Guided tour of the Città Alta, the historic center of Bergamo with its famous Venetian Walls. The story Città Alta will be told while walking in the narrow cobbled streets, looking at buildings with wonderful facades and squares full of charm and history, discovering museums, churches and art treasures, meeting the most famous of Bergamo: the composer Gaetano Donizetti, the bold commander Bartolomeo Colleoni, the Renaissance artist Lorenzo Lotto, and knowing the history of Bergamo through the testimonies that Città Alta has preserved: the bell tower, the washhouse, the cistern, the powder magazines, the stairs that through the gardens brought from Città Alta to villages outside the walls.
