Bergamo – Nightsky’s Riviera trip part 10

Population: 117 000
Regione: Lombardia
Year visited: 2008
Bergamo is much more than just a city where the airport for lowfare airlines, Orio al Serio, is. Even if the airport is considered to be in Milan on the ticket, Bergamo lies one hour by train from Milan and is definately a city of its own. It has a spectacular historical part that lies on a hill while the newer part is the city center, that lies in the flat lower part of Bergamo. So we decided to spend some hours in this cultural and historical city before catching the plane to Gothenburg (one evening and one morning). The city is beautiful and looks very wealthy, but I also got a feeling that the new part of it is very segregated with many homeless people and beggars and the streets, at least in the evening. Some streets were considered ver dangerous, according to the staff on our hotel, something that feels very strange since it is not very big, is not a harbour town and it is located in the rich regione Lombardia.





The rest of the pics are on World Travel Images:

This was the last city we visited before flying to Göteborg and then home by train to Malmö. So it’s the last part of the Riviera trip.
