Bergamo_Starting_Point

Bergamo is a beautiful and ancient city, of about 120,000 inhabitants, located in between the plains and the mountains. In fact it is divided into two parts: the oldest city on the hill (Upper Town), and the modern city which stretches along the plain (Lower Town): as an element of separation there are the beautiful Venetian walls of the sixteenth century.

Rich in history, art, monuments, and magnificent views, it is a unique city, and it is certainly worth visiting with us!
