When you arrive in Bergamo, you will meet your guide at the Funicolare, the cable railway station. Your tour will focus on the Upper town, which is where the medieval city centre is. Once arrived you will visit Piazza Vecchia, the main square of Bergamo, then you will go up the Campanone, the bell tower, from where you can admire Lower Bergamo. Next you will go visit the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, of Romanesque era, and decorated with the extravagance of the Baroque style.
