The building, in which the apartment is included, is in the shape of an equilateral triangle of 70 m on each side (hence the name by which it is known in Bergamo) and contains a very large garden, equipped for children with lawns and walkways with benches . From the terrace, where you can have your meals, you can enjoy a wonderful view of Città Alta (the Upper City) both during the day (especially at sunset) and at night when the churches and medieval buildings are all lit. From the garage, located in the second basement, you can go, by the elevator, directly to the apartment, without encountering a single step. If the apartment is kept properly ventilated, it remains is quite cool, even in summer, and rarely the air conditioner is needed to be turned on. The streets around the Triangle have lanes for pedestrians and, moreover, they are at limited traffic; therefore, they allow you to easily walk out with children both for walking in the vicinity either to reach the center and its 'movida', its bars, ice cream parlors, cinemas and shops. By bus you can easily reach the Città Alta and its walls, its monuments and its refined and famous restaurants.
THE ADVICE OF THE OWNER
Bergamo is at the same time, a beautiful medieval city, la Citta Alta (the Upper Town ) and a nice, but not frenzied, modern city, la Città Bassa (the Lower Town) whose center dates mainly from the last three centuries. You can quickly walk across the city by foot and this makes it very livable, because everything is close at hand: shops and department stores, cultural centers, cinemas, theaters and art galleries. Already from your first inquiry about the apartment will be sent by e-mail, two booklets entitled 'Useful numbers and places of interest in Bergamo' and 'Description of and instructions for use.' In the first booklet you can find maps of the center of Bergamo as well as of Città Alta and of the surrounding areas. In these maps, properly numbered, are shown the shops and trattorias in the vicinity of the apartment and the most interesting places of the city.
In the second booklet, will be particularly useful the part relating to utilities (electricity, gas, water, telephone and wi-fi) because, if necessary, you will know how to intervene to return the light, a stop loss of water or the gas supply.
