At the medieval Cita Alta surrounded by amazing historical buildings is located this square. Take your time to relax, drink your coffee or aperitivo before visiting the rest of the marvelous old city of Bergamo.

The vibrant Piazza Vecchia is a medieval gathering space, surrounded by historic structures that have stood the test of time. We learned that Pope John XXIII once attended university in one of the buildings here; it is now a restaurant—one among many--with tables spilling out...More

This this the most interesting piazza, surrounded by the duomo, town hall and the library. Built exactly where the ancient Roman forum was, it is a lovely and unexpected opening amidst the narrow streets of 'alta città'.
