From the top of Bergamo | Italy

Bergamo in Italy. HDR Photo from top of Castello di San Vigilio

Bergamo is the town that surprised me the most on all my trips through Italy. It is built in three layers, starting at the bottom of the hill with the new town (Città Bassa) where we had our accommodation. That part of the city was nothing special in my opinion. It’s beautiful but not outstanding. With the bus you can go up to the old town (Città Alta) and here you will discover all the beauty of Bergamo. The view from the old city walls and the architecture within the walls are breathtaking. But that’s not enough. With a cable car you can go further up, up to the ruins of the Castello di San Vigilio which is located above Bergamo. From there you have a view on the new and old town in the same time and the panoramic Alps in the background. While standing there I noticed myself thinking, hell – why did I plan only one day for Bergamo?

Bergamo will definitely be able to welcome us again. The flights are cheap as the airport of the town serves as a cheap way to get to Milan. My advice: When going through Bergamo to Milan, plan at least a day for Bergamo – in my opinion that’s worth more than a day in Milan.

Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
