1) Crespi d’Adda.

Crespi d’Adda is an amazing example of an industrial village in the late 19th century. It’s been so well preserved that UNESCO has named it a World Heritage Site.

2) Bergamo Alta

Bergamo Alta has a certain charm that’s hard to describe, and at the heart of it all is Piazza Vecchia, with the Contarini Fountain in front of the Palazzo della Ragione and Palazzo Nuovo. You’ll also find the Torre Civica here, better known as the “Campanone”.

3) Accademia Carrara

The Accademia Carrara is one of the most sophisticated art collections in Europe. Visit it now and see exactly why, they’ve only recently finished a 7 year long restoration!

4) San Pellegrino Terme

A small gem nestled in the mountains of Val Brembana, a fabulous vacation destination to slip back and relax. Admire the incredible mountain faces before heading to the spa, grand hotel, and casino.

5) Rotonda di San Tomé

Get out your cameras, this incredible church features an opening in the wall in which, during the two equinoxes, you can see a ray of light that seems to illuminate all the columns! Many more secrets behind this amazing testament to history.
