Nice place, too much turists but it's always a good place to spend the weekend! Try for dinner the original "Scarpinocc" or "Casonsèi", are a sort of ravioli but really tasty and tyipical of bergamo!

Very unique. You definitely need more than a single visit. Spent several hours each day wandering the old city. Incredible views.

Citta Alta is a wondrous place. The city on the hill is filled with fabulous cathedrals, lovely shops and "hidden" side streets. If you are able, take the path up and enjoy the scenery below.

Beautiful old walled city - worth the 40 minute walk round walls - I and my two children got the funicular railway up - dogs only allowed muzzled so my husband walked but worth the visit as the old city is simply beautiful

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
