    Stop At: Cappella Colleoni, Near Santa Maria Maggiore, Bergamo Italy

    Dedicated to the saints Bartholomew, Mark and John the Baptist, it was built between 1472 and 1476 as the personal shrine for the condottiere Bartolomeo Colleoni, a member of one of the most outstanding families of the city, and his beloved daughter Medea. The site chosen was that of the sacristy of the nearby church of Santa Maria Maggiore, which was demolished by Colleoni's soldiers.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Piazza Vecchia, 24129 Bergamo Italy

    From downtown to the top of the hill where your guided walking tour will pass through Piazza Vecchia, the heart of the old town.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, Piazza Vecchia 6, 24129 Bergamo Italy

    The church was founded in 1137 on the site of another church from the 8th century dedicated to St Mary, which had been in turn erected over a Roman temple of the Clemence. The high altar was consecrated in 1185 and in 1187 the presbytery and the transept wings were completed. Due to financial troubles, the works dragged for the whole 13th–14th centuries. The bell tower was built from 1436 (being completed around the end of the century), while in 1481–1491 a new sacristy added after the old one had been destroyed by Bartolomeo Colleoni to erect his personal mausoleum, the Colleoni Chapel.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    This was a wonderful side trip from Milan. The presentation by our guide, Sara, made me fall in love with Bergamo. The history, food, and architecture well worth the short trip. The tour was fantastic but I would recommend staying a night or two. Once...More

    Tour guide Sara was the best guide we've had in years. A Bergamo native, her passion and love of her city enhanced our day in a quaint and fascinating city. Don't miss this trip.

    If it's around the Citi Alta then there is a lot of hills. It's a very old town with lots of cobbles and uneven paths
