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.


Enjoy a taste of Crema

Piazza Duomo in Crema
While you are staying in Bergamo you may decide to visit the historic city of Crema, just 40 kilometres to the south.
You may wish to spend a night or two in Crema if you feel a day trip is not long enough to see all the fine architecture and art treasures that the city has to offer.
It is important to choose a hotel in a handy location so that you can make the most of your sightseeing time and experience the atmosphere of the historic centre at night.
One hotel within walking distance of the centre of town is the four star Park Hotel Residence. Situated in Via IV Novembre, on the eastern side of the city, it is a 10 or 15-minute walk away from Piazza Duomo, which is at the heart of the city.
If you are travelling to Crema by car, the Park Hotel Residence is worth considering as it has the advantage of a large car park. The railway station is about one kilometre away.
All rooms have air conditioning, minibar, satellite television and internet access.

Another four star hotel within similar walking distance of the historic centre is the Hotel Palace in Via Cresmiero, on the western side of the city.
This is close to Via delle Grazie, where there is the 17th century church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, built to house an ancient painting of the Madonna.
All the Hotel Palace’s 45 rooms have air conditioning, satellite television and a mini bar and the hotel restaurant offers dinner at a discounted rate to guests. For more information, visit www.hotelpalacecrema.com.
