About this location
The Lombardy region
The surface of Lombardy is divided almost equally between plain (which represents approximately 47% of the territory) and the mountainous areas (which account for 41%). The remaining 12% of the region is hilly.
Under the morphological appearance of the region is divided into four parts: a strictly alpine, mountain or a hill, a flat or slightly move divided into Upper and Lower plains and finally the area south of the river Po The region is crossed by dozens of rivers (including the largest river in Italy) and is bathed by hundreds of lakes, natural and artificial origin.
It reaches the highest point of the Punta Perrucchetti (4,020 m), belonging to the Bernina massif. It's a place full of history, it's story begin in the Neolithic era, culture and tradition.
The city of Bergamo is divided into two parts, the Upper Town, an old town surrounded by walls, which, as you can guess from the name, is the upper part, and the Lower Town, which, although it has also an ancient origin and retains its historic center, has been renewed, in some parts, by recent interventions.
The Holiday house Pelabrocco is located in the historic Lower Town, at the foot of the ancient Venetian walls that enclose the Upper Town, a few meters from Porta Sant'Agostino one of the four gates to the walls. A few hundred meters are the most important museums in Bergamo, Gamec (museum of modern and contemporary art), Accademia Carrara (art gallery), Bernareggi Museum (art gallery).
Its location is strategic to reach by foot, in a few minutes, both the Upper Town and the center of the modern part of Bergamo. The bus that connects the center of the Upper Town with the new center of Bergamo and the airport is 50 mt. far. Bergamo was founded by the Gauls, and was annexed to the Roman Empire in 49 BC. Later conquered first by the Lombards, then by the Franks, became a Free City in 1098, was part of the Lombard League, came under the influence of the Duchy of Milan until 1428, when it became part of the Serenissima Republic (Venice), who built the famous walls.

"Spacious well appointed apartment, conveniently located as a base for the lakes and more"
We booked the apartment as a base for an eight night break that would provide a central location for the Monza Formula 1 Grand Prix and also to visit the Italian Lakes.
The Apartment is located just beneath the dividing wall from Città Alta to Città Bassa and as such is conveniently located for both. The apartment seems very secure, being accessed through an arched entrance (which is locked at night) from the street, then a gate into the central courtyard, before getting to the first floor where the apartment is found.
On arrival we were warmly greeted by Patrizia, who briefly showed us the amenities then departed to leave us to enjoy our stay.
We were provided with an ample welcome breakfast pack which included, tea, coffee, cereal, milk, fruit juice, water, French toast, cake, biscuits, honey and preserves, which lasted us several days.
The apartment was spacious and spotlessly clean, with plenty of wardrobe space. The kitchen also consisted of integrated units, including a fridge freezer and a dish washer. There was even a small utility room providing a washing machine and an iron.
We visited in September whilst the weather was really warm, however there were extra blankets and pillows provided, and central heating is fitted in the apartment, however we had need for neither.
We were also provided with a MyFi dongle ( a mobile internet device to allow your laptop/tablet etc. to connect to the internet through) which came in handy both in and out of the apartment.
Some previous reviews that I have read elsewhere have commented on the noise from scooters late at night disturbing their sleep. Whilst it is true that Scooters do go about outside, we did not find this a problem and would probably recommend an extra Birra Morretti to counter this :)
we were provided with a parking permit for a small car park just twenty yards from the apartment. This is a must for anyone traveling by car. Unfortunately there are twice as many parking permit holders than there are spaces and this leads to a large number of cars having to park adjacent to the allotted bays. We received a parking ticket one day for not being in the correct space which we needed to pay to the PostItalia (post office) of just short of 30 Euro. However, the cars that received tickets seemed to be random as other cars were not ticketed that day which were also offenders Yet another day we received no ticket, whilst an adjacent car was booked. The parking is the only negative I can think of for the apartment, and if we were not traveling far and wide each day to either Monza or the lakes, then we would have had no need for the car. Bergamo is very pedestrian friendly and everywhere in the city can be reached on foot. We also discovered that there is a regular bus service from Bergamo airport which has a stop close by to the apartment. Milan is a short train or bus journey away too.
All in all I would recommend Casa Vacanze Pelabrocco to anyone wishing to visit Bergamo and the surrounding area.

"great apartment in great location"
this apartment is perfectly located for seeing both the fortified old medieval high town (Città Alta) and the 'new' parts of Bergamo where there is an abundance of stylish shops. The apartment is easy to get to using public transport from the airport. It is also situated near the funicular station which has a terminal at Città Alta from where the funicular line takes you even higher to San Vigilio - a quiet and beautiful hill-top village with stunning views and a few restaurants serving wonderful food - visit at lunch time to make the most of the views!
The apartment owners are incredibly helpful and friendly - this was our second stay in one of their apartments.The apartment is stylish and furnished to a high standard - it was also spotlessly clean.The only minor problem is that the street whilst not busy is used by some noisy motorbikes at night - so its worth taking ear plugs! However, this did not spoil our stay as there were so many positives both within the apartment and its location. There are lots of lovely sites to see, numerous gorgeous restaurants and shops - you will not be short of things to do. We also travelled by bus (journey time about one hour) to Lake Iseo - which was easily managed in a day with a leisurely lunch by the attractive lake. There are lots of other options as the town is well-served by both bus and train services. Enjoy! Bergamo is great!!
