It 'consists of a large and bright living area furnished with some furniture in the local tradition as well as a comfortable sofa bed.

We arrived in Bergamo not knowing what to expect and we were delighted to be greeted with great kindness by Rafaella who showed us the apartment . The studio had a large bathroom on left the shower was excellent hot and powerful . The kitchen was well equipped with large fridge ,cooker ,sink ,toaster and electric oven , perfect for having breakfast , lunch or even dinner but with so many choices in the evening dining out is a must . The apartment is up one flight of steps very secure . There are two large windows with balconies perfect to watch the busy street below. Ideally located to visit Bergamo and 15 min walk to train station to hop to lake como or milan we did both it was lovely. Lots of shopping in Bergamo also best pizza in citta bassa is on via d'orsola just 5 mins from apartment as is the nearest supermarket . Highly recommend this studio for couple just bring earplugs if you want to leave windows open as street busy. This was only negative .
We spent a bit more than a week at the apartment, and overall were very happy with it. The size is just right for one or two persons, and the kitchen facilities give you the option to prepare your own meals, if you want to. The location is very convenient, just a short walk to the center of Bergamo. While there, check out Gelateria La Romana, Via G. Tiraboschi, 42,, just about a five minute walk.
While the section of Via San Bernardino is closed to through traffic, there still is plenty of Italian street life, including motor scooters, buses, garbage collection, street cleaning, and all of this until late in the evening. There are also a couple of fast food places next door, leading to very animated discussions on the sidewalk. Fortunately the noise insulation of the windows is excellent, and with the windows closed, almost all of the noise stays outside.
Elisabetta and her team were very responsive to our inquiries, and made us feel very welcome in the apartment.
The studio was described accurately and exchange of the keys was very easy. There is plenty of room for two people and the studio is fully equipped with everything you need for cooking and laundry. The bath is large and nicely equipped. You have everything you need within walking distance with large and small grocery stores, bars, restaurants & shops. It's easy to walk into the walled upper city of Bergamo from the studio. Parking is sometimes tricky but we were able to get a yellow parking place right in front of the studio 6 of the 7 nights we were there. The 7th night we had to park on the next street over which was not a problem. You sometimes had to circle the block a few times to get a spot.
The only negative about the apartment is the noise. You are located on an extremely busy one way street with a lot of very noisy traffic. You are also right next door to a little restaurant where lots of people stand around and talk...very loud and sometimes very late. Unfortunately on our last night the very late lasted until almost 4AM. But, the price for the apartment is very good. If you are used to city noise you will probably not have a problem. If you are used to quiet you might want earplugs or plan on playing some music or something to drown out the street noise.
There was everything you need for holiday. Washing machine was very good, because we came by Ryanair and there are limitation of your backage.This flat was very nice and cosy. We could make food , and everything was near, shops, busstation, railwaystation and airport. Our hostess Raffaella was was friendly and everything was ok.
I can recommend this flat to all the travellers. We are thinking to come again. Thank you Raffaella and Elisabetta.

We stayed at the apartment for a week and had a fantastic stay. Elisabetta was professional, and communication with her was easy. She is also very friendly and helpful, it was a pleasure dealing with her. We found the apartment exactly as pictured - very nice!. The location couldn´t be better. We walked everywhere, and found really nice bars, cafes and restaurants within a 5-minute walk from the apartment. Highly recommended!

'The balconies' are in Bergamo Bassa, just steps away from the busiest shopping streets. Pleasant to walk these streets and lanes, watch windows, sit in one of the many bars and enjoy a good espresso or an ice-cream. From the you can reach the Upper City with an easy walk or bus or the funicular typical. In Upper Town you can visit the major points of historical and cultural interest: the Cathedral, Piazza Vecchia, the Colleoni Chapel, the Rock, the Walls. Being in the center of the Turin-Venice, you can easily reach these two cities in about two hours. Milan, Verona, Lake Garda, Como, Iseo and Idro are about an hour away. By train or car in a few hours you can also visit cities such as Bologna, Genoa and over the nearby Switzerland.
