Bergamo, a town in Italy's Lombardy region, gave me such an inspirational trip—I found so many things to explore and learn about here! I highly recommend this place, and to those of you who will be visiting this side of Italy, make sure that you spend ample time at the Piazza Vecchia, the heart of the old city. This plaza is said to be one of the most beautiful in Europe, and when you see it, you will definitely agree! The attractions you must not miss here are the Palazzo Ragione and the Biblioteca Civica. There are stunning medieval and Renaissance structures all over the place as well!
