The look of Bergamo can be misleading when it comes to any feature that does not have to do with history. The ancient look of the walled city with its Medieval buildings, towers, and gates, in many places does not look like it has changed for centuries. But Bergamo has preserved its incredible architecture all the while staying current with trends, nightlife is happening in Bergamo. There are many bars and nightclubs to keep you entertained into the wee hours of the night. The one catch is that the most happening danceclubs are located in nearby Orio al Serio. Transportation there is simple however, as natives travel back and forth all the time.

Bar Dell'Angelo is a favorite for dancing, it is located at Via San Lorenzo 4. More favorites for dancing are the Fluid Discotheque and Discoteca Clubbing; both feature electro-spinning DJs and large dance floors. Check with a local website to see where the clubbing hotspots are while you are in Bergamo.

Staying in the city limits of Bergamo is certainly not without opportunity though. Start by walking around Citta Alta and you are sure to find the most active bars for the night. Or for classical entertainment, find out what is happening at the Teatro Donizetti during your stay.

www.2night.it is a nice website which lists dining spots, music and clubs. Nightlife in Bergamo revs up at 10-11 pm and winds down in the wee daylight hours, with a fresh "brioche" (most famous place to get it, it's in the suburbs, next to the UCI cinema, Curno).

Best place for a romantic (or chilling) night is the old town, CITTA' ALTA : amazing views and very old fashioned atmosphere.

In downtown Bergamo, best spots to hang out: Giardini S.Marco, Bobino, Bar H. Club: Capogiro.

Out of town: Provino , El tiempo.
