Borgo Canale

Description

It’s one of the most panoramic sites of the city. You can enjoy a breath-taking view of the flatland from one side, and an unusual view of Città Alta from the other, admiring its amazing towers, belfries and domes.

This corner of Bergamo is an oasis of peace and romance, indeed, where you can stop and stare at the landscape without being bothered by traffic, or you can walk down the old narrow alleys.

Moreover, in one of these streets the famous composer Gaetano Donizetti was born. 


Visit the birth house of this internationally renowned musician, mostly famous for his amazing operas, now turned into a cosy museum collecting numerous relics and memorabilia: it will be like going back to the XIX Century.

The Funicular also dates back to the same period! At the end of the day, we recommend you to enjoy a trip on this particular means of transport, located at the beginning of Borgo Canale, leading to the San Vigilio Hill.

Here you can have a drink as the sunset light warms up the sky, overlooking the whole city of Bergamo.
