If someone does not like to walk too much, this line is the perfect solution for him. It's worth taking the Funicolare to the hill of S. Vigilio. It runs up and down every 30 minutes. The train is comfortable, the journey takes a while and allows you to admire the panorama of Bergamo. You can look at the Citta Alta from above. The best view of the city. Tickets can be purchased at ticket machines, at the ticket office, but you can also use a 24-hour ticket for public transport in Bergamo.

Get higher up the mountain to visit the castle, dine out and get a spectacular view looking down on the medieval city below. Tickets for this can be used on the other funicolar in bergamo, and the buses too, so don't keep buying a ticket per journey. Very well run!

If you dont have the time to visit the upper city by foot it is the easyest way to do that. I strongly recommend that you dont do it like that. Go by foot. Arm yourself with a comfortable pair of shoos and enjoy the trip. This way you can stop whenever you want. It ia not easy, bring a bottle of whater and dont stop untill unreach san vigilio castle. It will take you a full day.

Just off the Colle Aperto gate, you can take the second funicolare up the hill for views over Citta Alta and all of Bergamo. An inexpensive option for amazing views. If you have a bus daily pass it is included (both funicolares are).

This funicular will whisk you up San Vigilio hill. Directly outside the funicular exit you will have a panoramic viewpoint that gives a wonderful view over Bergamo's Citta Alta (and the lower city a bit further away). You can also see how the foothills of the Alps transform into the flatlands of the Po plain.
