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.


Bed and Breakfast Accademia is close to Città Alta

When choosing a hotel for a short stay in Bergamo, location is important so that you do not have to waste precious time travelling.
If you want to be close to many of the ‘must see’ sights, but stay in a quiet area, consider the Bed and Breakfast Accademia
This small Bergamo B & B is in the quiet cul de sac of Via Francesco Baracca off Via Nazario Sauro.
It is close to Piazza Cararra, where the famous Pinacoteca dell’Accademia Cararra and Galleria d’Arte Moderna are situated.
Although Accademia Cararra is currently closed for restoration, some of its masterpieces can be viewed in a special exhibition on the top floor of Palazzo della Ragione in the Città Alta (upper town).
Check prices and availability at:
From B & B Accademia it is a short walk to Porta Sant’Agostino, which leads into the Città Alta.
Or you could walk down Via Pignolo into the heart of the Città Bassa (lower town) and see masterpieces by Lorenzo Lotto in the churches of San Bernardino, Santo Spirito and San Bartolomeo on the way.
The B & B Accademia has a smart, modern décor and all rooms have free wi-fi and televisions with satellite channels.
A continental breakfast is included in the price and there is free parking for guests.
