Discover the Italian capital of culture 2023: Brescia and Bergamo, two cities and one capital that integrates the two cities to multiply their value and experiences. Let’s discover it together on a unique journey, among artistic and cultural treasures, unique flavors and international excellence.
Let’s start from Milan to discover Brescia, the second largest city in the region. It is located at the foot of the Alps, a few kilometers from Lake Garda and Iseo. An ancient city whose origins date back over 3,200 years ago, Brescia has a conspicuous artistic and architectural heritage: its monuments from the Roman and Longobard periods have been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO. Active in the manufacturing, engineering, textile, chemical and food industries, it is one of the main economic-productive centers of Italy and is known for the famous Mille Miglia vintage car race and for the production of Franciacorta.
In the early afternoon, we will discover Bergamo, an ancient city where Celts, Longobards and Romans have ruled the hill over the centuries, but the most significant period is the domination of the Venetian Republic which lasted 4 centuries. At the time Venice and Bergamo were strongly linked both from a historical and cultural point of view.
The guided tour will start in Piazza Vecchia, the heart of the ancient city and continue among historical and religious monuments including the Palazzo del Comune, the Palazzo della Ragione, the Cathedral, Santa Maria Maggiore, the Colleoni Chapel and the Baptistery.
