On of Italys hidden gems, truly breathtaking with fantastic views. Many people use Bergamo to commute to Milan, Venice etc and miss out this wonderful opportunity. 20 min walk from the train station through the new town with some lovely cafes and you reach to cable cars that will take you up to a world time has forgotten.

That's a part of Bergamo you don't really expect. It's like Bergamo has 2 different sides. This one is definitely worth discovering...

OMG this town was fabulous. It was so quaint and charming - the epitome of a medieval town with cobblestone streets, everyone just ambling around, window shopping, people watching. We loved Bergamo Alta Citta and apparently so do the locals as it was packed with families the day we visited. If I could live anywhere in Italy I would probably... More

A beautiful old city with the most amazing views. So much history and quaint streets to amble around and stumble on. Access by the funicular or walk up both amazing views. Going to the old castle is worth it as spectacular views and just so peaceful, except for the bells of course!

Beautifully placed, with heart-breaking views (not depending on weather conditions or season). It' s wonderful to spend some time wandering in the narrow streets with many nice, old buildings, statues and cobblestones. Beautiful center with a basilica, churches and fountain. Must try a ride with small-gauge train and try local specialitities.

Perched on a hill above the modern city of Bergamo, La Citta Alta (the old city) offers a step back into history with its narrow cobble-stoned streets, attractive piazzas, and interesting architecture (old churches, towers, and buildings). An excellent place to stroll and dine.

Beautifull old town, perfect for walk. Nice view from city wall. Many small nice shops. This city has a special atmosphere. In winter in the summer the same beauty.
