Bergamo was AMAZING! I would say out of all the tours I took in Milan and surrounding areas that Bergamo was my favorite. This town in fascinating because you can see Veronian, Roman, and other styles all in one central area. The side streets are lined with houses and buildings and it is just a very nice short tour. I would have loved to have gone back and toured on my own! The one downfall is there was not enough time to eat a meal there and have a local dish!
