Visiting Bergamo means coming into contact with the most authentic and ancient Lombardy, where the atmosphere of Manzoni is relieved before your eyes in the beauty of the upper town and the unspoiled nature of the nearby Alps.
We start from the upper town, a precious jewel set between the lake and the mountains which can be reached by cable car, in itself a spectacular journey to admire the Alps and the city walls from above.
'Berghem de sura' (as it is called in dialect) already developed in the Romanesque age and expanded in the late Middle Ages until its full growth in the Renaissance period.
History, art and culture have been intertwined since those times giving life to an urban context that is still intact and enchanting today. Start from Piazza Vecchia and look around: between the silence and tranquillity of the place stands the eighteenth-century Contarini fountain in the centre and around it an embroidery of palaces. First of all Palazzo della Ragione, ating back to 1100 is the oldest municipal seat of Lombardy which boasts the Sala delle Capriate on the first floor and the frescoes by Bramante and then Palazzo Nuovo with the Angelo Mai library which preserves books and precious writings among the most important in Italy.
The symbol of the city is the Campanone, next to the Palazzo del Podestà, which stands on the square and which traditionally tolls the sound of its bells 100 times every evening.
Passing under the square's arcades, one looks onto Piazza Duomo, the emblem of ecclesiastical power strongly represented by the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
Built in 1137 as a votive gift for the plague epidemic, it amazes the visitor for its grandeur and the spectacular side doors that adorn it. Here, you can also find the tomb of Gaetano Donizetti, an illustrious citizen of Bergamo.
One curiosity: Piazza Duomo was not only the fulcrum of episcopal life, but trade also took place here and even today the walls of the square show the units of measurement useful for cloth merchants.
Next to the church stands the sixteenth-century and very famous Colleoni Chapel, enriched by the wonderful frescoes by Tiepolo. A walk among the ancient fortification walls still perfectly preserved and then go down to the city 'de sota', for a shopping tour and a visit, a must, to the Accademia Carrara where 1793 paintings by Raphael, Titian, Pinturicchio, Mantegna, Tiepolo, Rubens await you: an unparalleled enjoyment for the eyes and soul of every visitor!
Outside the city
Just 20 km from Bergamo there is a UNESCO heritage site, absolutely unique in type and function: it is the Crespi-d'Adda Village, an incredible late-nineteenth-century testimony of entrepreneurial enlightenment.
In this place, you will experience the thrill of living in a time as ""new inhabitants"" of the largest site of industrial archaeology in the world!
An entire village of houses, with a school, church, laundry room, theatre, hospital, general store and even a fire brigade building. Just think, even today the village is inhabited by the descendants of the ancient Crespi cotton mill who populate it, clearly claiming its origins and its socio-cultural identity.
You are in Franciacorta, home of wineries and fine DOCG bubbles, a place where going for wine is a tribute to the land and its skilled producers.
You can sample directly from the barrels and also visit lago d'Iseo, a sought-after destination for peace, quiet, beauty and good food or immerse yourself in the nature of the Orobie Alps where, with a little luck, you will meet the local fauna by climbing among the mountains.
And if you are interested in the mountains, then here you will find the best you can imagine: Santa Caterina, the Tonale pass, Ponte di Legno, Livigno. Snow-covered landscapes in winter and splendidly blooming in summer, a natural paradise where you can get lost between a ski descent and a steaming polenta, taking refuge in a hut.
