Bergamo Bassa

In Bergamo the visit starts from the bottom of the town, from its historic villages, and goes on by climbing slowly

It has to be discovered through the twists and turns of its historical streets and numerous parks. Follow our suggestions!

The ancient center of Bergamo Bassa (lower city) is made up of hamlets: San Leonardo, Pignolo and Santa Caterina. They developed in an exponential way starting from the XIX century, when city life started to move from the upper part to the lower.

We suggest you take walk through these ancient streets, where there are still craftsman workshops and labs, where you can find objects and clothes that are unique and original.

The city center is called "piacentiniano" because it was created at the beginning of the XX century by the famous architect Piacentini: discover the majestic buildings that delineate the space, with tree lined roads inspired by the Parisian boulevards.

For a happy hour, go to Piazza Pontida: there are many bars with happy hours and dj sets to chat and dance with friends. After dinner, Borgo Caterina, with live music and delicious cocktails. 

Accademia Carrara and GAMeC are to be visited if you want some art, while if you want to go from modern to contemporary times, simply walk through via S.Tomaso. walking through the GreenWay, that runs along the Morla river, will show you the natural side of Bergamo, less known but so delightful to see.

Are you active and aware? You can move around the city by BIGI,  a smart bike sharing service, with stations all around the town.  

Talking about green, you have to visit the Trucca park, animated during the summer by numerous events and admire the valley of bio and native diversity and that frames the ex Monastery of Astino. The little ones will have fun at Suardi Park, a green oasis in the middle of the city.

Bergamo, a city for everyone!
