I can agree with the reviews here. Visited in June. Locals helpful and friendly even with my poor Italian. Very patient and genuine people. Was good as I was touring with my elderly dad. We visited the upper City citta alta with the furnicular rail way and went on up to the castello in the second one. We visited the... More

This is really a hidden treasure, 3 euros on the bus from the airport to get into the city from Bergamo airport. If you want to get into Milan it takes 50 mins on the train costs about 6 euros from Bergamo. Can't see the Mecure Hotel to recommend it but it was fabulous. It is good for couples. families,...

Decided to visit Bergamo on our way to Milan after reading some nice reviews on Tripadvisor, and I was not disappointed! The old town area is a real gem with the beautifully kept historical buildings and stone pebbled streets. We hired a local guide (her name is Sam) and she was fantastic - took us through many of the 'secrets'... More

Bergamo is well worth a visit. Came to visit lakes and only stayed over to catch early flight. However, our day trip to Bergamo and the old city was so well worth it. There is so much to see in the old city we will be back. The little railway takes you there for a few euro and the views... More

I travelled to Bergamo expecting to pass a few interesting hours in an historic town. The outside of the cathedral and basilica are impressive but my word when i walked inside, I was almost speechless at the beautiful paintings and frescos. I really was blown away. Outside there are cobbled streets to explore which contain many traditional shops selling delicious... More

While sightseeing in the Citta Alta or Upper city of old Bergamo, take a wander to the far corner of Spalto di San Giacomo. This is best of a night time because of the array of city lights from the Lower main Citta. This would have to be almost the highest point in Citta Alta and it has a couple... More

We went to visit Bergamo for a day at the beginning of August. The old part of the city sits at the top of the hill and the narrow streets are just beautiful. Very clean! You feel you are a million miles away from anywhere! The views from the city walls are fantastic. It's really peaceful here. There is a... More

The centre of Bergamo is a shop window admirers delight, but for me the pleasure was taking the fernicuar railway to the upper town and walking around a 1000 year of history with some stunning views

During a business trip we had the pleasure of visiting Bergamo, Italy. Let me say the people there were wonderful. The food was different from standard American, including goat and horse on the meat trays. Breakfast was typically continental offering a wide variety of items to choose from. While there we were treated to various parts of the city, both... More

We took the train from MIlan to Bergamo (less than an hour) and then the city bus and funicular up to the old Alta Citia. While wandering in the central area we were apporached by Samuela about having a tour of the old town. Glad we decided to hire her. Samuela speaks great English and has a passion fro her... More
