Bergamo slow: a peaceful holiday

Stay linked to spirituality and slow tourism
Sponsored by Visit Bergamo
Bergamo offers holiday experiences with many different facets, including a stay linked to spirituality and slow tourism. Tourism for those who want to stop and savour the authentic values of a land that has given birth to, among other things, St. John XXIII. A whole series of religious itineraries are dedicated to him, but the Marian sanctuaries are also of considerable importance. The stand out among them is the Caravaggio Sanctuary, reminiscent of the apparition in 1432 and is the most visited in Italy after that of Loreto.

Particularly impressive, is the Madonna della Cornabusa Sanctuary,

Construction started in 1500, it is opened on Easter Monday and remains open throughout the summer. “...It’s the most beautiful sanctuary that exists, because the hand of man did not make it, but God himself". The words of Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, who became Pope John XXIII, of the Madonna di Cornabusa Sanctuary. A place that surely must be visited is Sotto il Monte, the birthplace of Pope John XXIII, a village full of history and paths that reminds us his early years in Bergamo.
