This plaza is a remarkable icon for those involved in Theatre. Written up in the story The Tapestry of Pas De Deux, the historical characters from Bergamo are delightfully present if only in memory.

This is the main square in the Citta Alta. Obviously high in tourist footfall as its the heart of the city, but very laid back atmosphere. Couple of restaurants, and a gelateria, and some stunning scenery in the surrounding buildings. Very queut when we came through on the Sunday evening at 9pm. Had the place all to ourselves

Piazza vecchia is a great plaza for families and couples. It is great for aperitifs, lunch, and dinner. It is picturesque and near to 3 sights with tapestries and frescoes.

The main square of the upper city, Piazza Vecchia is surrounded by beautiful historic buildings - many of which feature the Venetian lion - and is very much the hub of Bergamo's older quarter with lots of cafes along its edges. It provides an essential stopping point during any exploration of the upper city.

Spending 3 nights Piazza Vecchia was authentic, cosy and incomparable convinces right in the heart of the Citta Alta Bergamo. Very easy to access from the train station in the lower city purchasing a bus ticket on the "A1 Citta Alta" bus just to the right in front of the station, travelling up to the walled city. The rooms are... More

Amazing square with lovely fountain in the middle and two amazing churches at on end with tower you can wander up for a better view. Some places to sit and chill, grab a beer, a meal, or an ice cream. Or just watch the street performers. Beautiful place.

The old Biblioteca, the cathedral the bell tower and duomo are stunning. The square is also flanked with lovely places to eat and drink, it's a place to forget time and lose yourself :-)
