Robin in Bergamo

Hey folks - hope you're all well.

This is a picture of Robin taken this weekend in Bergamo, a beautiful town near Milan, Italy.

The picture was taken on the site of Bergamo castle, and it looks out over the old city of Bergamo, which is set up on a hill above the new city. It's a stunning view from up there - round to the other side you can see right over to the Swiss alps (will post a picture of that later).

I thoroughly recommend that if anyone's ever in Italy and near Milan, they go over to Bergamo. Me and Lex have been twice now, it's just a gorgeous, relaxing place to spend a couple of days wandering the windy streets and taking in the feel of old Italy. It's amazing how few tourists you get there too - especially considering one of the Milan airports is a 15 minute bus ride from the centre of Bergamo.

What a gorgeous picture! I'm sure Robin had fun flying about up there!

I remember visiting that same castle - it is beautiful. Plus the air is cleaner than that in neighboring Milan.

Hey! It's been a while since I saw your blog...I've been planning a wedding of my very own! By the way, one of my best friends is planning a trip to Europe this summer. Any tips on things she can't miss? She will be in England, France, Germany, and I believe Italy.
