In the heart of upper Bergamo and facing one of the nicest architectural monuments in town, S. Francesco cloister, still protected from the noise of the main street. Two minutes away from the funicular and the enchanting Piazza Vecchia, it is in a strategic position to reach the places of historical and architectural interest such as the Teatro Sociale, Piazza Vecchia and the Palazzo della Ragione, and St. Augustin church , to name but a few.
You will be lodged in a mansion house dating back to the XIV and XVI centuries. Walking through a marvellous old original wooden gate, you will gain access to the privacy of an interior courtyard with a portico, a central well, a wrought iron balcony and a blown glass door. The palace has belonged for generations to one family that take pains and devote resources to the upkeep of the building. A marvellous stately stairway of stone and wrought iron, ceiling fresco, period furniture, a beam ceilings and an unparalleled view over S. Vigilio Hill.
This apartment is absolutely perfect and fully deserves a five star rating. It is a large and very comfortable apartment with a full kitchen including a washing machine and dishwasher. The view from the bedroom window over the rooftops is mesmerizing. It is a cool, quiet oasis in the middle of town. Bergamo itself is one of the most picturesque towns in Northern Italy with some great restaurants and shops. We spent four days here and were sad to leave. Allesendra is a joy to meet with an infectious laugh and nothing is too much trouble for her guests.
This flat is perfect for visiting Bergamo and the interesting towns nearby. It has everything you need in a very comfortable setting and great location. The view from the upstairs terrace is not to be missed. Best of all, the owner is very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
We had a wonderful time. Excellent location, very quiet but so central and convenient. Alessandra extremely helpful and friendly. Extremely comfortable flat, everything that was needed was provided. Thank you for a wonderful time. Lynn and dave.
Wir mieten häufig Ferienwohnungen, diese bekommt sehr gute Noten: Geräumig, geschmackvoll und praktisch eingerichtet, ruhig gelegen mit schöner Aussicht, aber Läden der Città Alta ganz nahe, ebenso der Funicolare, der die Verbindung macht mit dem Bahnhofbus. Signora Alessandra ist sehr zuvorkommend und nett. Werden diese Wohnung wieder mieten.
Spacious, elegant and practical flat with a nice view, situated in a quiet area, but near shops of Città Alta and near Funicolare that connects to bus and railway station. Signora Alessandra is very nice and helpful. Will rent this flat again.

Location is perfect; it is relatively secluded and yet it is only 300 meters from the main street where all the shops, restaurants, and piazza's are found. Landlord was extremely helpful; speaks excellent English, French, and Italien of course. Staying in Bergamo Alta is the best way to experience the city. Day trips by train to other cities are easy to get to as a bus goes directly to the station (about a 5 minute ride).
The apartment is located ideally in the Città Alta with all the places of interest in walking distance. It is very comfortable with a large sitting room and a large bedroom, ideal for one or two travelers. Full of antiques and equipped with everything you might need. The rooftop terrace provides a fantastic view over the town into the Alpi Orobie.
The hosts are lovely, and as they live in the palazzo as well, they are around and very willing to help if you need some information or accessory (once again I had forgotten to pack a plug adaptor and Alessandra provided one within seconds). Last but not least they are very dog-friendly and warmly welcomed our pet.
The province of Bergamo will amaze you for its variety. Renowned for Città Alta – the Upper City – one of Lombardy's most fascinating locations, it is rich with history and culture, all the while surrounded by the Bergamo Alps, gentle hills and crystalline lakes.
The Upper City is an enchanting medieval town, enclosed in intact 16th century Venetian walls, all cradled within the refreshingly green setting of the Park of the Hills. On foot you will discover not only magnificent monuments, but quaint cobblestone lanes winding past centuries-old houses. The ancient city spreads out into characteristic burgs in the lower and dynamic city with its smart shops, museums and the Donizetti theatre.
Lake Iseo, of glacial origin, is one of Lombardy's most beautiful lakes where you will find Europe's largest lake island. The lake teems with trout and pike, while its shores produce a superb olive oil.
