Piazza Vecchia, Bergamo

4.8
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.

  • After graduating from the funicular and having borrowed a lane full of history and surrounded by shops we get on this splendid place flowery.

  • After a stroll through nice alleys you come to the square of the old town of Bergamo. Cosy restaurants, beautiful old buildings, attractive decoration. Totally worth it!
