Milan Bergamo Airport is fairly small so there is not a great selection of shops, but there is a small selection of retail outlets where you can purchase duty free goods, souvenirs, clothing and books, newspapers and magazines for your flight.You will also find the dott.Finazzi Pharmacy in the public area of the arrivals hall (telephone: +39 035 319550)
The good newis that there are plenty of shops in Bergamo itself to choose from with the Orio Centre being one of the biggest shopping centres in Italy with over 200 shops, restaurants, bars, a supermarket, a nursery where children can play, cash dispensers, underground parking , restrooms and views of Citta Alta and the Bergamo Orio al Serio Airport.
