Your mind eases and relaxes in there. We stayed there for some time with my friends and enjoyed the pure nature!

Whilst walking away from the centre of the Citta Alta, we stumbled across signs to these gardens and decided to take a look. You need to walk past a gate which looks like the entrance and then you will see another opening which has a big board up. However as there is no fee for this attraction, I really don't think it matters if you go in the exit first and come out of the entrance, it's not as though there is a particular order.

I have to say this was one of my favourite days. It was late September with a mix of the end of Summer and the start of Autumn. It was very quiet and peaceful and it was lovely just walking round looking at the plants, admiring the views and having the odd sit down on a variety of great look out benches. I actually don't know much about plants or flowers, (can't even grow tomatoes), but I just loved looking at them all. The air is particularly fresh and you can almost feel your lungs filling up with clean air. The views are very Swiss and with the odd large houses dotted around, we enjoyed playing "which house would we like."

If you like cactus you'll love the greenhouse full of them and look out for the growing pineapples and bamboo wind chimes.

There is a loo there, I saw a sign but don't know what it's like. Refreshments are not available so either take snacks and water or bare in mind before going.

As for the steps maybe a problem if you are elderly, have health problems or mobility problems otherwise nothing to it. And there are places and benches for you to have a rest - frankly if you've made it as far as the entrance (which involves a hill), you should be OK!

From the Citta Alta its a short walk up to the botanic garden, but it's all uphill! I've been a few times over the years, its quite small and not that spectacular. What I like is that it provides some good views of the vale behind Bergamo, its rare to see other people there, occassionally you see a gardener sort of person just getting on with a bit of gardening and most important it's a lovely place just to spend half an hour or more relaxing and enjoying the the peace and tranquility overlooking the sub-alps.

We went there on a Sunday morning, and it was delightful. Apart from the botanical aspect, the views are gorgeous, and being in the morning, it was quiet. There are nooks and corners and seating areas, and it must be lovely to live near there and go and sit and read a book or just enjoy the peace and quiet.

A lovely little garden perched on the hillside just outside the walls. You'll need to like gardens but some curious plants and quiet places to sit and enjoy the view

It's quite a climb. Check the opening hours because outside the season the garden is closed in the middle of the day, and you have to walk longer to get to the main entrance. It's free of charge, really tiny, but the views are great. There's a Japanese citrus tree at the entrance (in the autumn it has aromatic fruits) and strawberry trees just next to it.

Cute little botanical garden on the side of the hill, with a great view over the town. A couple of little ponds with water lilies and an interesting time line of plants as you climb the stairs to the entrance.

It's a bit of a climb to get to this small open air botanical garden. There is a tiny artificial lake and plenty of benches where you can sit and read or enjoy the quiet, but not much else to do. In the warm times of the year beware of mosquitoes.
You may want to skip this place in favor of Castello di San Vigilio, which offers less privacy, but has much better views, much better toilettes, and fewer mosquitoes.

Have visited this garden 4 or 5 times now over the past few years and have seen it slowly evolve. Access is up a steep flight of steps and a slope. Very tranquil place with good views. Exit is down a different path through a herb/veg garden and a greenhouse with cacti. Interesting 'eco' toilet, drinks machine available at the top.
