Cittą Alta, Bergamo: 27 reviews and 55 photos
Favorite thing: Bergamo is set between hills and valleys, and has two distinct urban centres. Bergamo Alta (High Bergamo, on a hill located at 365 metres a/s/l) is the oldest of the two - it's also where the historical old quarters are, stands on a hill (365 m.) . Bergamo Bassa (Low Bergamo, located at 249 metres a/s/l) is in the plains, and it's the modern industrial and commercial centre of the city.
Fondest memory: The people. Bergamo is so near Milan (about an hour) yet culturally so far. It may as well be a city, but the inhabitants are for sure not city-dwellers: their mentality is still provincial", in the better meaning of the term - they are friendly, genuine, and reserved. Stubborn too, at times.
