Almost 5 thousand hectares of protected natural landscape. A perfect ecosystem designed over the centuries by man's hands: historic villages and vineyards, chestnut woods and olive groves.
Starting from the heart of Upper Bergamo you can reach the Astino and Valmarina valleys along the Road of the Benedictine Monasteries, a pedestrian/cycle bath surrounded by green hills. And, if you have fit legs, why not climb to the top of Canto Alto mountain, widening your gaze across the Apennines. Take a break in one of the agriturismos and taste some of the area’s authentic products. You’ll find all of this within Bergamo’s Parco dei Colli, the third largest park in Lombardy, which since 1977 has been preserving the territory and its peculiarities. Where every day is a discovery.
“Bergamo’s landscape is really the most beautiful I have ever seen. The woods on the hills behind Bergamo are more enchanting than you could ever imagine.” – Stendhal
