Brighten up your February with a romantic break in Bergamo.
|Romantic Città Alta
For romance and atmosphere you need look no further than Bergamo’s Città Alta (upper town) with its medieval buildings and cosy bars and restaurants.
You could try Hotel Piazza Vecchia, which is centrally located in a 13th-century house in Via Colleoni, just off the beautiful Piazza Vecchia. Many original features have been preserved but the hotel has a contemporary décor and bathrooms with all the latest comforts. Or you could consider GombitHotel next to the 13th century Gombito Tower, which is handy for the the main sights, the shops, bars, restaurants and funicular.
If you would like to wake up to magical views of the Città Alta from your bedroom window, why not stay at the sophisticated Hotel Excelsior San Marco, which is close to the funicular for the Città Alta, but only walking distance from the main shops and restaurants in the Città Bassa (lower town).
Or if you would like to be right at the hub of the Città Bassa, close to Porta Nuova and the stylish Via Sentierone, consider the elegant Hotel Cappello d’Oro in Viale Papa Giovanni XXIII.
While you are there, sample some Bergamo specialities in the restaurants, such as casoncelli alla bergamasca and polenta taragna. Then sip some of the delicious local Valcalepio wine and the winter blues will soon be a thing of the past.
