    Budget Option in Alta

    by

    This review is based on a visit to the B&B and not on any actual experience of staying at Botton D'Oro.

    Botton D'Oro is comprised of a number of room options which offer sleeping for 2 - 6 adults. Breakfast is self service within a neat breakfast room shared between the rooms.

    The entrance is unobtrusive and could easily be missed - look for the small name plaque on the blue doors.

    I look forward to an opportunity to return to Bergamo and stay at Botton D'Oro.

    Unique Quality: Botton D'Oro is located in an apartment block within Citta Alta, on the main thoroughfare (Via Colleoni) through the old town.

train travel

by MrsH77

Hi all, Me again!

With a week to go, we are wondering about prices, particularly re train travel (as this will probably be our most likely method of transport). Anyone got an idea/ examples of how much it costs.

Would especially be interested in costs from Airport to bergamo, and to the lakes.

Thanks again

Re: train travel

by mccalpin

I am assuming that by "airport", you mean "Orio al Serio" airprt near Bergamo?

Please see
http://www.sacbo.it/Editorial/newsCategoryViewProcess.jsp?editorialID=171
for information on buses to/from the airport.

In terms of train travel, please see www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html where you can find rail solutions and pricing (see my Transportation Tips on my Italy page for how to use this website and get pricing).

But there is also another rail service in the general area called Le Nord. This is the rail company that provides the only direct rail access from Malpensa Airport to the city center in Milan. Le Nord runs up to Como (to the city, not around the lake), and Lago Iseo, where it runs up the east side of the lake, I think.

Look at www.lenord.it for more info...

From Orio al Serio airport to Bergamo is a 15 minutes ride by bus and it costs less than 2 euro. Local trains are cheap (Milano-Bergamo about 4 euro); Intercity and Eurostar trains could be more expensive. Going to Northern lakes (which ones??) from Bergamo shouldn't be that expensive: from 10 to 20 euro, depending on the lake. What else? :-)

thank you both so much

Travel Tips for Bergamo

Know some language.

by JennysTravels

Ok OK....Ill admit it, after all these years traveling I still only speak one language. I found it ver difficult to communicate in Italy. I arrived late into the Milan bus station and I couldn't make heads or tails of where to buy a ticket to the hotel and where to get on the bus. Umbrellas dotted the twilight rain drenched street and every person I went up to in my poliet Canadian way did not speak an ouce of English. Ignorance on my part.

Learn some Italian!! It will help you.

the elusive castle

by call_me_rhia

The elusive castle is the castle that doesn't exist, on Colle San Vigilio. There's a bus going there - there's a marked path leading up there - but the castle is definitely not there. Ask anyone from Bergamo and they'll tell you so.
What's called a castle is nothing more than a few ruins and walls of a fortress that doesn't exist anymore. However the locaton is really scenic: there's greeat views over the surrounding hills and countryside, as well as over the Città Alta.

Parking legal in Città Alta

by irisbe

It is not really evident to go with your car into the Città Alta.
A lot of the streets are one direction streets, some exceptional two direction streets but then only for locals.
To save the city from too much unnecessary traffic, the legal parking spaces are really limited and some are only for locals. You need a residence card to park there.
When Caroline needed to drive back to Bergamo the day previous to her departure, she needed a place to park nearby the B&B. Enrica, the lady of the B&B lend her a residence parking card for that day. So her problem was solved.

As you can see on the picture, even the locals have problems finding a space to leave their cars and they often park them on places where it is not allowed.

a dining experience 3 hours long

by call_me_rhia about trattoria al castello

It's inside the elusive castle... in the sense that there are the castle walls but not the castle itself. So where the trattoria is, it's the building where - upstairs - there are the museum exhibitions. The restaurant has a nice garden terrace where you can eat, if it's warm, and the views over the Città Alta of Bergamo are stunning the antipasti (starters) are wonderful: a combination of local cold meats like salami and lard, and several types of polenta (grinded corn meal). The "casoncelli" are also delicious: they are a local type of tortellini filled with sausage.

Great Neapolitan Pizza

by barrikello about Amalfitano

Finding a good pizzeria in Bergamo is not easy. Even worse, finding the real Neapoli pizza is almost impossible. So, I tried this place which is located 15 kms far from the town in Calcinate village. And I found a very good pizza and - they say - wonderful seafood at affordable prices. Don't miss pizza with aubergines and Napoli pastries like Cassata and Pastiera
