Full description
Join this 2.5-hour guided tour of downtown Bergamo and discover the Lower Town, the modern center of Bergamo. Starting from the train station, you'll walk along the main alley that was laid out in the middle of the 19th-century and which marks - for the city - the transition into the modern age. Follow your local guide until you arrive to Porta Nuova - from here, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the superb skyline of the Upper Town.

This is where the heart of the Lower Town begins. Let's cross the "Sentierone," that represents the favorite promenade of the Bergamask people, and walk towards the Torre dei Caduti. If you're passionate about history and the terrible World War II, have a look at this tower - it represents the splendid monument created by the sculptor Giacomo Manzù in honor of Italy’s partisans.

Continue your tour and don't forget to take a look at the fascinating and mysterious ancient cloister of Santa Marta. Your walk will end through the attractive shops, boutiques and restaurants of the Lower Town, where you can't skip a taste of the famous “polenta e osei,” the typical Bergamask dessert. Just one tip: you might want to bring your camera along.
