the "Via Montenapoleone of Bergamo".

Invece, walking on the other side, in Via Torquato Tasso, come out in Via Pignolo, with lachiesa S. Spirit corner. Here we are in the ancient borgoche is characterized by its narrow and uphill streets, clear signs that we are heading towards the top of the city.

A tip: to capture Bergamo in a suggestivacartolina-remember the ideal is to go in Viale Vittorio Emmanuele II, up to Porta Nuova: the view is gorgeous, with in the foreground the two neoclassical buildings on the roadside and Sentierone; look then stands leaning on the background to the hill on which stands the High City and its palaces.

 the perimeter of the walls

"Every noise, every machine roar should be banned as a desecration execrable."- Le Corbusier

The historic center of Bergamo, as few other Italian localities, is entirely surrounded by the walls, the structure of which has remained virtually unchanged. You puòraggiungere the village medievaleattraverso the funicular (fee uphill) or by a pleasant passeggiatapanoramica starting for example from Via Pignolo. The road to the Porta S. Augustine, whose construction inizo in time to that of the walls, which in the sixteenth century.

Il first vantage point is from the nearby former convent of S. Augustine, now the university. The view is fantastic and you can see the wall that divides the core of Bergamo high on a number of clusters of villas and mansions perched on the hills and in the green of the surrounding vegetation.

Lungo the perimeter of the walls there are small gardens and benches abound: if you want to make a picnic or just relax outdoors these places are great! The relaxation will be ensured by the fact that here pass a few cars, hardly you will know; well as aircraft maneuvering in close Orio there will disturb airport.

Se want to peer into the Lower Town, then I suggest you go the other way, toward Laporta S. James, from where you can also go down through the staircase. The avenue alberatocosteggia the walls on one side and the medieval city center on the other. Every so often you find the pitches (surcharge) where to park the car and then continue on foot. Very impressive is the sunset on buildings of the most modern areas Bergamoed while watching the sun "dies" slowly on the horizon, behind the hill.

: Castle of Vigilio

Strolling over the former convent of S. Augustine and follow the signs you come to Colle S. Vigilio, 461 m. high, dominated by the homonymous the castle in which today remained of the sections of walls and the remains of four observation towers. These are located on a large wooded yard (and public park) from where we can to observe the hills that surround the city and the plain in the distance. To admire instead the dellaBergamo high profile the best view you have it on the way to the hill.

Ancora, before beginning the ascent recommend making a detour to the neighboring Channel village: in fact, in addition to noting the rural character of the area remained intact, at n. 14 is the birthplace of the famous composer Gaetano Donizetti.

These places are located beyond the most touristic area, stand out for their silence and seems to walk "suspended" in the past.

The hike to the hill deserves for its panoramic views, though it is an uphill path suggest it without haste, with several stops and especially avoiding the hottest hours as you walk almost always under the sun. For those who wanted even for this stretch there is the cable car and the ride is in Rocca

If you want to see the Upper Town and its most beautiful buildings from vicinosenza But getting to the top of the castle of St. Vigilio, then the Rock is the place for you. Located a few hundred meters from Piazza Vecchia, the imposing tower with tricolor welcomes you in the Memorial Park. Pass the royal entrance door and you will find you are in a museum under the open sky. In fact, the sides of the path rise of monuments dedicated to the War Memorial and displaying some models of cannons and old tanks. This perchéall'interno building houses the nineteenth-century section of the Historical Museum (entrance fee).

Se decide to treat yourself to stay out of not only "two steps in the history" but also a stop on the benches placed in the garden to contemplate the wonder that surrounds you. The dense vegetation provides a bit 'of shade, especially during the hot summer days .: Piazza Vecchia and Piazza del Duomo

"You can not even have to touch a stone, it would be a crime."- Le Corbusier

Among a small road and the other open suddenly LaPiazza Old and the Duomo. The first, especially, it is striking for its size and is the beating heart of the Upper Town and privileged point of meeting of the inhabitants. Here, many tourists can not help but be charmed by the buildings that make up the square built between 1440 and 1493. To have the miglioreconsiglio view to position the height of the eighteenth century fountain that is located exactly in the center.

I especially liked ilPalazzo New, whose construction took several centuries and was only completed in the 20s of last century. Today it houses the public library and in the arcades people gather to chat scrutinizing the comings and goings of people crowding the square.Dirigendosi the other side and passing between the Palazzo della Ragione, where once there was the City, and the right comunalesulla tower, you will come out in Piazza del Duomo, the religious center of Bergamo. On the left is ilDuomo with his nineteenth-century facade; then S. Maria Maggiore, Romanesque building from the twelfth-thirteenth century with a rich exterior decorative elements and different things to see inside, including the tomb of Donizetti; Finally, on the right, the small Baptistery with fourteenth-century statues. The two churches are open to visitors and admission is free.
