Location

The Holiday Apartment Arti & Pich is located in the heart of Bergamo, a few hundred meters from the Porta Nuova’s Propilei,  the bus and train stations, and is therefore well connected to all places of interest and attractions that this city offers to its guests.

The city is divided in two sections, the Medieval settlement called ‘Città Alta’ (the upper town), and the more recent and modern ‘Città Bassa’ (downtown).

 

The Upper town is completely surrounded by Venetian walls, which have become part of the Unesco Heritage since this year. Here you can visit the Natural Science Museum, the Santa Maria Maggiore Cathedral, the Colleoni Chapel and the facing Baptistery, besides the majestic Piazza Vecchia, the old town square.
Lower Bergamo is the soul of the city, with the presence of the town hall inside the Fizzoni Palace, the Piacentiniano Centre, the Carrara Academy, the Gamec gallery, and the shopping area of via XX settembre and its Boutiques.
The Bergamo province also offers the possibility of making excursions around the Iseo or Endine Lakes, or hiking among the mountains of the Seriana and Brembana Valleys, locations of well-known and renowned ski resorts, such as Foppolo or the Pora Mount.

The proximity to the Orio al Serio international airport facilitates transfers to Milan or Brescia, either by bus or by train.
