This exciting guided tour, departing from Milan, will lead to the discovery of the Città Alta, in the city of Bergamo: an extraordinary place whose foundations date back to prehistoric times. You will visit the fortified town surrounded by ancient walls, admiring the historic beauties of Bergamo.
Do not miss this excursion departing from Milan to discover the Città Alta (Upper Town) of Bergamo. Visit a place of sublime beauty and antiquity, where the streets have kept intact their medieval atmosphere, with buildings and arched portals of great historical importance.
From a distance, the Città Alta looks majestic with its five kilometers of walls that surround it, and behind, the profiles of towers and steeples towering boast a great elegance.
The comfortable cable cars will transport you quickly on the Città Alta, puncturing the imposing walls and reaching up to the Castle of San Vigilio. An exciting journey through time that you will give you the opportunity to discover a charming place out of the classic tourist trail.
Preserved in excellent condition, the walls are evidence of the Venetian ramparts that since the 15th century defended the city. Many are the populations that have taken place over the centuries in the domain on the hill, but the most important period is the domination of the Venetian Republic, which lasted four centuries.
The guided tour will start in Piazza Vecchia, the ancient heart of the city. From here winds a maze of streets and picturesque alleys dotted with handicraft shops, markets and typical restaurants.
Accompanied by your expert guide, your tour of the Città Alta will continue between historic and religious monuments of great value. The itinerary includes the Municipal Palace, the Palace of Reason, the Cathedral, the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Colleoni Chapel and the Baptistery.
Moreover, from the square of Colle Aperto (the most panoramic point of the city) you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the green rolling hills surrounding Bergamo.
