Piazza Vecchia, Bergamo

(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Situated in the heart of Bergamo's upper city, Piazza Vecchia serves as a historic reminder of the town's grandeur. Admire the plaza's classical architecture, displayed in the Palace of Reason, Scamozziano Palace, and marble arcade arches. The square's fountain is adorned with lions that Venice gave to the city in 1780. Several restaurants and cafes serve espresso, traditional regional specialties, and classic Italian pizzas. You can hike to the town, or take the nearby funicular if you'd rather not make the steep trek. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Piazza Vecchia and many more Bergamo attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Bergamo itinerary maker.

  • Beautiful and interesting ... takes you back to the medieval period in a blend of Venetian with Roman orientalisms. The glimpse that makes you see the great basilica square is very impressive! A square outside the box ... unusual. To be revised several times. Anna

  • Real gem of Renaissance architecture, the heart of the Città Alta di Bergamo, elegant and functional city that is never banal. The square, already a sacred place at the time of the ancient Romans, encloses a space quite gathered the main historical monuments and representative of the city. In both winter and summer sex artists that delights visitors with music and sounds.

  • You emerge from the streets and: ladies and gentlemen: here's the Renaissance! A gem perfectly calibrated with the palaces of power overlooking a part that Renaissance structures as often seems an Interior, an elegant sitting room that flares coming out from the middle ages to greet us and giving us space and light and especially the balance of architectural composition.
