Bergamo is one marvellous Italian city, situated not far from Milan and divided into two parts: Bergamo Alta and Bergamo Bassa. Surrounded by her ancient walls, Bergamo Alta is the highest part of the city, the oldest, and reachable by a cable car ride. Bergamo Bassa has antique origins herself, but has also something of a more modern edge. Here, we delve into both areas in search of some of the finest bars and watering holes in town.
Bobino is characterized by a modern interior design. Customers are welcomed into a warm atmosphere, which the soft lights help create and the décor enhances. Patrons can also take a place in the stylish dehor and benefit from complimentary WiFi. There’s a long list of cocktails, divided into neat categories, along with oodles of beers, wines and liquors served straight. From Bobino, customers can enjoy a nice view over Piazza della Libertà, where there’s also an ice-skating rink in winter.

Caffè Del Tasso
This old fashioned, historic café is situated at the heart of Bergamo Alta. Aside from the classical hot beverages, customers can also taste some original ice-cream flavors, like liquorice and more. The remarkable location justifies the extra expense belied by the menu here, since Caffé del Tasso also offers a breathtaking view of the sprawling new city below.

Fontana Di Sant’Agata
Situated in the heart of the Centro Storico, this classic enoteca offers a wide variety of wines in a most characteristic setting. In fact, the site’s history goes all the way back to Roman times, and customers have the feeling of walking into another era when stepping in through the stone entrance and climbing down the stairs to the dining room below ground at Fontana di Sant’Agata.
