Tour description

 Do you want to have the main information to start your visit in Bergamo together with a local? This is the tour for you!

I will show you the main streets of the "Upper City" (Città Alta), tell you some personal anecdotes related to the city, and provide you with all the elements to visit the most important monuments on your own!

But not only that: we will also talk about food! I was born and raised in Bergamo so I can recommend the best local restaurants, ice creams, cafes, and more!

And it doesn't end here: at the end of the tour you will have my personal list of the best things to do in Bergamo, tips on the best museums, info on tickets and opening time so you will enjoy everything about my lovely city!

This was excellent, 1st time in bergamo , just landed and didn't know anything about the city. Matteo was an excellent communicator leading up to the tour and helped finding a parking spot. The tour was perfect, highlighted the best spots to visit and to eat. Basically sorted out our itinerary for the few days we were in Town. Also got to ask about local local rules/guidelines, How to pay for parking what times things closed. Best times to visit how to get to Milan. What did the locals do/eat? 100% recommend.
