Upper Bergamo
The city lies on the hills overlooking the plain since Roman times. Sheltered by the imposing Venetian wall, enclosing a thousand and one treasures.
Upper Bergamo
Piazza Vecchia: perfect and unchanged over the centuries, it is the hub of the Upper Town, a meeting place and a stopover to admire the masterpieces that surround it on all four sides.
Upper Bergamo
The Walls: since the 1500s the wall has surrounded Bergamo’s historic core, protecting it from invaders and the corrosion of time. Towers, bastions, casemates and 4 gates alternate along its 6000m perimeter.
Upper Bergamo
San Vigilio: a majestic castle dominates the city of Bergamo. A visible symbol of power, it was also a defensive stronghold in case of invasion, with its hidden underground passageways.
Upper Bergamo
The Bell Tower: every night at 10pm it chimes 100 times, a reminder of the days when the bell warned of the imminent closing of the wall’s gates. Let yourself be kidnapped by the Upper Town for a night.
