Citta alta is historical place on the top of Bergamo hawing castle and walls around. There is a funicular to reach the place, also buses go there frequently. Good view to mountains, gardens, museums, restaurants and so on will not let you boring there. Highly recommended!

If you can manage the walk up to La Citta Alta, then do - you'll be rewarded with fine views both across Bergamo and to the mountains further north. If you take the funicular it takes you straight in the maze of streets which make up the town. There are some interesting sights up here but the real pleasure is... More

Every way you walk is uphill. Even when you park your car and walk, you are walking uphill. And somehow, when you return to your car, you are still walking up hill....so be prepared to walk. No 104 centimeter heels please. Lots to see and do whether it is history or food. Lots of local foods to purchase for treats... More

lovely old town with a cable car ride to the top, there is a bus also from the station. Lovely cobbled streets with old world shops, cafes and bars. Really nice restaurants. The view is amazing from the top, there is a second cable car that takes you up to the castle and the view is fabulous.

La Citta Alta is beautiful part of Bergamo, starting from the funicular ride to a charming piazza Vecchia, chapel Colleoni, st Maria Maggiore basilica to great Academia Carrara museum, we fell in love with that great part of Bergamo

Such a beautiful place. We had fabulous weather which helps but even so you cannot help but admire the architecture, history and quaint cobbles streets of the old city whatever the weather. The mountainous backdrop can be seen in all its glory if you take the lift or stairs (over 200!) of the civic tower. You can sit and people... More

Bergamo is the perfect city to enjoy a nice weekend or a longer stay. A city easily accessible from the airport of Orio al Serio, or for a day trip from Milan. It's situated on top of a hill with beautiful medieval and Renaissance palaces; is an ancient village with narrow streets uphill, lined with shops and various local. More... More

We visited the high part of the city just walking around and it's rich of charm; you can feel history from the buildings and the old stone floors of the roads. It's full of good restaurants and sites of interest. Relaxing!! Abbiamo visitato la città alta giusto camminando un pô in giro ed è ricca di charme; si può respirare... More
