Fodor's Review

Bergamo is home to an art collection that's surprisingly rewarding given its size and remote location. Many of the Venetian masters are represented—Mantegna, Bellini, Carpaccio (circa 1460–1525/26), Tiepolo (1727–1804), Francesco Guardi (1712–93), Canaletto (1697–1768)—as well as Botticelli (1445–1510). The museum is undergoing remodeling through at least the end of 2014, but a selection of works can be seen at Palazzo della Regione in Piazza Vecchia, Bergamo

One of Italy’s most important art galleries, it was founded by a scholar and collector named Count Giacomo Carrara (1714-1796). The collection is home to renowned masterpieces of art: works by Sandro Botticelli, Raphael, Titian, Mantegna, Giovanni Bellini, Vincenzo Foppa, Pisanello, and major artists working in Bergamo (Lorenzo Lotto, Giovan Battista Moroni, Fra’ Galgario and Piccio).
