If you love fashion, Bergamo is the place to go. Look at the people – they are so chic! In fact, in this city you’ll find boutiques and shops of all kinds.
The main shopping streets are in the Città Bassa: via XX Settembre, via Sant’Alessandro, via Torquato Tasso, Viale Papa Giovanni XXIII. The must-go shop is Petronio (via Antonio Locatelli, 2), both for men and women. In the città Alta there are some nice shops in via Colleoni.
In the city centre there is also one of the best Italian department stores: Coin, in via Zambonate. And just outside of the city, there is Italy’s largest shopping center.
The Orio Commercial Center – opposite the airport - has more than 200 stores to choose from among restaurants, bars, a grocery store, and great views. Orio Center is open everyday.
If you are still hungry for more, remember that Milan is a shopping paradise and is only about an hour away by bus, train, or car. Aside from clothing, you will find many boutiques and great pastry and food shops throughout the city. Bergamo is particularly known for its sweet cakes and delicacies in the pastry stores. Try, for instance, the Panificio Tre soldi and Mimì, la casa dei sapori, the first in Lower Town and the other in via Colleoni - Upper Town.
