We ended up in Bergamo by accident as our flight to Pantelleria went out of there, but instead of heading straight to the airport, we spent an afternoon and a night walking around the Città Alta – the old town up on a hill – eating local food and having drinks on the cities squares. I also loved that the place was not overrun by tourists!
While we spent less than 24 hours Bergamo, I feel like we got a glimpse into what is a beautiful city. It’s close to Milan. So, it is perfect for a day trip, too.
