If you visit Bergamo you must take the cable car to the top of the city, it's a lovely trip up each of the levels and the view is amazing once you get to the top. I would recommend this as a day excursion. There are lots of interesting shops and restaurants on the way up the hill.

Via della mura offers a spectacular view! The city is packed with places to eat and drink. You should have at least 2-3 days to explore the city and it's surroundings...

Easy to find our way round in the city alta. Nice with small shops, narrow streets, cafes and old churches. This is the highlight of Bergamo

The old town is very picturesque. Spent a day strolling around the narrow streets, enjoying coffee and of course great Italian gelato.

we only stayed 1 night in Citta Alta, and we regretted it. We will definitely visit this old town again. We've had great walk around Citta Alta... and did some shopping ;-))

Great place to visit with lovely views. Nice and relaxing to walk around. Plenty of places to eat and have a coffee. Shops are great. Make sure you try the polenta cakes they are to die for! We went up the funicular every day. Really enjoyed our time here.

Italian advised my to go there for a walk and dinner. I took the funicular to reach the old city and it is probably the best way as it is very difficult to parc in the old town. The architecture is very nice and typical, walk is very pleasant as cars are not allowed in most of the streets. There... More
