Piazza Vecchia, Bergamo

(4.7/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • Next to the Church of Santa Maria the greater, this plaza collects the charm of the city high of Bergamo. The streets that the surround and the same square are very beautiful and historical. Happy stroll through here.

  • Let me start by saying that I live close enough and when I switch from this square doesn't change to stop and contemplate the beauty and admire what our ancestors accomplished. It's beautiful, clean with a museum to visit. All the little streets that lead us are uniquely beautiful.

  • Few tourists during our visits in the Città alta, which was ideal to admire this very nice little place and its monuments, before the discovery of the more religious monuments in the background first. The lack of Sun has not allowed us to enjoy superb Sundial on the ground that seems unique in its kind!
