You've come to Bergamo, you have a few hours to spare and you're hungry? for food, but also for history, culture, art and, why not, for fun and relaxation.
Bergamo is worth more than 12 hours, but one day may be enough to enjoy all its charm. We want to
provide you with the correct "recipe" a mix of art galleries such as the GAMeC and the Accademia Carrara with historical museums, theaters and churches from every era.
Thyen we add in artisan and fashion stores. The dressing is the fascinating medieval Citta' Alta
sprinkdde throughly with the green of the Parco dei Colli, the Botanical Garden and the pre-Alps of Bergamo, the "Orobie"
We serve it with dishes such as polenta or casoncelli and wash it all down with local wines such as
valcalepio or Moscato Scanzo. Losing yourself among all these courses can be charming, but if you prefer to have some advice on where to go and what to see, we have created the right path for you.
You will find the Bergamust, everything that you can not miss in Bergamo.
