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.


Elegant hotel on the shore of Lago d’Iseo

Monte Isola in Lago d'Iseo
If you would like close up views of Monte Isola, the stunning island in the middle of Lago d’Iseo - just a short distance from Bergamo - visit the resort of Sulzano on the Brescia side of the lake.
If you are not driving, the best way to reach Sulzano is to take the train from Bergamo to Brescia and then change to the train that runs along the side of the lake in the direction of Edolo. It will pass through the resort of Iseo before it reaches Sulzano.
It is a short walk from the railway station in Sulzano to the landing stage, or imbarcadero, where you can buy boat tickets to visit the island and pick up tourism information leaflets. The green mountainous island almost looks almost within touching distance from here. It takes only a few minutes on the ferry to reach the nearest point on Monte Isola, the old fishing village of Peschiera Maraglio.

Sulzano is an ideal location for a short break as it has shops, bars and amenities and is set in beautiful scenery, as well as being handily placed for visiting the island.
Consider a stay at the Hotel Rivalago in Via Cadorna, which is right on the edge of the lake.
This elegant four star hotel has a beautiful garden which runs down to the shore and a lakeside swimming pool with a bar at the side. The 32 guest rooms all have wireless internet and some have balconies overlooking Lago d’Iseo with lovely views of Monte Isola.
The Hotel Rivalago also has its own private beach for the use of guests who wish to swim in the lake.
