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).
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.
