Six historical sites,
Welcome to the Museo delle Storie di Bergamo
Welcome to the Museo delle Storie di Bergamo, the city’s network of historical museums! Six sites, with six stories to tell, so you can dive into different historical eras.
In Upper Bergamo, you’ll find the Convento di San Francesco with the Museo delle Fotografia Sestini and Bergamo 900, the Civic Tower known as the Campanone, the Palazzo del Podestà, which houses the Museo del 500, and the Rocca, home to the Museo dell’800 and the Museo Donizettiano. In Lower Bergamo, there’s the Torre dei Caduti with an exhibition about the birth of modern Bergamo.
Convento di San Francesco
In the heart of Upper Bergamo, in Piazza Mercato del Fieno, the Convento di San Francesco is a fine example of medieval monastic architecture rich in hidden treasures
Palazzo del Podestà
In the shadow of the Campanone, the Palazzo del Podestà tells a story of distant origins: from Roman Bergamo to the splendour of the Renaissance
In the heart of Piazza Vecchia stands the Torre Civica, also known as the Campanone. Soaring to 52.76 m (173 ft) in height, it offers visitors a breath-taking view of the old city.
Torre dei Caduti
In the heart of Lower Bergamo, past the Porta Nuova porticoes, stands a monument dedicated to the memory of those who died in WWI
A few steps from the funicular railway in Upper Bergamo, on the Hill of Saint Euphemia, stands the Rocca fortress, a place dear to the hearts of locals
Behind the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, in the quiet Via Arena is the Domus Magna: here, on the first floor, is the Museo Donizettiano.
