Bergamo is a charming town in Western Lombardy. The city has two distinctive parts, the Città Alta (Upper City) and the Città Bassa (Lower City), the modern centre of Bergamo. The two parts are connected with a funicular. The Città Alta is the historic heart of the town and shows traces of its medieval civilisation. Small steep streets lead you delightful places such as the Piazza Vecchia with its Renaissance buildings and the beautiful, impressive Duomo!
