Virtually speaking, Bergamo consists of two cities. The upper city on top of a hill and the lower city which is the modern part. Of old, Bergamo associates itself with Venice.
Bergamo has about 118,000 inhabitants and belongs to the 40 largest cities in Italy. The city has a strong sense of local identity, which expresses itself, among other things, in its local dialect.
Bergamo is located in the Lombardy region, like Milan. The city is located at the foot of the Alps, and on a sunny day, you can see the skyscrapers of Milan in the south-west
Bergamo's economy is characterized by the industrial sector that is active in engineering, textile, chemicals, food and construction products. Especially the transformation of minerals into iron, concrete and marble are economic drivers. The professional population in this area is famous for its dedication and skills. The city is little known among tourists.
Bergamo has a local airport, called "Orio al Serio" (BGY in short), which is located a few kilometers to the south-east of the center. The airport processes a handful of international flights.
The bus company "SAB" is active in Bergamo, offering services to the surrounding areas, including Milan. There is also a train station, from where regular trains depart for Milan. The journey takes about 50 minutes.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
