I remember as if it was yesterday when I posted on Facebook “Bergamo or Brescia for a day?” The vote slightly favoured Bergamo and so it became our go through town on the way from Milano to Lago di Garda. At the moment we set foot on the ground in Bergamo I couldn’t have been happier with that decision. I mean I don’t know about Brescia yet. But Bergamo was definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited.
The town is built in three layers. You’re starting at the bottom of the hill with the new town of Bergamo where we had our accommodation. Then you go up the hill to the beautiful old town of Bergamo and enjoy the view over the new town, the airport (It’s the cheap airport for Milano) and the mountains. But then there is still the third layer. You go up to what has been an old castle and from there you have such a wonderful view. Be sure that there will be a lot more pictures from Bergamo here on that blog. Attached you find the link to our accommodation which I can highly recommend.
