The province borders north on the province of Sondrio , east on Brescia , south on Cremona , west on Milan , Monza and Brianza and Lecco and covers 2723 km².
The northern part of the country is characterized by the southern limestone and Dolomite Alps ( Bergamasque Alps , up to 3582 m high), which extend to the capital and between which the beautiful Seriana and Brembana valleys lie; the southern part belongs to the Lombard plain.

The higher regions are rich in pastures, but the once flourishing cattle breeding is now poor; In the plains and in the hilly region the cultivation of maize, vines and mulberry trees dominate. Grain, rice and flax are also grown in the province, which also contains quite a bit of forest. The hunt for game, but also for songbirds , is very popular here.
