Go up with the cable railway or with the stairs; on of them start at the left of cable station and lead to the monumental gate 'San Giacomo'. Go ahead to Via San Giacomo street and reach the 'Piazza Mercato delle Scarpe' square, then follow 'Via Gombito' street. The first in the right will lead you to 'San Francesco' convent.... More

Authentic, unspoilt, pleasant but only for those who can walk for hours on cobblestone, slopes and good sense of direction

Bergamo was never on my radar but having my partner there for 3 months resulted in 2 visits. Citta Alta is stunning, nice bars and cafes and great food. Definitely a gem.

This is a breathtakingly lovely place, despite the many tourists. You actually need at least 2 days to visit all the muséums and walk around all the small side streets

a beautiful place with such history and you could easily spend a whole day exploring and having lunch, or just admiring the views from the top.

What a town, it's amazing and still feels quite authentic. There's some touristy shops but mostly "real" shops with food and crafts. I advise taking bus 1 to the last stop, visiting the museums there and buying an ice cream at the gelateria when you walk toward the rest of the town. Sit on the square and visit all the... More

What a wonderful surprise. We were tipped off by someone (Italian) to go to the old town and thankfully we did. A small wonderland of antiquity. Very quaint and easy to walk around. A beautiful old town.

Such romance with Bergamo Alta. Seems that you're on top of the world. In summer just grab a gelato or a nice cold beer and enjoy medieval italy. Went also at night and it was romantic!! except I had the kids!!

we strolled around this medieval city marveling its old and well preserved Borghis. it was very quiet on these tiny streets, very picturesque. one will feel the history behind these houses. small cafes and restaurants and shops add colors and flavors to this historical borghis. a must in bergamo

My wife and I started going to Bergamo several years ago. For those not in the know Bergamo the airport is where Ryanair fly you in the guise of going to Milan. Bergamo is both a modern and an old city. The old city, i.e the high city, La Citta' Alta, is fascinating. You can get there from the new... More
