I strongly suggest this place: http://www.villahostels.com/index-en It's an hostel, but it's clean, cheap and very close both to the city center, the beach and the Vieux Nice. almost 8 years ago
There isn't a best restaurant in Bergamo :) I agree with SirCharly: in the Old Town, Da Mimmo is a good choice for a pizza or a traditional dinner. Alternatives can be Da Franco (just in front to Mimmo) or Ristorante San Vigilio. A couple of km out of the center there is "La Grotta Azzurra", with a really good food. almost 8 years ago
I'm going for short trip to Bergamo and than to Venice with my girlfriend. Please advice place to stay in Bergamo and in Venice.
Accomodation in Bergamo: even if there are many hotels in the city, I suggest you to stay in one of the many hostels / bed and breakfast of the city. I tried this http://www.myroombergamo.com/ and I was really satisfied. Food: restaurants in Bergamo serve good food with a fair price. In the Old City ("Città Alta") my suggestions are "Da Franco" e "Da Mimmo". Place to visit: definetely the Old City. The City Center in the downtown is a good place for shopping (see Via Sentierone). Have a good time in Bergamo! about 7 years ago
