Bergamo’s beautiful upper town, the Città Alta (pictured above), is a magical place well worth visiting. Use this website to help you plan your trip to Bergamo in Northern Italy and find your way to some of the other lovely towns and villages in Lombardia that are perhaps less well known to tourists.


Taste the best wines in historic setting

Vineria Cozzi's well-stocked bar
If you want to try a traditional Bergamo wine bar visit the Vineria Cozzi on the Via Colleoni in the Città Alta (upper town.)
Behind the red door it is a paradise for wine lovers and there is also a restaurant and courtyard with tables, offering a lunch and dinner menu that provides the opportunity to taste local delicacies. 

Tasty snacks accompany your wine
Vineria Cozzi, the well-stocked bar of which is pictured above, has been a meeting place for Bergamo people since 1848 and still has its original furniture. But the selection of wines in the cellar is renewed constantly and the dishes on offer change regularly to enable the bar to keep tempting both its regular customers and visitors to Bergamo.
Although all the great traditional Italian wines, such as Amarone, Barolo and Chianti are represented on the wine list, you can also sample wines produced in Lombardia and the rest of Italy that are perhaps less known, but are among the best available at any given time. Even if you order only a glass of wine, you will be offered a small portion of a tempting dish free of charge to accompany it. The examples illustrated here - polenta with parmesan crisp, polenta with herbs and anchovies and a vegetable mousse - are typical.
The owners of Vineria Cozzi take pride in offering clients only the wine and food that they believe in themselves, at a fair price that has not been inflated by reputation. They encourage customers to browse among the shelves and choose their own wine.
The Vineria Cozzi can be found at Number 22 Via Colleoni. It is on the right hand side of the street as you walk down from Piazza Mascheroni in the direction of Piazza Vecchia. It is open every day except Wednesday.
