“Best way to go to San Vigilio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This si the best way to get to San Vigilio.
It's fast and the scenery is nice.
On top of the hill of San Vigilio you'll find two restaurants, both very good.
Ideal to get out of the Sunday mess and to enjoy the hills of Bergamo

“Another means of transportation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

It's a bit funky way of getting to/from San Vigilio. I made my way up with scalette (a bit way around with stairs) and I must say it was much better experience (even though more tiring) than taking the funicolare.

“To get above the Citta Alta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

In addition to walking up to the park ( on the right when you exit the Funicolare), take a left when getting off the Fumicolare and wander around the narrow streets with views of villas and vineyards. Breathtaking.

“Commuting made fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Spent a week in Bergamo for work. Stayed in upper city and worked in lower. How fun to take the Funicolare every morning and evening. Quick, easy, gorgeous panoramas.

“Fantastic views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The higher Furnicular took us to the castle ruins which had 360 degree views. Its pity there was not a cafe on the higher level.
