Hertz at Bergamo Airport

Tucked away in the Lombardy region of northern Italy, Bergamo is an Italian treasure. From the upper and lower levels of the city - Alta and Bassa - to the illustrious Venetian walls which surround it, Bergamo is endlessly captivating.

Plan a visit and, with car rental from Bergamo Airport, it's just a short drive to this beautiful town. With a car at your disposal, you'll be able to explore the wider region, which includes the chic city of Milan and exquisite Lake Como.

To make your journey as simple as possible, browse our range of vehicles online and book in advance. There are no hidden extra charges to pay and our best price guarantee means that if you find Hertz car rental for a lower price, we'll refund the difference.

Driving in and around Bergamo

Nestled in the foothills of the Italian Alps, Bergamo is an exquisite hidden gem. Located in the heart of the Lombardy region, it's neighbored by higher profile cities such as Milan, Brescia and Verona, as well as the serene Lake Como, so renting a car is the ideal way to explore the wider region.

From Bergamo Airport, it's a short drive of approximately 4 miles via the SP116 and SP591 to reach the heart of town. Parking is limited in the upper part of Bergamo - the Citta Alta - but more available and accessible in Citta Bassa, the lower. Like many Italian towns and cities, Bergamo has traffic restrictions in place, and you can't drive in limited traffic zone (ZTL) areas without authorization, as only residents are permitted to drive in the area. If your hotel is within a ZTL, contact them once you have your rental car as they’ll be able to organize access for you.

If you're planning to venture beyond Bergamo, the options are tempting. Milan, the self-styled fashionista capital of Italy, is a little over an hour away by car on the E64. This is a city of design, technology, art and sophistication, where glamor and elegance take center stage.

Using Bergamo as a starting point, drive north on the E64 and within two hours you'll be at Lake Como. The third largest lake in Italy, Como is an oasis of serenity. It's 20 miles wide, set against a mountainous backdrop and has a number of exquisite towns, villas, gardens and walks dotted along its landscape.

Tourists and visitors from the USA driving in Italy will need an international driver's permit. The road rules require motorists to drive on the right-hand side of the road, and seatbelts must be worn by the driver and all passengers. Speed limits vary, from 80 mph on Italian freeways to 56 mph on local roads and 30 mph in built-up areas.

A quick guide to Bergamo

Sitting atop a hill in northern Italy, Bergamo is relatively undiscovered. As it's off the beaten track, that does mean fewer crowds during peak seasons, which is part of its appeal. Bergamo is also packed full of grand buildings, glorious examples of fine art and breathtaking attractions.

Bergamo’s bold basilica

Stroll around Bergamo and you’ll be inspired by its magnificent buildings. You’ll want to see and experience everything - but one thing you can't miss is the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. Imposing from the outside, the interior is intricate with artwork and frescoes, giving every inch color and life. The level of detail is staggeringly impressive.

Other notable landmarks are close - next door, in fact. To one side is the elegant Colleoni Chapel while across Piazza Duomo is the ornate Duomo di Bergamo, the cathedral.

Give yourself plenty of time just to wander around Bergamo, noting the contrast between the city's two levels. In Citta Alta, meander through the streets, pausing to relax in the picturesque Piazza Vecchia. Listen to the soothing hum of passers-by and the bells of the cathedral when you stop at a traditional trattoria for lunch.

In Citta Bassa, the pace changes from relaxed to vibrant. Here, you'll find a varied retail area with many well-known high street stores sprinkled along Via XX Settembre.

The underground world

Delve below ground level and you'll discover a secretive world concealed underneath the city's streets.

There's a fascinating network of underground tunnels beneath the upper town, and inquisitive visitors can access them through guided tours. Walk under the Venetian Walls to see some remarkable features including stalactites, suspended from the vaulted ceilings, hanging at three meters in length, and the Fountain of Lantro, a vast water tank that was part of an aqueduct serving the town.

The eerie San Giovanni Casemate housed soldiers during wartime. Peer through the cannon openings and imagine what it must have been like during a time of conflict. The cannons are no longer there but the strange atmosphere conjures up the distant sounds of battle and the whiff of gunpowder.

Make for Milan

Bergamo is so close to Milan that a trip to the city known as the fashion capital of Italy is a must. Milan is traditional, cosmopolitan, fast-paced and cultural all at the same time, a wonderful city. Head to its iconic landmark, the Duomo. This is Milan's cathedral, the second largest church in Italy. Take a guided tour up to the rooftops and terraces, admiring the Duomo's spires as they rise majestically into the skyline. Plan ahead and bag a ticket to visit the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, which houses The Last Supper, Leonarda da Vinci's magnum opus.

Spend the afternoon window-shopping in Quadrilatero della Moda, Milan's ultra-chic fashion district, boasting illustrious names including Prada, Gucci and Versace. In the evening, dine on delicious street food fresh from the famous Luini in the Centro Storico and indulge in creamy gelato before taking in a performance at Teatro La Scala, one of the world's finest opera houses.

Book car rental from Bergamo Airport to explore not only one of Italy's most underrated cities but the delights of the Lombardy region and its legendary lakes too.
