Bergamo is located about 40 kilometers from Milan and is divided into two parts connected by a funicular: the modern Lower Town (Bergamo Alta) and the old picturesque Upper Town (Bergamo Bassa) which sits on a hill. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017 for its Venetian defensive walls. The Upper Town offers a lot to see, for example, the Colleoni chapel, Piazza Vecchia, the Palazzo della Ragione and the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. The Upper Town is also the birthplace of some musicians and opera composers including Gaetano Donizetti.

It is a square in the heart of the town surrounded by Palazzo della Ragione, a 12th-century building used for many different reasons in its long existence, the loggia of three Gothic arches, and the Torre del Comune.
It is a church built in the 15th century to house the tomb of the condottiere Bartolomeo Colleoni and his daughter. The ceilings were painted by Tiepolo in 1732. The façade is richly decorated with marble of different colors.
Founded in 1137, it is the most important church in Bergamo. The external profile is quite rigorous and contrasts with the baroque and extremely decorated interior. It houses a considerable collection of 15th-18th-century paintings.
