You can wander around yourself and see the buildings that are being restored and a small display about the restoration works. But it isn't really well developed as a tourist attraction. Check the opening hours if you are out of season.

Visited the monastero last week and loved it. At night time in the summer there is a great ambience due to the outdoor pop-up restaurants- serving great pizzas and a few other lovely dishes! Drinks were also of a very good quality. The monastery itself...More

We wandered in here almost by accident, as this seems to be one of the Bergamo university campus buildings these days and is thus redundant as a church. Just inside is an open courtyard and then behind that another courtyard. Evidence of faded glory with...More
