Continue to Piazza Vecchia, where you will find the Palazzo della Ragione, the highest Tower of Bergamo or 'Campanone', and Palazzo Nuovo. Your guide will then lead you to Piazza Duomo to visit the amazing Bergamo Cathedral, the Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica, and the Colleoni Chapel. After a lunch break, your tour will continue around the picturesque alleys and squares that characterize Bergamo Alta. Pass by Piazza Mercato delle Scarpe, Piazza Mercato del Fieno, and the S.

Great discovery and great tour!

I have been many times in Milan, and this time I decided to try something new... I am so glad I chose this tour and to visit Bergamo Upper Town! The town is not far from Milan and it is really amazing and full of history, you wouldn't expect it! The group was small and our guide Silvia was incredible, so passionate about her job and the city. Transportation was comfortable and time just flew! I highly recommend to everyone!
