I am so glad I chose to visit Bergamo with this guided tour, something off the beaten path! The town is not far from Milan, buildings are amazing and full of history, you wouldn't expect it! The tour was well organized with comfortable transportation and the group was small. Our guide Silvia was incredibly passionate about her job and the city. It is a great way to spend a day. Not to be missed!
