I really enjoyed this part of Bergamo. You can feel and breath the true Italian art. Città Alta is a kind of magic with all these small cafè and restaurant. Nice walking and the cable car experience.

The old city is beautifully located on the hill and has many interesting places. It is quiet and very romantic.

A dream place to spend 2-3 hours walking around, enjoying the atmosphere and imagining how life was within its walls some centuries before! Great venues to indulge yourself with good red wine and tipical products from the region.

Do not get misled by a very common thinking that Bergamo is nothing more than an airport location used exclusively to go directly to Milan. I assure you that it is not. Just let La Citta Alta to serve as a proof.

I lived in Brescia for a year and I never visited Bergmao and I regret that now. It is such a pretty place, with acres of history and beautiful places to stroll and eat.

I only had few hours to visit in November. The views supposed to be impressive, but it was already dark. Everything was closed with only few people wandering the streets. It was still nice, but try to get there when there is light.

La Citta Alta is the perfect place to visit for 2-3 hours if you are in Bergamo. If you want to arrive here coming from the new city you need to take the funicular for only 1.3 euro one way. The streets in Citta Alta are really amazing and there are several shops, restaurants and churches that you can visit.... More

No, not the Harley Quinn (you've seen that movie, or the cartoon, or the comics etcetcetc) So not that one - I mean the real historic one... Gues if these caro-coloured body clad "comic figure" s give you unvoluntary shiver or fear - Alta Cita of Bergamo will not be the best place on a rainy dark day or night,... More
