Citta Alta – Bergamo, Italy

It is time to go to my final destination on my journey in visiting the Dolomites. I am taking a long bus drive from Cortina D’Ampezzo to Bergamo. On the way we had a stop in Verona, so I quickly ran into the city to buy one of the best pizzas I had so far in Italy.

Bergamo is famous for it’s upper district, Citta Alta a sixteen century medieval city, characterized by it’s paved narrow streets and home to the twelfth century tower, Campanone, the Basilica Santa Maria, both within the Piazza Vechia square.

Cita Alta is also the perfect place to have a beautiful view over the modern city of Bergamo. The top of the city is at minutes away from the citadel and easily accessible by the funicular.

Further exploring the citadel I stumbled upon this hidden small restaurant where I have ordered myself melon with prosciutto and it was the best meal and combination I ever had.

Everywhere you go, you find yourself going back in time with the help of the amazing Venetian walls and architecture.
