Piazza Vecchia

Recommended
Piazza Vecchia is the political centre of Bergamo. On the right is the Palladian-style Palazzo Scamozziano, home to the city library and its 500,000 volumes, while to the left, the Palazzo della Ragione is the oldest town hall in Italy dating from 1199. The Torre Civica, which keeps watch over the Palazzo del Podestà, commands a fine view. The arcades of the Palazzo della Ragione lead to the beautiful Piazza del Duomo, the centre of religious power in the town.
