What you'll do

During this tour, we will discover the vibrant Western area of Città Bassa, the Lower Town of Bergamo. And this is the shopping district, so you'd better be prepared to carry a lot of shopping bags!

Sure, shopping is all well and good, but we will also be on the lookout for unexpected sights all through our itinerary. Even in an area that at first glance may look "commercial", in Bergamo history is waiting for you around every corner.

Moreover, we will be visiting shops that you can't find everywhere else. We will focus especially on historic artisan workshops and design boutiques, without forgetting about fashion: among shopkeepers who have worked in the place for decades and up-and-coming entrepreneurs starting up their innovative businesses, we will get a glimpse of old and new Bergamo, both as bustling as ever.
We will take time to listen to the shop owners themselves telling us the story of how their business came to be, how artisan traditions can prosper in an ever-changing world and how fashion doesn't have to come far from home: for some time we will be able to interact with the people behind the counter.
