If you love Italy, Bergamo is really a world class destination! It is a city in northern Italy, about an hour away from Milan. In this city you’ll find boutiques and shops of all kinds. Aside from clothing, you will find many boutiques and great pastry and food shops throughout the city.
Bergamo is divided into two parts. An old part, Cítta Alta (upper town) and a new more modern part, Cittá Bassa (lower town). The old part of town is really something extra and should be your main destination. We found the best place to stay: GombitHotel! The GombitHotel is an architectural monument dating back to the 13th century. It is an homage to the medieval city’s cultural heritage: food and art.
Situated right next to the magnificent Torre del Gombito (a thirteenth century stone tower), the GombitHotel is located right in the heart of Bergamo Alta, between the Duomo (cathedral) and Piazza Vecchia, described by the great architect Le Corbusier as “the most beautiful square in Europe.” The GombitHotel is not only a fantastic design hotel, but also a showcase for young artists to experiment with and exhibit their work. From the lobby to the tower lounge it’s like you’re staying in an art gallery where the exhibitions are constantly changing!
The four star GombitHotel is part of the exclusive international circuit of DesignHotels™, the brand that distinguishes the hotels that have made architectural peculiarity and interior design their own distinctive features, masterfully combined with impeccable service based on functionality. The best thing about GombitHotel is its lively mix of art and design. The historic buildings are transformed in a beautifully clean and uncluttered way, while maintaining the old character.
Once you reach your room or suite, which are available in 4 different categories, you’ll never want to leave! The furniture has been custom made for each room, and the decor is finished with fantastic artwork and beautiful materials. Warm wooden floors and heavy curtains create a cozy feel. State-of-the-art bathrooms offer a choice of tub or shower.
