BERGAMO SLOW

Description

Starting from Viale Vittorio Emanuele (the station at the bottom of the funicular) and going slowly upwards on foot,, you will pass through the historical Scaletta that connected the lower part of the city to the ancient center before the funiculars were built, a sign will indicate the start of Parco dei Colli.

Surrounded by the vegetation of the park, you’ll start a 250-meter climb, along a charming little pebble stone road that turns into stairs halfway through and leads to Via Sant’Alessandro, at the foot of Porta San Giacomo, one of the gates of the sixteenth-century Venetian Walls.

Going along Via San Giacomo you will reach Piazza Mercato delle Scarpe and, passing along the Medieval buildings in Via Gombito, you will reach Piazza Vecchia and the monumental center.  

 

The Palazzo della Ragione, Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, and Cappella Colleoni are only some of the most representative monuments that have continued to be proof of the city’s importance through the centuries.
