The third-largest green area in Lombardy
The third-largest park in Lombardy, after Ticino and Groane, the Parco dei Colli di Bergamo natural park encompasses almost 5,000 hectares of breathtaking scenery. It is the ideal place to immerse yourself in nature and take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life during your visit to Bergamo and the surrounding area.
The park encompasses the municipalities of Almé, Bergamo, Mozzo, Paladina, Ponteranica, Ranica, Sorisole, Torre Boldone, Valbrembo and Villa d’Almé, and features ecosystems that range from hills to mountains. The best way to explore the reserve is on foot, along the 75 kilometres of paths, or by mountain bike, following the network of cycle paths as long as 17 kilometres.
You can travel the Via dei Monasteri, in the footsteps of the Benedictine monks who settled in the monasteries of Valmarina and Astino. Or, if you prefer high mountains and rock faces, we recommend heading to the Valle di Giongo valley or the Canto Alto mountain to enjoy spectacular views.
Don’t forget to stop by the farmhouses you come across along the way to take a well-deserved rest while enjoying local delicacies.
