Piazza Vecchia, Bergamo

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
