Bergamo might be one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. However, this little city sometimes goes unnoticed. It is located just 60 km from Milan, the financial epicentre of Italy. It is also close to Lago di Garda and Verona. Fortunately, thanks to low cost airlines from Barcelona it is quite easy to flight to the Orio al Serio International Airport. Most people use such airport as a low cost one for visiting Milan and that is what we did one cold weekend in February. But we also decided to visit this medieval jewel called Bergamo.
Most hotspots of Bergamo can be seen in only one day. It is said that when Le Corbusier visited the Piazza Vecchia (main square of Bergamo), he said that it was the most beautiful square in Europe. We’ve already been to some European squares (and have much more in our bucket list!) and the truth is that Bergamo really deserves one day of you time.
