Things to do in Bergamo

Edit This

Go  SWIMMING  at the Pesenti swimming pool near the Hospital Maggiore di Bergamo. There is an indoor pool for adults and one for little children for the winter. In summer there is a diving pool, an olympic pool and a childrens pool divided into two parts according to age - one for babies who can just barely sit up! Sit either on the wide cement terraces to watch all the action in the pools or sit on the great lawn sourrounding the pools and enjoy the view of the hills. Go down to the underwater viewing window at the diver's pool and see the divers splash into the water.

There are lifeguards, a restaurant, a bar, toilets, showers, dressing rooms, and at the diving pool there are three different diving boards - small, medium and very high!

Big Ravioli Bergamo Style, Bergamo Corn Meal, Bergamo Corn Meal with melted cheese from Branzi, Donizetti Cake and Treviglio Cake are some of the recipes you can make after you have tried these dishes which are typical of Bergamo.

But take some of these ingredients home with you because it will be hard to find them out of Italy. So go to the supermarket to get gifts to take back home: coffee, olive oil, cookies, cakes, a jar of pesto sauce, cheeses, wine, Parmesan cheese in a big hunk, candied chestnuts, Perugia Kisses, olive oil with truffles and more.
