Exploring historic Bergamo #inLombardia
is a historic city in the northern Italian region of Lombardy , situated about 40km northeast of Milan and at the foothills of the snow-capped peaks of the Bergamo Alps. The town is composed of two distinct parts: the medieval Citta Alta (or Upper Town) perched on a hill-top and surrounded by 16th century walls, and the Citta Bassa (or Lower Town). A funicular train, buses and footpaths connect both parts. It was my first time in Bergamo and after the first day, I was totally captivated by its beauty and charm. As I soon discovered, there are lots of things to do in Bergamo but simply strolling around this gorgeous city will make you fall for its charms in an instant.
