  • The Gunner of the Venetian walls are two: St. John and St. Michael. The object of my review is from the 16th century and located on the Hill of the same name. Thanks to a renovation in 2009 was opened to the public. The Gunboat has two mouths of fire, large rooms where were placed the artillery and ammunition and an exit that leads to the foot of the walls. Above there is a sundial that marks the daylight saving time, that of the Sun and the wind rose. From here you can enjoy a nice view over lower Bergamo.

  • Awesome

  • Old gunboat which was used for the protection of the old city. There are several along the walls. This was restored and it can come down to see you during opening hours. The visit lasts a few minutes and allows you to view only certain circles but is free. If you are passing a ride deserves.

  • Ancient shooting positions for cannons made now accessible to tourists. Worthwhile a visit in order to better understand the complexity of the defensive system consists of the Venetian walls of Bergamo. Inside there are exhibits but the entrance is free

  • The gunboat is reached via a steel staircase leading down into the ground, consisting of rooms where there were the guns of defense within the majestic walls of the upper town. Visit time short, free admission.
