Why rent a car in Bergamo?
Bergamo is a great place for renting a car. Historic and cozy, it is also close to the Alps, many other famous Italian cities, and the Adriatic Sea which you can all easily reach if you have your own wheels.
Top ways to enter Bergamo
- Bergamo Airport: Located just 6 km (3.6 mi) from the city center, Bergamo Airport is served by more than 30 airlines. It sometimes also called Orio al Serio Airport and Il Caravaggio Airport.
- Milan Linate Airport: Located about 50 km (31 mi) from Bergamo and the one closest to Milan, Linate Airport is a hub for Alitalia and is also served by many other airlines like British Airways, Lufthansa, and KLM.
- Milan Malpensa Airport: Second busiest in Italy, Malpensa Airport is by far the largest one in the Lombardy region. Driving from there to Bergamo takes about 90 minutes.
Useful city facts
- The average temperature in Bergamo is 22.8 °C (73 °F) in July and 2.7 °C (36.9 °F) in January. Due to its rather high elevation, the city quite often experiences snow in winter.
- Bergamo is built on the site of Bergomum, an ancient town built by Cenomani, a Celtic tribe. The city has been part of many different domains like the Roman Empire, the Ostrogothic Kingdom, the Republic of Venice and many others.
Top destinations and activities
- Città Alta. Most of Bergamo’s landmarks are located in the walled Upper City, such as Torre di Gombito Tower House and the fabled Bergamo Cathedral. Piazza Vecchia, the city’s main square, features some beautiful examples of both medieval and renaissance architecture, such as Palazzo della Ragione, Palazzo Nuovo, and the Contarini fountain. The Upper City’s many museums are also very much worth exploring.
- The Venetian Walls. Having kept the upper city safe for centuries, the walls that enclose it are a World Heritage Site and a great place to explore.
- Città Bassa. Lower city main attraction is perhaps Accademia Carrara, one of Italy’s largest collections of medieval, Renaissance and Baroque art.
Traffic and parking tips
- The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h.
- Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
- The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
- If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
- The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment.
- The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.
There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of a vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.
Ideas for a day-trip
- Milan. Bergamo’s much larger neighbor is the capital of Lombardy and one of Europe’s most famous cities. Roaming its streets, interacting with locals and eating in small side-street restaurants is just as fun as seeing the incredible architecture, museums and art the city has to offer.
- Lake Garda. Slightly less than an hour and half’s drive east of Bergamo, Lago di Garda is located on the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains and is considered one of the most picturesque lakes in Europe.
- Adamello Brenta Nature Park. About 2 hours drive northeast of Bergamo, this mountainous nature park is home many lakes, forests, a glacier, and wildlife species like bears and ibex.
Most popular rental types and cars
The most popular rental car in Italy is the Fiat Panda, although travelers also like the Ford Fiesta and the Fiat 500. The most often picked rental car types are economy, mini, and compact.
- Switzerland. Just an hour’s drive north of Bergamo, the Switzerland’s beautiful, Italian-speaking Ticino region offers interesting cities like Lugano and Locarno, stunning landscapes, and the food that’s as delicious as on the other side of the border. From here, you can continue to explore the rest of Switzerland. Note that if you’re coming from Bergamo to Switzerland, you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it.
- Venice. This famous city, made up of 118 islands and countless canals, can be explored for days and weeks. It is just a bit over 2 hours drive east of Bergamo, and you can stop at other historically important places like Brescia, Verona, and Padua, on the way.
- Tuscany. The most Italian part of Italy, Tuscany is just a three hour drive south of Lombardy and has world-famous cities like Pisa and Florence, the Chianti wine region, the coast of Ligurian Sea, and the most picturesque countryside.
