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.


Sample liberty style in Milan

There is so much to see in Milan that a day trip from Bergamo may not be enough. If you choose to spend a night in the city, it is important to book a hotel in a handy location to cut down on travelling time.
Hotel Ariosto
The elegant Magenta district with its art nouveau palaces, described as lo stile liberty in Italian, is a good choice if you plan to see Il Cenacolo (The Last Supper), by Leonardo da Vinci or the impressive Castello Sforzesco. 
The Hotel Ariosto in Via Ariosto is housed in a liberty style building (pictured) that has been completely renovated to provide modern comforts.
The hotel is only 200 metres from the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie where Leonardo painted his largest and most famous work in the convent of the refectory. Booking in advance is essential if you wish to see the painting.
The Hotel Ariosto in the Magenta district is a ten minute walk from the Castello Sforzesco and is also close to the Cadorna railway station, a metro and a tram stop and the Corso Vercelli shopping area.
The rooms  look out either over an inner courtyard or at the decorative facades of the palaces opposite in the Via Ariosto. All have satellite television and wi-fi connections and guests have the choice of either a room service breakfast or the buffet breakfast served in the restaurant.
