Città dei Mille" or "City of the Thousand", these are the other ways as to referring to the city of Bergamo. Situated in Lombardy, Italy, the city is about 25 miles northeast of Milan and 19 miles from the lakes Como and Iseo, not to mention that the foothills of the Bergamo Alps begin immediately north of the town. This city preserved his historical sites very well, despite the destruction brought by the World War II and the urbanization. The old and the new of this world combine into one holiday destination, and that is the city of Bergamo.
You must not miss the Upper City of Bergamo (Citta Alta)! Just rent a car and drive towards it, you will be surprised not only by the amazing views, but to get the chance of seeing the medieval town around which modern city of Bergamo has expanded is unique. As this is the main touristic area here, combination of old buildings and the restaurants, shops and cafes will amaze you. If you get tired of visiting the old city, you can always go for a drive to the city wall, or the Cinta Muraria, how the locals call them. Here you will have the opportunity to see the most beautiful sights of the Lower City.

When driving there, it is recommended to take the time to visit the cute little city of Como, that is right off the lake. This like is one of the biggest attractions in the area, being able to offer you the greatest sightseeing possible. Once Como is explored, you can take a 40 minutes drive to Bellagio, one of the first internationally-known tourist resorts in Italy, often called "The Pearl of the Lake". The possibilities here are endless, you can either drive to the southern leg of Como, and then back on the other side of the leg, or choose to take your car on the ferry from Bellagio to Varenna.
Going further into exploring the not so famous, but historically rich sights of Italy can go on, since the lovely village of Bellano is about five minutes drive from Varenna.
