This is the centre of the town. And this is where most of the attractions are based. Charming old worldly square

After the visit to the cathedral, this plaza is an open space with some restaurants. A good pizza and gelato place is here. A good place to rest and see the water fountain.

Piazza Vecchia is exactly what you picture when you picture an Italian piazza. Lots of locals and tourists wandering around, quaint cafes lining the sides, and the large church at one end. Nice to visit if you are in Bergamo.

We had heard a lot about the beauty of Piazza Vecchia. It was a little bit disappointing, but still very nice.

This is a marvellous square with a fountain in the centre flanked by stone lions. Lots of cafes and restaurants around it where you can people watch. Sometimes jugglers and street entertainment

Nice plaza surrounded by buildings created as early as the1700’s. Good place to sit and people watch while nursing a drink. Pretty little fountain.

Visited here both day and night. This is the main square in the upper town. Lots of places to eat and drink and reasonably priced. Pretty at night all lit up.
