Bergamo Off The Beaten Path: 84 reviews and 234 photos
I wandered around S Catarina whilst researching potential restaurants. I wasn't expecting much of interest (although the woman at the tourist Office has told me it was 'a nice area') and so was pleasantly surprised.
I started by following the Via Della Noca, a cobbled and gently stepped 'scaletta' leading dwon from Porta Sant Agostino. From there I followed the Via Borgo Santa Catarina.
Again, it is a living neighbourhood with ordinary shops, lots of small cafes and restaurants and bars, lots of ordinary people living ordinary lives.
And, in the parts nearest to the Citta Alta, yet again evidence of the past. Perhaps not as many Medieval buildings as in Pignolo and Canale, but there were some...and there were many more of interest from the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s.
I didn't find the suitable restaurant I was seeking but I did enjoy my wanderings. It's a part of Bergamo Bassa to which I will return; I spotted some interesting small restaurants in the area! :-)
