I'm on my way to Spain for a long weekend and flying out of Bergamo, about an hour's drive from Milan. Sergio offered to take me to the airport and spend a few hours showing me around this medieval town, so I very happily got a chance to come and see it, fresh snow and all! We walked around the old part of town on the top of the hill, seeing the historic churches and cute storefronts. Then we headed down an old walkway to the new part of town (below) for a quick dinner then took the funicular back up to the car. The city is quaint and has kept a lot of it's charm, even though it has also developed a lot recently due to the nearby factories and industry spreading out from Milan. I bet it is beautiful in the summer when it's packed with Italian's on weekend excursions. I would love to come back for a day when the museums are open and the weather not quite so chilly.
Thank you Sergio for a great evening!!!
