A walk towards the Colle Aperto
It is a pleasure to walk through the small walking street of Via B. Colleoni.
If you walk this street to the West, you will pass the Piazza L. Mascheroni, then the Piazza Citadella (with some museum and the police station)
Then through a little gate you can take a small deviation through the little park (public garden) and finally end up at the Colle Aperto.
This is the place where you can take the bus to the staion and the airport.
Sagrestie di alzano
It's the ancient vestry of the church af this village called alzano. It's full of works of art like paintings and sculptures. I think you should visit it with a guide who will explain all the symbols and the story of this beautiful place. Remember it's quite cold inside!
The best way to go from/to the airport to/from the city is by bus. It takes around 15 minutes and has stops at the railway station, funicolare and upper city.
Tickets can be bought at the Tourist Office at the airport and kiosks (1,70 Euros, Aug. '09).
Eating before the football-game
It’s a bit strange, that a classic club as Atalanta isn’t bigger on the souvenir- or food-market. Because nor food is simple to find around the stadium. You can buy café, the, chocholat, snacks inside the stadium, and there is an ice-cream bar outside the stadium, and also a small café-shop. But that’s it.
Food or a drink with a view!
This cafe is worth visiting for its ambiance, food and views!
During my short visit it wasn't always open. I seem to remember seeing it open on the Saturday afternoon/early evening, but it was closed later, and all day Sunday.
Monday morning, I was pleased to see it open as I hadn't had breakfast.
I chose a seat on the open air terrace, then went to the bar counter to order a coffee. There was a tempting selection of pastries, tarts etc. I selected a tart, which I think was made of polenta- a local delicacy.
When the waiter brought it to my table, he was pleased to see my reaction- a lovely presented slice of tart, with drizzles of jam, and a strawberry and apple decoration, all dusted lightly with icing sugar. Bueno? he said - Bueno I replied!
While I tucked into this delicious fodder, the sun came out, illuminating the town below.
It was interesting to see the funicular carriages winding up and down the slope in front of me. The coffee (1.50 euros) and tart (4 euros)were delicious - hopefully I'll return one day and enjoy a full meal.
Well presented, tasty food, in an attractive cafe with a nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and great views.
