Welcome to Bergamo

Visiting Bergamo means discovering a city and a territory of culture, art, architecture and tradition. The historic city, in its surprising morphology, is surrounded by Venetian walls (now a UNESCO Heritage site), guardian of streets, piazzas, palaces, alleys, extraordinary corners: from Piazza Vecchia to the Basilica and the Colleoni Chapel, from the Angelo Maj library to the Teatro Sociale, from Piazza Mascheroni to the old public wash house. A beauty that continues towards the museums, from Accademia Carrara to the modern and contemporary art gallery through walkways and panoramic strolls, passing through Borgo Santa Caterina, full of boutiques and shops, to reach Città Bassa.

How to reach us

Bergamo is a modern city with a fortified, historic heart and is surrounded by 4700 hectares of greenery. 
These strengths, combined with cultural and business practicalities (such as direct flights to major European cities from Bergamo’s Caravaggio Airport), make the city the perfect host for an event centring around landscaping.

Situated 2 km from the city centre, Orio al Serio Airport is serviced by a number of important Airlines. From the airport one may reach the centre of Bergamo by bus (Line number 1) – from Monday to Saturday, service operational from 6.04 to 0.28, leaving every 30 minutes. There are stops at Bergamo train station, at the funicular station (which connects the lower and upper towns) and the terminus is in Colle Aperto at the top of Città Alta (The Upper Town).

There are hourly trains from Milano to Bergamo. From Bergamo train station, bus line number 1 departs, stopping at the funicular station (which connects the lower and upper towns) and the terminus is in Colle Aperto at the top of Città Alta (The Upper Town).

A4 Motorway Milano-Venezia, exit at Bergamo. It is highly recommended to park in Città Bassa (the Lower Town) and reach the Upper Town either with public transport or by foot as Città Alta itself is largely pedestrianised and has limited paid parking.
