The understated charm of Bergamo’s Lower Town

This delightful tour will help you understand the various transitions that the Lower Town of Bergamo has undergone from medieval times up until the present day. A wonderful way to discover the intricate relationship between the two towns, upper and lower, so different and yet so similar and interdependent.

The tour starts in front of the train station where an elegant boulevard will lead you to two neoclassical temples (Porta Nuova) that officially introduce you to the city centre. From there you can enjoy one of the most breathtaking views of the Upper Town and its surrounding hills.

A walking tour is the best way to discover Bergamo’s Lower Town (the Centro Piacentiniano) lined with 19th century buildings, elegant squares and fountains; one of the most striking aspects of the Lower Town is the way it always pays tribute, from an esthetical and architectural point of view, to its older sibling, the Upper Town. As you stroll through the city centre enjoying stunning views of the Upper Town, you will also get the chance to learn about the Donizetti Theatre, elegant public and private buildings and churches with amazing art masterpieces. Meandering along the so-called borghi, the old roads leading outside the town, is like taking a step back in time with higgledy-piggledy buildings, quaint shops, traditional craftsmen’s workshops and bars.
