Italian Bergamo

In the spring 2012 we've taken a three day trip to Italy. Our first destination was a beautiful town of Bergamo, then we visited Venice and at the end found ourselves in Milan.

Once you got up there. You can see a great view on the city. The odd thing is that mist. At first I thought it was smoke, but then I was told that this is a mist that is created by the high level of humidity in this region. We've seen this mist all our way to Venice and Milan as well.

But still with public transport in it. The last time I saw such a thing was when I visited Athens.

The old town is quite small and in just about 20 minutes we crossed it all end ended up on the other side of the hill.

It was an early March but the weather was wonderful. You can see closest mountains rising on the horizon.
