The fountain looks very well preserved and it’s located right in the heart of the old town. Surrounded by beautiful buildings and churches.

Having a fresh water fountain right in the Plaza certainly adds colour and character to the place & enhances the ambience no end. Heard somewhere the water in Bergamo & Lombardy is the cleanest most potable around. So go ahead & do your thing!

We visited the the old town and stooped by the Fontana Contarini to listen to a great group of musician sing classical music. It was a great afternoon with kids running around and many people enjoying the beautiful atmosphere of the square.

Lovely fountain in the centre of Bergamo old town square. What is great is it has fresh water pouring out of it, that is so refreshing to dip into on hot summer days.

This piazza is so peaceful, so quietly beautiful. I hope you can see it without too many tourists to fully appreciate it.

An old fountain placed in the main square of the Citta Alta,the old part of town.Not very impressive in my opinion,a rather banal fountain.But the square is picturesque!
