Dolomites, Lakes, or Cinque Terre at Christmas in Italy?

by song99

Dolomites, Lakes, or Cinque Terre at Christmas in Italy?

I don't know where to spend the Holidays in Italy? On December 16, I have to leave Bergamo, and I can go one of three directions, all leading to different parts of Italy. Eventually I will see most of it, but it's where to go first, and specifically where to go during late December I'm concerned with.

After Bergamo, I can head

1) South to the Liguria coast, Cinque Terre, and up to Genoa
2) East to Brescia, Lake Garda, and up the Dolomite Alps to Trentino/Alto Adige, and on to Belluno before turning around (note: I don't like skiing, thought I love scenic photography)
3) West to Lecco, Como, Maggiore lake district

There you have it, three clear options. So where would you go first, and why? Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Note: The two destinations that don't get picked will be seen in January.

Re: Dolomites, Lakes, or Cinque Terre at Christmas in Italy?

by Maryimelda

If you're going to see them all by the end of January, it really doesn't matter where you go first does it? Given a choice I think I would opt for the Cinque Terre only because it is a part of Italy I have yet to see and would very much like to see. Then again all the lake areas (Como, Garda, Maggiore) are stunningly beautiful. I have crossed the Dolomites in summer and they were fabulous as well (probably even better in winter). Let's hope some of the locals come online and maybe help you to choose by taking the weather into consideration. All in all I think you are in a win, win, win situation. Enjoy!

by GHIRO

Hi,
I would visit 5Terre and Liguria before or during Xmas holiday because after the first week of january will be very low season and most of the shops and restaurant will be closed and could be difficult to find an accomodation, while in Dolomities the tourist season continues also in January and go on.
5Terre is the place for who loves scenic photography, you will love it.
I don't like lakes in particular during winter season... but this is my personal opinion!

Travel Tips for Bergamo

Well, Citta Alta is the key!...

by oja

Well, Citta Alta is the key! Take the cable car up there (or walk, it won't harm you!), and keep your eyes peeled for gems as soon as you step out. Head for Piazza Vecchia (the unmissable Central Square) with what could be called 'sightseeing corner' where this splendid clocktower overlooks a church, a cathedral, and a baptistry all packed together. Perhaps the architects thought of lazy or time-pressed people when making this in-a-nutshell core, because you literally need but a minute to give it all a quick look and say you've seen the greatest sights of Bergamo. But that's far from being all! The Colombina - Papageno trail with you guys. I miss you.

Visit a UNESCO Site locals have not heard about

by geordieontour

Crespi" is the name of a family of cotton manufacturers from Lombardy. This family realized an "ideal workers' village" nearby their factory, along the Adda river.
The Village of Crespi d'Adda is an entire town, built from nothing by the owner of the factory for his workers and their families.
In this perfect little world the master "reigned" from his castle and, like a caring father, satisfied all needs of his employees.
Only those who worked in the factory could live in the Village, and the life of everybody was connected to the factory, its rhythms and its dema

Take the local bus Z or Z10 from the main bus station gate 2 cost 4 euros return
takes around a hour stopping at local villages.
If on the Z bus ask to be put off at the traffic lights in Capriate and walk by following signs for 20 minutes.

Well worth a day out just to see and enjoy the peace and quiet

Getting to Bergamo from Orio al Serio

by Ekaterinburg

I went straight to the Orio al Serio airport from Milan, dropped off my lugage and then, unencumbered , caught the bus into Bergamo. Finding where to buy the bus ticket was a little confusing so finally I went into the Tourist office at the airport and they sold me an all -in-one ticket. This ticket costs EUR 3.50 and is excellent value. It covers the bus to and from the aiport to Bergamo, as well as the funicular train which you must take to reach the Citta Alta. It stops at the railway station in Bergamo, passes through the Citta Bassa and eventually, drops you off, right at the Funicular stop. This makes the trip remarkably uncomplicated and easy.

Important to remember that you CAN'T buy this ticket on the bus, you must buy it before you leave the airport and validate it when you get on the bus. The same ticket then does you for the rest of the day.

The details below are for the tourist office at Orio al Serio, where I bought my ticket.

Fancy a typical "trattoria" with a bit of charme?

by barrikello about La Taverna dei Ghiottoni

This high level trattoria is one of my favourite restaurants in town. It has a rustic ambience combined with a professional service and an updated cuisine. Located in the modern town, just at the bottom of Via Pignolo, the old merchants' street, it offers excellent food belonging to the Lombardy tradition rather than to the Bergamo one. Don't get surprised if you don't get a list: this place is after all a "osteria" and you choose from what the waiter suggests you. MOreover, they have a wide choice of excellent wines. Don't miss the "risotto con le pere" - rice with pears - and the "Ravioloni con la zucca" - squared pasta stuffed with pumpkin.
A must for every guest is the "Tagliere di antipasti" - woodden dish covered with starters - that is served at the beginning.

Very casual and inexpensive

by Paisleypaul about Pasti Frulli Geleria

Very informal cafe which seems to serve food all afternoon, pasta and panini and gelati rather than a full menu. We had delcious crepes in here one afternoon when we decided we were too late for lunch and too close to dinner to eat 2 or 3 courses The crepes
