Does whatever Bergamo does!
Bergamo is a little city and commune, which is about 40 km northeast of Milan. This place is beyond beautiful! The town has two centers, which is the upper city called “Città alta”, a hilltop medieval town, which is the historic center, surrounded by 17th-century cyclopic Venetian defensive walls and the other center is the lower city. The upper city is not only where I spend my time in Bergamo, but it’s mainly where the pictures below were taken ( and again it is not about style or fashion, because I don’t even look special, it’s about the mood).
And everything was cool when we arrived. We took the bus to the upper city, had great food and the best dessert I have eaten in my entire life. THE BEST! I mean it. And then actually everything went wrong with the moment we found out that there is no bus driving to the lower city anymore. Fuck our lives!
So we literally ran down the whole freaking path. Not that we were too broke to take a cab, but there was no cab around. Plus (as if this was not enough) we were so close to miss the last train back to Milan. And that’s where the panic started. We were on the run! Like Beyonce and Jay-Z’s On The Run is a joke compared to what we did.
1 hour and 15 minutes. 30° Celsius. Feet that hurt from walking the days before. But we made it. And what happened on the train deserves a own little post…
However, enjoy Bergamo:
