Pleasantly surprised

Bergamo is about 40 km from Milan. It has a low cost airport which is why we visited. I was pleasantly surprised by its castles, renaissance houses, art, medieval feeling and, good Italian restaurants. We stayed just one afternoon but would have stayed two or three days if we had known all it had to offer. It is divided into Bergamo Alta and Baja. The low part is a very modern area, without much historical appeal and the top, where I stayed, is very medieval. La Piazza Vecchia (Old Square), is located in the heart of Bergamo and is the symbol of the city. It´s one of the most beautiful squares in Italy that overlooks the historic buildings and monuments such as the Civic Tower and the Campanone. Every night at 10, hundreds of bells chime. There is also a university which is the building that houses the civic library and beautiful fountain. I recommend enjoying an ice cream while strolling through the square.

Bergamo

Bergamo is a city that is situated within walking distance of Milan and, from Spain, it is more and more accessible due to low cost companies that are bound to land in Milan Orio al Serio airport which is very close to this city. Fortunately, it is not a horrible place, much less, and the tourist can have some nice walks around. The highlight of Bergamo is the "upper city". It is the old part and it is nice to talk a stroll through its streets, have an ice cream or granita or dine out. Also, from the top there are good views of the town and its surroundings. What's worse is that in the lower area of ​​the city, there is a part of the city that looks pretty dirty and sad.

Maxi croissants, pastry avda juan xxiii

Also called maxi-brioches, Bergamo Croissants are huge! I went to Bergamo at Christmas time and in addition to the inevitable panettone, I was surprised by the size of these croissants. Just look at the pictures where I compare them to the size of my hand! They cost more than 6 euros, and you need at least 4 people to eat one. I really wanted to try one, but it was a bit big for me on my own!

Bergamo

For those visiting Milan, it is advisable to visit the medieval city of Bergamo some 50 km away. It´s a lovely place to walk, enjoy an ice cream or sweet polenta or a magnificent pizza. To get here, take a train in the station and in 40 minutes can arrive. Then take the bus 1A and you will be taken to the wall of the city.

Beautiful medieval town

We arrived to Bergamo from Milan. We left our bags at the airport Baggage (is outside the building, facing the bus stop) and take the bus to Bergamo. It takes about fifteen minutes to reach the center of town. Then we took the funicular up to the appointment Alta, which is the oldest and most attractive part of the town. We went to the Piazza Vecchia to see it more closely. All of it is surrounded by several palaces of great beauty. Then we saw the Civic Tower, with its 52 meters high, is the symbol of the city. This building is also known as the Tower of Campanone, for the great bell that plays every night, at 22:00 pm, more than 100 shots that in ancient times was the "curfew" (closing time gates of the city). Behind this square where we visited the Duomo Sant'Alessandro Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Cappella Colleoni. and the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. A striking mix of architectural styles. As the magnificent Romanesque frescoes and magnificent baroque dome. Also we could admire a beautiful, well preserved, Florentine and Flemish tapestries and the tomb of the composer G. Donizetti. On leaving we strolled down the street and Gombito Colleoni, which is where most of the shops, cafes and bakeries. These are a delight for all the senses. They are truly spectacular. Emphasize the pastry Messi (via Gombito), only to see the showcase will make your mouth water. What cakes ... We reached the end of the street where we found a Christmas market with a variety of crafts. From there we could see the sights of the city under a lovely autumnal look. What beautiful colors. Back down to the gate of San Giacomo where we saw the walls and the entire city of Bergamo (low) lit. Amazing views. ' http://lamaletitadelosviajes.blogspot.com.es/search/label/milan'

Precioso pueblo medieval

Llegamos a Bérgamo desde Milan. Dejamos las maletas en la cosigna del aeropuerto (está fuera del edificio, frente la parada de los autobuses) y tomamos el bus hacia Bérgamo. Tarda unos quince minutos hasta llegar al centro del pueblo. Luego cogimos el funicular que nos subió a la Citá Alta, que es la parte más antigua y bonita del pueblo.

Fuimos a la Piazza Vecchia para verla con más detenimiento. Toda ella está rodeada por varios palacios de gran belleza. Luego vimos la Torre Cívica, que con sus 52 metros de altura, es el símbolo de la ciudad. Este edificio también es conocido como la Torre del Campanone, por la gran campana que toca todas las noches, a las 22:00h, más de 100 golpes que, en la antigüedad era el "toque de queda", (hora del cierre de las puertas de la ciudad).

Detrás de esta plaza encontramos la del Duomo donde visitamos la Catedral Sant'Alessandro, el Battisterio, la Cappella Colleoni. y la Basílica de Santa Maria Maggiore. Llama la atención la mezcla de estilos arquitectónicos. Como los magníficos frescos románicos y la grandiosa bóveda barroca. También pudimos admirar unos preciosos y bien conservados, tapices florentinos y flamencos y la tumba del compositor G. Donizetti.
Al salir dimos un paseo por la calle Colleoni y la Gombito, que es donde se encuentran la mayoría de las tiendas, cafeterías y pastelerías. Éstas son una auténtica delicia para todos los sentidos. Son realmente espectaculares. Destaco la pastelería Messi (via Gombito), sólo de ver el escaparate se te hace la boca agua. Qué pasteles...
Llegamos hasta el final de la calle donde encontramos un mercadillo navideño con una gran variedad de objetos artesanales. Desde allí pudimos contemplar las vistas de la ciudad bajo un aspecto otoñal encantador. Qué colores tan bonitos.

De vuelta bajamos hasta la puerta de San Giacomo donde vimos las murallas y toda la ciudad de Bérgamo (baja) iluminada. Unas vistas increíbles.

It is ideal for a small weekend getaway or to complete a trans-country trip, taking advantage of the low prices of flights from Spain. The story goes that the ancient city was destroyed by Attila Bergomum and then Italian and Venetian controlled territory. The city is divided clearly by what they call, the Città Alta and Città Bassa. The Upper Town is the oldest part and retains much of the medieval period, with ramparts and narrow stone streets. And the Città Bassa houses the most important public buildings with residential neighborhoods. Worth a wander through the streets of Città Alta, grab a gelato at any ice cream parlor, a pizza piccola weight at any trattoria, or down these charming streets that lead to the Piazza Vecchia. To climb to the top of the city can use a funicular. They are very narrow and steep streets where car use is not recommended. Its square, Piazza Vecchia, is one of the most beautiful in Italy and has a bell tower at ten at night makes ring their bells 100 times. From there you can easily access the Cathedral. Bergamo Cathedral, dedicated to the patron Saint Alexander of Bergamo, located in the Upper Town, in the Piazza del Duomo. Over the years it has undergone several transformations which explains its combination of artistic elements from all periods in which dominates the Romanesque and Baroque. Bergamo is undoubtedly one of the most atmospheric cities. Mix of old and new, evenings in the top of the city filled with young people to have an aperitif, where you can eat drink asking all there in the free bar. A unique atmosphere.

Es ideal para realizar una pequeña escapada de fin de semana o para completar un viaje por el país transalpino, aprovechando los bajo precios de los vuelos desde España. Su historia cuenta que la antigua ciudad de Bergomum fue destruida por Atila y que luego italianos y venecianos controlaron su territorio.

La ciudad esta dividida claramente por lo que allí llaman, la Città Alta y la Città Bassa. La Ciudad Alta es la parte más antigua y conserva mucho de la época medieval, con murallas y estrechas calles de piedra. Y la Città Bassa alberga los edificios públicos más importantes junto a los barrios residenciales.

Merece la pena perderse por las calles de la Città Alta, tomar un helado artesanal en cualquier heladería, un trozo de pizza al peso en cualquier piccola trattoria; o bajar por esas calles con encanto que te llevan a la Piazza Vecchia. Para subir a la parte alta de la ciudad se puede utilizar un funicular. Son calles muy estrechas y empinadas donde usar el coche no es recomendable. Su plaza, Piazza Vecchia, es una de las más bonitas de Italia y tiene un campanario que a las diez de la noche hace sonar sus campanas 100 veces. Desde allí se puede acceder fácilmente a la Catedral.

La Catedral de Bérgamo, dedicada al patrón San Alejandro de Bérgamo, ubicado en la Ciudad Alta, en la Piazza del Duomo. A lo largo de los años ha sufrido diversas transformaciones lo que explica su combinación de elementos artísticos de todas las épocas en los que domina el románico y el barroco.

Bérgamo es, sin duda, una de las ciudades con más ambiente. Mezcla de tradición y modernidad, las tardes en la parte alta de la ciudad se llenan de jóvenes a tomar el aperitivo, donde pidiendo la bebida puedes comer todo lo que hay en la barra gratis. Un ambiente singular.

With unknown miln

In an attempt to meet Milan, so to be the Mecca of fashion and see the Doumo, I got a cheap ticket with Irish company, but flying to Milan Bergamo Airport. It is walking distance from Milan Bergamo worth but a couple of days. City's high and low. The floor is an extension like any other city with a historic rally but the upper town is wonderful. It is accessible by cable car or walk up stairs looooong. From the airport can be reached by bus and metro in minutes for a euro and little, that bus drops you at the funicular station and from there on foot or other little euro. In the upper town, let yourself be guided by your instinct, soon come to the cathedral square. There is an exhibition hall which sometimes has interesting samples. Next to the Cathedral Square is a pedestrian street, close, very Italian lol, where the right hand side you'll find a bakery pizzeria where you can eat the best pizza you've ever eaten weight.

Desconocida junto a milán

Con la intención de conocer Milán, por eso de ser la Meca de la moda y ver el Doumo, saqué unos billetes baratos con una compañía irlandesa, que vuela a Milán pero hasta el aeropuerto de Bérgamo.
Está a poca distancia de Milán pero Bérgamo merece la pena un par de días. Está la ciudad alta y la baja. La baja es un ensanche como el de cualquier otra ciudad con algún repunte histórico pero la ciudad alta es una maravilla.
Se puede acceder en funicular o a pie subiendo muuuchas escaleras. Desde el aeropuerto se puede llegar en autobús metropolitano en pocos minutos y por un euro y poco, ese autobús te deja en la estación del funicular y desde ahí a pie u otro euro y poco.
En la ciudad alta, déjate guiar por tu instinto, en breve llegarás a la plaza de la catedral. Hay una sala de exposiciones que en ocasiones tiene muestras interesantes.
Junto a la plaza de la catedral hay una calle peatonal, estrecha, muy italiana jejeje, donde a mano derecha encontrarás una pizzería-panadería donde podrás comer las mejores pizzas al peso que jamás hayas comido.

If you have little time, perhaps noon...

If you have little time, perhaps noon, should invest in the "upper town" or old part of the city. Advisable to wander through its quiet streets and squares. Advisable to eat in a small restaurant by the delightful Piazza Luigi Angelini or try one of the ice cream can be purchased at the Piazza Vecchia. Recommended, even for non-believers, are the temples of worship.

Si dispones de poco tiempo, acaso mediodía, merece invertirlo en la "ciudad alta" o parte antigua de la ciudad. Recomendable es deambular por sus tranquilas calles y plazas. Recomendable comer en un pequeño restaurante que hay en la deliciosa Piazza Luigi Angelini o saborear uno de los helados que se pueden adquirir en la Piazza Vecchia. Recomendables, aún para los no creyentes, son sus templos de culto.

I was with my family for ten days staying in an apartment in Citta Alta Brgamo, a beauty rarely visited northern Italy, and walked ah lakes and mountains. It is a very clean, with historical sites and monuments to be seen, and perhaps go beyond charming town bergamasca the region, and also the food, and the local specialty, polenta.

Belleza medieval

Estuve con mi familia durante diez días alojado en un apartamento en la Citta Alta de Bérgamo, que es una belleza poco visitada del norte de Italia, y de ahí paseamos por lagos y montañas. Es una ciudad encantadora, muy limpia, con lugares históricos y monumentos que se deben ver, y quizás recorrer aparte de la región bergamasca, también la comida, y la especialidad local, la polenta.
