Bergamo holidays 2021

Whether you’re looking for the right destination for a romantic couples’ break or a family summer holiday in Italy, the picturesque city of Bergamo has historic monuments, exciting attractions and breath-taking surroundings that will take your 2021 holiday to the next level. Bergamo is famous for its two-level layout, with a modern lower part and a more traditional, walled upper area that sits atop a hill. The top part is known as Bergamo Alta, and the lower part as Bergamo Bassa. The city centre is located in the region of Lombardy and is a UNESCO protected World Heritage Site, as well as one of north Italy’s most captivating cities. With winding medieval alleyways, Venetian fortifications, trendy little cafes and picturesque Gothic churches, the citta alta offers a serene mountain haven that seems to stand still in time. Owing to the city’s main attractions being located in close proximity to each other, a holiday in Bergamo in 2021 could be the perfect European city break for you.

Top attractions

The mesmerising Piazza Vecchia is located in the upper part of Bergamo and is a must-visit for any visitor. This historical part of the city acted as a travel hub in Italy and features a variety of scenic little cafes, traditional Italian buildings and a selection of architectural delights. One of these is the grand civic library, while the Palazzo della Ragione is one of the best-loved pieces of Venetian Gothic architecture. Nearby at the Neo-Classical Accademia Carrara, you can enjoy more than 1800 works of art mainly from the Tuscan, Flemish, Venetian and Lombardi schools of art, with the Gallery of Modern Art just a few steps away. Other top attractions in Bergamo include the Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the primary examples of Romanesque architecture with Gothic design elements. Inside, the décor is from the Baroque period and showcases some of the finest marble and stucco decorations in the area, as well as Flemish tapestries from the 16th and 17th centuries. Art history lovers will be dazzled by all that Bergamo has to offer.

Beaches

Beaches

While there are no large beaches in Bergamo or the surrounding area, there are several beautiful lakes and rivers with little beaches well worth visiting during your holiday in Bergamo. One of the hidden gems of the Cavallina Valley, Lake Endine, is an ideal place to visit for those who prefer a laid-back and tranquil holiday experience. While Lake Endine is very popular with both tourists and locals during the summer months, its shores are never overly crowded, offering a peaceful atmosphere which is great for unwinding. Nearby you’ll find tiny villages, a handful of beaches lined with trees and nooks of untamed countryside, as well as quaint little bars and restaurants to get a bite to eat. Around half an hour’s drive from Bergamo, you’ll find Lake Iseo, a gem nestled between scenic villages and tree-lined mountains. Lake Iseo can be enjoyed by boat excursion or by taking a long walk around the edge, stopping along the way to sample the delicious local cuisine and sip the best locally-produced wines.
