The town is on the hill with very nice view from there. There is a direct buss from airport of Bergamo. Alta Citta is the last buss stop. The town has a lot of well preserved medieval buildings, narrow streets, small shops. If you have a time before your flight, is worth to see it.

Packed full of history, museums, shops and restaurants this area is perfect for a stroll. Take a trip up the civic tower for a commanding view of the city and beyond.

Well from the outside of the city there's a breath taking view of the lower town. As you enter into the city it's narrow shaded streets which are quite cold in winter. The atmosphere of the shops is nice, plenty of food to chose from. But on the whole there's not much to see. So if you're planning to visit... More

In opposite to the lower town the upper town has got very nice atmosphere, narrow streets goes up and down (ok, mostly up...), small shops, bakeries, coffe shops. Historical museum has got his own view-tower, from where must be beautiful view (if there is no fog...) Of course the atmosphere is made by classical architecture and religious monuments too. And...

We did a day trip to Bergamo from Milan (from Central Station). It is a short train trip (around one hour) and costs around 12 euros round trip. Once we arrived, we walked directly to the furnicular (about a 20 minute walk) and went up to the old city. The old city is magnificent.... gorgeous cathedrals and churches, quaint cobble... More

Despite being extremely foggy with very poor visibility the atmosphere around this quaint old medieval town is a must for anyone travelling to Bergamo. It has a wide choice of good restaurants suitable for any pocket. The main square is beautiful and it was nicely decorated for christmas.

I once heard that "i bergamaschi" (people from Bergamo) were hidden a little gem, from tourists and other italians. It's kind of true...this was a total surprise to me. Bergamo's "modern town" is nothing special, but when you get to the old town....well, you gotta see this. Take the funicular to the old town. Just stroll around, eat a good... More

After getting out of the cable car, I felt as if I jumped into the medieval time. Everything is tasty. There's full of restaurants and good tasted shops. I'll absolutely come back here again.
