The center of contemporary Bergamo is the ideal place to stroll in the name of shopping, entertainment, art and history!
This magnificent stretch of centuries-old street is the elegant Centro Piacentiniano, an incredible architectural complex that once housed the ancient city fair. This ancient atmosphere is evoked thanks to the many events and typical stalls that all year round animate the city center with colors and scents. Proceeding along the course of the Sentierone, skirting the row of imposing chestnut trees and passing the propylaeums of Porta Nuova, you arrive at Via XX Settembre, overlooked by Palazzo Frizzoni, the seat of the municipality.
From here on you will only have to let yourself be carried away by the frenzy of local life: boutiques and stores of all kinds, views and alleys of rare beauty, all in the name of entertainment. And finally, why not treat yourself to a coffee or an aperitif with one of the clubs that animate this corner of the city?
While walking, do not miss the many neighboring squares, including the beautiful Piazza Dante in the center of which stands the Triton Fountain also known as the Fountain of the Fair designed by Caniana. If you love art, you can’t miss the majestic Church of San Bartolomeo and Stefano, which closes the east side of this area: inside is kept the famous “Pala Martinengo”, painted by Lorenzo Lotto in the sixteenth century.
Along the Sentierone on one side there is the “quadriportico” with its elegant structure of airy arcades, inlaid with marble and dotted with refined stores and restaurants, on the other side there is the city theater, dedicated to the great composer Gaetano Donizetti from Bergamo.
Crossing the street you will find another large and elegant widening: Piazza Vittorio Veneto , at the center of which stands the obelisk dedicated to Napoleon and overlooked by the tower of the Fallen.
