    Pigeons every where

    pigeons everywhere

    Watch out for pigeons ;)
    and everything they bring with them!
    I have noticed that there were quite some pidgeons around the place, waiting for their good luck when you would drop your bread or when families come visiting the square and little kids throw bread to these birds.

    I love animals but I am not so keen on this ones as they droppings are very destructive for buildings and statues and it is not hygienic anyways.
    Not to mention if you go sit on something they have left for you on your chair :)

    Lucky this didn't happened this time, but later on one of my next locations I visited in Italy, it did!

    Bergamo is expensive

    expensive eating out

    I found Bergamo rather expensive.
    I know you pay more if you sit at a famous spot but 8 euro for some salad, a few pieces of mozarella, olives and a spoon of carrots and tuna fish is really costly.
    4 euro's for 10 cl of wine? my goodness.
    So you better watch out and compare prices, unless you have a lot of $$ in your wallet and don't care.

    Violent supporters

    by Calcio Written Nov 29, 2004

    Normally it's not dangerous to go to a footballgame in Bergamo, but on some matchdays it's worth it to be a bit more careful. As I wrote under the stadium-sector, the Atalanta-supporters have the same mentality as the one in Brescia. That means that they kick first and asks then... :(

    But during the 15 games or so I've watched with them, I've had problems just once. And then I've seen a lot of their highrisk-games.

    Anyway, don't walk around close to the away-section when the away-supporters arrives, and don't wear the colours of the away-team, even if you support them. That way you should be safe.

    The biggest enemies of the Atalanta-supporters are Brescia, Napoli, Milan, Inter and Juventus.

    For games with Albinoleffe there are no danger at all. No fights ever!

    Keep out the railway station

    Bergamo is not exactely one of the most dangerous places in Italy - it has, though some not really safe areas.
    The one around the train station, both the left side (Via Bonomelli and Via Paleocapa) and the right one (that leads to the bus platform) are to be avoided, especially at night. For the night travellers I advise to take a taxi just outside the station and reach their destinations.

    The usual ones: central & bus station are not well frequented especially during nighthours. Be careful ...
    Being honest I've been a frequent traveller for few months few years ago and I've never had any problem but you know ... you never know :-)
    Moreover in 2002 the are undergone an heavy refurbishment process and now it's also monitored by live cameras.

    Like many cities in Italy...

    Like many cities in Italy Bergamo in the last years suffers the phenomenon of immigration of albanian, morrocan, and other non european people. Many of them are unemployed and without residence permit. Especially under cover of darkness it is'nt nice to walk alone in a peripheral area or near the station.

    Beggars

    Can I have an Euro for a bread? NO!

    There are beggars at Bergamo and some are just annoying.

    It seems a bit more than common street sense is required at some of the busier streets.

    Clock Tower

    loud and proud

    By all means climb the tower and enjoy the views. As we found out though, the bell does work and is very load, avoid going up on the hour or half hour, luckily for us it was 1pm and not midday.
