  • A hidden gem that many travelers who fly to Bergamo get lost. Essential. It's very well preserved.

  • The property is full of corners to visit: from Donizetti's tomb to the spectacular altar. It is to be visited absolutely

  • I was impressed by the inside. Bergamo Alta and it's museums are highly recommendable. I love it!
  • It was beautiful to see the catedral at night. Personally I could appreciate better the architecture with its light.
