Italy Gay Tour - Cascate del Serio Falls


Day 3 - Monday, September 18, 2023
Bergamo - Cascate del Serio Falls
Morning: departure for Cascate del Serio (waterfalls).

The ‘Cascate del Serio’ are artificial waterfalls, which flow only with human support, in certain times of the year. Their opening is scheduled in compliance with the Regional Authority. We are therefore unable to guarantee that the ‘Cascate’ will be seen flowing. Nevertheless, we include them in this trip, as a movie set, as a trekking experience in the Natural Park of the Serio Waterfalls.
Dressing Code: trekking shoes (no high heels nor slippers, nor sneakers. Trekking clothing)

Here is when in the movie the two protagonists run, while “Mystery of love” song by Sufjan Stevenson plays, a slope at the base of a waterfall screaming. When the Falls are closed you can visit one of the shelters of Brembana Valley or Seriana Valley.

Free time for lunch in Valbondione.

Departure for Bergamo (Città Alta – High City)
Bergamo is positioned North of Milan. The oldest area is called ‘Città Alta’ (High City). It is originally a Roman town, characterized by paved streets leading to the Duomo. It is surrounded by Venetian walls and it can be easily reached by a funicular. Here the Romanic Basilica and the huge Colleoni Chapel with Tiepolo frescoes worth the visit.

Visit the movie settings (Rosate Square, Duomo Square, and Natural Science University) on your own. Here Elio and Oliver with their friends listen to Richard Butler among vintage cars parked in Piazza Rosate and dance in Santa Maria Maggiore. Then they move to Piazza Duomo and kiss passionately leaning against the wall of the University of Sciences, letters, and arts.
