In Bergamo Alta, the Piazza Vecchia is flanked by museums, churches and residences in some fine examples of Italian architecture. At the heart of the piazza is a large fountain. Children run freely, chasing pigeons and riling up the dogs to a backdrop of splendid history. Gelato is everywhere, and so is the spectacular light as the sun begins to set.
We paused to take it all in at Cafe del Tasso, a casual place that offers antipasti along with its drinks.
