I guess most travellers to Bergamo just use it as an airport stopover but I would recommend spending an extra day or two visiting the original old city.

We'd seen a fair few medieval hilltop towns but even so, this is still a fascinating and spectacular Citta, with impressive walls, beautiful buildings, delicious restaurants, markets, festivals and even a Funicular railway to take you up there. Great place for a stroll, there's a food & beverage festival up there most of the summer too, which serves great local... More

Beautiful, tranquil city. Walked around in 1 afternoon and discovered the city alone. Can't wait to return and eat more great food!

If you happen to stay in Milan definitely take a day to spend it in Bergamo. It's less than an hour away by train(from Milano Centrale). Pictures can't do justice to this beautiful little picturesque city. If you want to have lunch there definitely try eat in one of the trattorias there!

To put it short - just wander through the streets full of history, enjoy the big and small squares, step into the old churches, climb one of the towers for the views, grab a slize of pizza, follow the city walls, ride a funicular. In the evening sit at one of the restaurants, try some local delicacies and have a... More

A well conserved medieval city with roots to the roman period. Narrow streets with a very good variety of shops, bars and restaurant.

Small, medieval city with many little streets to wander around and easy to navigate. Lovely views out over the new city and beyond. A wide variety of restaurants serving local food at reasonable prices or just buy a slice of pizza for a snack!

As you wall around the winding streets of this old, amazing city, take it all in! The shop owners standing in their doorways welcoming tourists, the architecture everywhere that is a portal into the past, and the dogs being walked all around you. There is gelato on every corner, park benches and resting places abound, and you can easily spend... More
