Bergamo Half-Day Tour

by Zani Viaggi
Duration 5h
  • Free cancellation
  • No booking or credit card fees

Set in the beautiful, scenic foothills of the Alps, Bergamo is a charming medieval city with much to discover. After a short drive from Milan, spend the afternoon taking in the city center's main churches, squares, and landmarks during a guided 2-hour walk.

Divided into 2 main sections separated by a funicular railway, Bergamo is a remarkable city with a fascinating history. The upper city—or Città alta—is situated atop a hill, with splendid views across the plains and to the Alps. Celts, Goths, Romans, and Lombards have all lived within the city walls, but the 4 centuries of domination by the Venetians are the most significant in the creation of its history and culture.

Head down to the more modern part of the city where your knowledgeable guide walks you past the Piazza Vecchia, which is the central hub of the city and where the locals come to gather. Explore the beautiful Basilica of St. Maria Maggiore and admire the splendid views extending all the way to Lake Como before the scenic drive back to Milan.
