“Driving tour and lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

It was a bit cold there, but a brisk walk kept us warm enough to enjoy the driving and walking tour, the wine was an added benefit.

“Wet and empty in March”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I love the Citta Alta but on a wet March day, it is very bleak. Hard to find somewhere open for lunch.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

If in Bergamo do not miss visiting La Citta Alta. Take the funicolare for the fun of it. Also don't miss the second funicolare which goes even higher to San Vigilio........take it at the opposite end of the city........well worth the view

“The Accidental Tour Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

My wife and I took a side trip to the Upper City in Bergamo from Milan. The train from Milan took about 1 hour. Upon arriving in Bergamo there was a free public bus right outside the train station that transported us to the Fumiculare lift to take you to the Upper City. The short ride up the side of the steep hill was fun. Upon arriving at the church piazza a woman approached us from the "Bergamo For You" tour guides. Our guide, Samuela, explained that she was available for a 1.5 hour tour for 35 euro. We agreed and were very happy with her as a guide. Since we were on our own it was nice to have someone explain all the details of that ancient city. Contact information: www.bergamo4u.com or email info@bergamo4u.com. At the end she recommended 2 restaurants for us to choose from for a late lunch.

“Beautiful Bergamo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

You should not miss nice walking in La Citta Alta of Bergamo. Beatiful middle age buildings, charming spots and nice view over the Low City of Bergamo.
