Perched high on a hilltop, surrounded by Venetian defensive walls that date back to the 16th century, Città Alta is a lovely medieval town that constitutes the historic center of Bergamo. Also a hub for active nightlife, the bars in this part of town are a bit more expensive than Città Bassa due to the area’s beauty and historical interest to tourists, but this is happily balanced out by the delights of aperitivo, the Italian happy hour. Discover the best bars in Città Alta, Bergamo.
According to locals, The Tucans is one of the best Irish pubs in Bergamo. Conveniently located near the Funicular, they serve crisp pints and a nice selection of wine with genuine warmth and friendliness. The owner is an Italian lover of all things Irish, whose passion manages to infuse sufficient Irish vibes in the atmosphere here (despite the whole staff being Italian). If you want to eat something with your drink, The Tucans serves tasty helpings of fish n’ chips along with a handful of regional dishes. They keep their music on all day long to add to the friendly ambience, sometimes playing alongside a big screen TV during football and rugby games.
