“check the right time to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

if you want to enjoy this "meridiana" (solar clock) at its best you should to check in advance at what time you can see the ray of the sun goes through the lines. Time changes according to different season and it's written on the meridiana itself

“Fabulous little museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

Although this is all in Italian it is an interactive museum that engages you and holds your attention. We spent three hours before lunch and then went back for more! (ticket lasts all day) the staff were on hand to translate if you needed it but we grasped the overall meanings
Buy a Bergamo Ticket from hotels or the ATB point in Porta Nuova in the lower city or the ATB bus ticket office for free use of the funiculars, buses and free entry to most museums. Can be bought for 24, 48 or 72 hour use, includes travel back to Orio Sera airport.

“My kids love it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

Every time I go to Bergamo with my kids, a take a few moments to explain to them how this clock works.
A fine example of how a meridian should be.
Pity that some tuck are able to pass over it when they have to reach Piazza Vecchia. This should be really forbidden!
