Bergamo is approximately 30 minutes drive from Milan.
Just a short distance from Milan you will have the opportunity to admire one of the most beautiful medieval and Renaissance city center in the upper town of Bergamo.
Arrived in “Bergamo Bassa”, the lower part of Bergamo, you will ride the bright orange funicular up to Bergamo Alta, a stunning town that rises high into the sky. Your guide leads you through the medieval streets reaching the old square where you can visit the main sites of Bergamo including Colleoni Chapel, the main Cathedral and Church of Santa Maria Maggiore. With just a little more effort you can take the short (but steep!) walk up to the Rocca of Bergamo for a panoramic view to the verdant valleys below. Your local Lombardy guide, a lover of food and wine, will happily take you to taste some of the local wines in a wine bar in the center and you will have lunch in a wonderful restaurant to get a taste of the hearty Bergamo cuisine.
Full day excursion (hrs 09.00-15.00 with lunch)
