You can wander around yourself and see the buildings that are being restored and a small display about the restoration works. But it isn't really well developed as a tourist attraction. Check the opening hours if you are out of season.

For three days Astino’s Valley, one of my favourite places in Bergamo for its natural beauty, will be the stage of a gastronomic event. It is called “Astino nel Gusto”. The former Monastery will trasform itself into the town of culinary delights, where food and...More

Visited the monastero last week and loved it. At night time in the summer there is a great ambience due to the outdoor pop-up restaurants- serving great pizzas and a few other lovely dishes! Drinks were also of a very good quality. The monastery itself...More

I've rated this a 3 as we didn't actually get to see anything with it being closed but we had a super walk to get there which is worthy recommending. Leave La Citta Alta by the Sant'Allesandro Gate (where the funicular leaves to go up...More
