Highlights of Bergamo Upper Town Private Walking Tour with Old "Funicolare" Ride
If you are staying in Milan you cannot miss a tour at the nearby city of Bergamo. Bergamo is an elegant medieval town divided in two parts, Upper Bergamo and Lower Bergamo. Your tour will concentrate on Upper Bergamo, which you will reach thanks to a cable train called in Italian Funicolare, with the help and company of your local guide. Bergamo is a traditional medieval town surrounded by defensive walls and with buildings built in medieval architecture. Spend some time in Piazza Vecchia and then go up the Campanone, the bell tower where you can admire at an amazing view of the whole city from atop. Next you will visit the Baroque church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Antico Lavatoio and the Cittadella Viscontea. The last stop will be a delicious one. Stop by an antique Gelateria and taste some Gelato. Italy’s favourite flavour is Stracciatella, a milk-based ice cream with chocolate shavings. Guess where it was invented? Right here in Bergamo! Take a try!
