A high level Bed & Breakfast in the historic centre of Bergamo

Medals Gold

Visited and recommended by Petrolheads Welcome

About

If any venue could be described as welcoming Petrolheads, this has to be it.

Owned and run by Vittoria Agostini, daughter of motorcycling legend Giacomo, this is a B&B steeped in automotive history. ‘Ago’ has an unrivalled collection of motorcycling World and Italian championships, some of which memorabilia is on display in reception.

The villa is situated in the hills of Bergamo, roughly half way between lakes Como and Isio (Sebino) in northern Italy. It’s also a short hop along the A4 to Brescia, home of the Mille Miglia.

We visited in early 2020 and of course checked out the parking facilities. The underground garage is as stunningly well appointed as the rest of the building: marble floor, inset lights and gold pillars (garage envy anyone?). The access is via a tight turn on the road outside and then a fairly steep ramp to the garage door. A Jaguar XK8 parked in the corner was confirmation that it’s not too steep (we weren’t driving on this occasion, but we intend to come back in our classic car).

There is a long passage from the garage leading to the accommodation building that is also a photo gallery of Giacomo Agostini’s career… as if you needed your appetite whetting!

Vittoria herself is utterly charming and she is ably supported by husband and wife team, Chris and Mildred from the Phillipines. Mildred’s cakes at breakfast are fantastic!
