Time seems to have come to a halt in the ancient hill city of Upper Bergamo.
Countless historical visions that will remain on printed on your mind converge magically in a single spot, the square of Piazza Vecchia, also known as Bergamo's living room. There is more than one way to reach it.
By going through its many medieval roads you will notice how easily they tie together. You will notice different viewing perspectives from several points that highlight how ancient buildings look.
First of all, there is the Contarini Fountain that to this day emanates a XVIIth century beauty and makes quite a spectacle in the middle of the square with its mild colors.
Not far from there you stumble upon elegant and imposing buildings that evoke silent memories of a distant past. Palazzo Nuovo displays harmonious Renaissance style outlines alongside Palazzo del Podestà, Palazzo della Ragione and the Civic Tower.
Stop at a historical café and take a pleasant break while you watch life passing by at a slower pace. The magic of this ancient town is everywhere, away from urban noise.
You will surely remember the elegance of such an inspiring Venetian-style atmosphere.
