We had some time before our flight and decided to take a walk to Bergamo. I was surprised that the town and the Cita Alta is so near. I should to remark that we like hiking and walking and usually spending our time by walking in the nature parks or cities.

Even if your trip won't last more than a day, Città Alta is the place to go to prove you have visited Bergamo. I recommend walking to Città Alta by taking the stairs from the cable (funicolare) up to Porta San Giacomo and then continue along the walls till Colle Aperto. You'll love it.

Love the views and the fresh air up at the top. The castle gardens are small but pleasant and the cafes and restaurants worth a trip to the top.

Citta Alta is amazing place with small streets, a lot of bars, dining places, some tourist shops, i liked just walking there. From Citta Bassa you can research by public transport bus or funicular. Lovely place!

Enjoyable medieval town and historical center of Bergamo. It is worthwhile to park your car and walk all over the narrow streets to find and discover new sights and places of interest. Must eat Polenta con osei, a sweet tical of Bergamo with the color of polenta and small birds over it

If you have stopover in Bergamo you should really visit the old part of Bergamo. You can climbe with your own foot or go by Funicolare - cable railway if your bit lazy.

Unforgettable place, particularly during the holiday season (December, New Year). Good site of public transport (connecting with the center of the new part of Bergamo and airport). I recommend!
