Meet your licensed guide and your driver in Milan and enjoy a 1-hour ride towards Bergamo on a luxury car/minivan. Once in the city center, you will get on the characteristic funicular railway that connects the lower to the upper part of the city and start discovering Bergamo Alta. You will immediately have the chance to enjoy an incredible view over the lower part of Bergamo and its surroundings from the Venetian Works of Defence, a wall built between the XVI and XVII centuries by the Republic of Venice.
The visit will continue to the very heart of the old town, Piazza Vecchia, where you will admire the Palazzo della Ragione with its curious meridian, the highest Tower of Bergamo called “Campanone” by the locals and Palazzo Nuovo, that now hosts a public library. Your guide will then lead you to Piazza Duomo to visit the amazing Bergamo Cathedral and Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica.
After the lunch break, you will pass by Piazza Mercato delle Scarpe, an ancient shoe marketplace and by Piazza Mercato del Fieno. Finally, you will get to admire a perfectly preserved, ancient washhouse (Lavatoio), built in 1881
Once the funicular railway brings you back to the lower part of town, your private minivan will bring you back to Milan. Take your time to ask the guide the questions that still cross your mind or ask for tips about your stay!
