Scorlazzone and Scorlazzino flights of stone steps

Description

The most particular and “local” way to move from Lower to Upper Bergamo is the “scalette”, our ancient flights of stone steps.

They are exclusively pedestrian pathways, paved with the typical cobblestones.

These steps climb up to the Città Alta, bordered by old dry stone walls, crossing fields, terraced gardens and beautiful mansions: with every step you’ll take, a new amazing landscape will appear.

For sport lovers

Combining the Scorlazzino and the Scorlazzone’s itineraries, you can reach 120 meters of height difference, running from via San Martino della Pigrizia up to the castle of San Vigilio! Not exactly a jog…
