Milan Gay Tours offers these tours for those who have a free extra day in town and want to discover some less renowned jewels of beautiful Italy: Bergamo and San Pellegrino Terme.

Bergamo has two centres: “Città alta” (upper city) and the “Città bassa” (lower city). The two parts of the town are connected by funicular/cable car, roads, and foot-paths.

Bergamo alta is a wonderful medieval town on the top of a hill surrounded by ramparts built in the Renaissance. Its centre hosts countless small treasures of art such as many works by the Renaissance painter Lorenzo Lotto  (one of his paintings is famous for… the angels’ buttocks!).

In the “Città bassa” (lower city) you can visit the city picture gallery Accademia Carrara, a venue you shouldn’t miss. There you will admire a rich display of important pantings from the middle ages to the 1800s including Raffaello, Bellini, Mantegna, Canaletto.

You’ll also discover the astonishing male figures by Moroni, so experiencing the standard of male elegance and beauty in the late Renaissance.

Bergamo is also the homeland of opera composer Gaetano Donizetti, famous for Lucia di Lammermoor, Maria Stuarda, L’elisir d’amore and many more.

In an extended tour or as a separate half day trip, you may also select to discover San Pellegrino Terme, a charming village in a valley around Bergamo, where not only will you find the San Pellegrino water springs (famous for its renowned sparkling water), but also the incredible Art Nouveau casino, built during the Belle Époque (1920s), when the cream of the crop of European society used to gather.
