What a gorgeous place this is! In our opinion it outdoes so many better known Italian cities. Bergamo is a truly stunning gem.

Truly enjoyed this city. Wonderful people, food, buildings to visit. If you want to stay away from the heavy tourist areas or just need a break from the crowds this is a perfect solution. If I only had limited time in Italy I would not go out of my way unless I was flying in and out of Bergamo airport... More

When in Bergamo it's a must to visit this old part of the city, situated high above the more modern and busy city center. You can walk up, you can take a funicular, the bus or a taxi - either way you will enjoy walking around in the narrow streets and perhaps also take the second funicular to the citadel... More

Awesome views! We went really up with that little tram. Historical center of Citta Alta was also wonderful with little shops and restaurants. There is no point going up there with the car, use the tram. The tram operators are so nice and friendly italian gentlemen. Gelato is the best up there!

This is a lovely place to spend a short break. It has history,architecture ,local cuisine,character. Plenty to keep you occupied during the day,walking the walls, visiting the museum.Then at night it becomes lively. plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and if you want ride the funicular to the new town.

Having visited Milan on business last year, I found myself in the region again. This time I chose to stay in Bergamo and to see what this city had to offer. As a photographer I jumped at the chance to visit Citta Alta (High City) and I was so glad to have done so. I took the funicular cable car... More
