Tips

In 2016, we were still planning our bicycle vacations with a predefined time-schedule. At that time, we also booked hotels weeks in advance and Bergamo was just one of the pre-scheduled stops after 4 or 5 days of cycling.

It turned out a lucky shot as Bergamo also has a nice old walled part up the mountain, certainly worth a visit.

The train from Bergamo to Milano takes less than an hour and is also very budget friendly.

Modena

Tips

By far, the most popular and well known product of the city is the Balsamic vinegar of Modena.

Less well known and a real surprise to us was the Lambrusco di Modena, a light fizzy red whine which is served chilled. Go for a glass of Lambrusco around apero time and the local cafes will serve you complementary nice Italian appetizers.
