Old Bergamo is an amazing walled medieval on a hill outside Milan. Easily reached by bus. Venetian with a fascinating history. You don't have to travel Ryanair to find a reason to go!

Charming city in the foothills of the Alps and around 40 kms north east of Milan. Most of the main sights of the compact old city (Città Alta) can comfortably navigated on foot, though be prepared for some steep climbs. Key sights: Santa Maria Maggiore, known as the chapel of the city; the medieval and Renaissance designed Piazza Vecchia; the exquisite 15th Century Cappella Colleoni; and the walled stronghold of the Rocca. When you're done, Milan is about an hour away by train.

Thanks to Ryanair for using Bergamo Airport as a gateway to nearby Milan, this forgotten city of art in Italy has became one of the most visited place in Italy.
Bergamo was developed on two levels, the upper town (Citta Alta) and lower town (Citta Bassa).
The upper town is medieval, charming and fascinating, its history being millinery, founded by the Roman Empire far before Christ was born. At the heart of the old town is the lovely Piazza Vecchia. A wide open space surrounded by a mixture of medieval and Renaissance architectures, fine religious buildings, bell tower, musuems and etc. It's my favorite part of the city.
The lower town consists of hotels, regular bars, 2 shopping streets, ... and the usual stuff, you see in cities.
Bergamo was worth a visit. Maybe two days are fairely enough, there isn't that much to do. But the food, was really good.
