Back to Milan

Miky led us on a walking tour of Città Bassa—Low city—Modern Bergamo (mostly late 19th century) in the morning. This included stops for pastries so there was no chance of hunger setting in. In the afternoon we drove to Città Alta—Upper city—Ancient Bergamo. The development of this walled city took place over many centuries and was probably first begun in Etruscan times. In addition to the renovation of the buildings and the creation of many shops and restaurants there are many very large, beautiful villas on the outskirts of the old city. Michael decided he wanted to specialize in photos of scooters as there are so many of them in Italy. He continues this theme throughout the trip. This was another wonderful day but our feet were very tired at the end. Thank you again for a second great day in Bergamo!
