Visit one of the undiscovered gems of Italy, Bergamo, with its historic and graceful “Città Alta” perched aloft with stunning views of the Alps and the deep valleys, described as the prettiest open-air museum in the world!
A visit to this sophisticated and stunning small town shall not be missed, as it contains no building newer than the XVII century. Let our professional guide take you on an enlightening walking tour through the cobbled streets of the historic center, where imposing Medieval towers stand, surrounded by an enchanting landscape.

This amazing excursion starts from the picture-postcard, historic village of Varenna, located on the Eastern shore of Lake Como, having crossed by ferry or boat.
Then, hop on our coach that will take you along the scenic Eastern shore of the lake to the town of Lecco and on past mountain scenery to Bergamo. Enjoy some free time at your leisure during the morning, maybe having lunch in one of the traditional restaurants of the historic center.
Meet your local guide in the afternoon and let him unveil every secret corner of this suggestive, Medieval gem: you will admire the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the greatest churches in Northern Italy, and the Chapel of the Great Condottiere, Bartolomeo Colleoni, which adjoins it.
