Things to do in Bergamo
The nearby city of Bergamo is not just an important centre for trade and commerce, Bergamo is a tourist attraction in its own right. The ancient city was founded by a Celtic tribe and became later a major settlement in Roman times. Located some 40 km to the northeast of Milan, Bergamo's spires and red roofs were fought over in turn by Frederick Barbarossa in 1165, by King John of Bohemia in 1331 and after various other skirmishes and major battles it fell into the hands of the Venetian Republic in 1428, where it remained under its fiercely protective grasp until 1797. Many buildings in Bergamo bear witness to the city's turbulent past and display Venetian style architecture alongside Romanesque and Baroque churches, palazzos and piazzas.
