While you're busy exploring downtown Bergamo, it's easy to overlook La Citta Alta in a distance. Don't. Walk over to the funicular with your all-day bus pass and take a ride up. It may be the most beautiful part of the city.
Take a tour, if you can. Our innkeepers at Bombyx mentioned that this area was rich in history, built in the 17th century with buried Roman-esque ruins. Take your camera. The view is breathtaking.
The area is very peaceful, since it's more of a residential area to those who can afford to live there, so please respect the personal properties that are up there.
When you descend back to the base, treat yourself to gelato from the shop at the base of the hill.
