Valle Brembana, the Orobie Alps, San Pellegrino Terme and Bergamo

The Valle Brembana has villages with history and culture. Belongs to the area of Lombardia and is one of the valleys of Bergamo.

SAN PELLEGRINO TERME HAS A LOT TO OFFER 
Small coffee bars and restaurants, activities for families, familiar hotels and local shops. Here you find the "Gelateria" for nice ice cream or the local biscuit from "Bigo's" cafeteria. You can walk along the riverside and if you want, upon the hills to "Vetta" for looking at the amazing painted houses.
You can visit the old Casino in Art Nouveau style and have a tour with the old tram "Funicolare" going to the top of Vetta.

THE SPARKLING, WORLDWIDE FAMOUS WATER
The water has always been important and it still is for the village of San Pellegrino Terme. From the left side of the river Brembo they still bring the fresh mineral water to the factory. The factory opened 1899 and still produces sparkling mineral water in the characteristic green bottles. In the 60's they introduced the alcohol-free drinks as Bitter and Lemon.

In San Pellegrino Terme, we have the square, the piazza, as a natural come together area. The nice gallery "Portici Colleoni" was built in 1930 and today you find small shops, coffee bars and restaurants in the newly renovated gallery.
The modern Spa resort, QC Terme is well worth a visit when you are here.

THE OROBIE ALPS
The mountains have always been a place to relax, find peace and to catch up time for the Italian people, and they are proud of their mountains. The walking paths are meanders through passes and tops. At the Rifugios you meet others for having a bit of food and drinks and listen to the stories from the mountains.
Wintertime you can go skiing in small charming ski slopes or take a walk with snowshoes.

NATURE AND THE ANIMALS
The different types of animals are from lowland terrain to alpine terrain. You find wildlife like ibex, ermine and marmots and of course a lot of nice wild birds. The natural products from the valley are apples, truffle, different kinds of mushroom, honey, chestnuts and a lot more.
From the animals the farmer produces cheese with milk from goat, cheap, donkey and cow you find the most spectacular local cheeses and the quality is high, certified of Slow food and DOP. Often is the recipes from a long-familiar tradition and made just like it was before.

BERGAMO, THE COSY OLD CITY 
Compare to Milano it is small and handsome, the tempo is slower, the buildings are lower but here is a very very nice feeling of ordinary Italian life. The city is well preserved after the war and was standing under Venice for many many years. The river of Adda was the border between Venice, Bergamo and Milano on the other side. In many ways it still is.
We do guide tours in the town, for history, arts and churches or more about the modern way of living.

VIA PRIULA AND VIA MERCATORUM
The historical roads made for trade exchange between the rich Veneziani people and the northern part of Europe. You can still walk on the road and see a lot of different bridges, churches and houses from this period. The small villages like Olmo al Brembo, Santa Brigida and Ornica are worth a historical visit. The road extends through the valley and reaches the top of the "Passo San Marco". From this point, you are looking into Switzerland and the view is amazing.
