Whenever in Bergamo, go there!
Nov 2021
We went to the Città Alta twice, climbing the way up on foot each time, but taking different roads. It's a stiff walk, but most rewarding.
The view over Bergamo from high up is stunning. The old town itself is pretty large and offers ample opportunity to dander through the old, often narrow streets. Absolutely well worth a visit.

Visit the old town

Only a small city but if you're in the area then it is worth a visit. The cable car into the old town is cool. Tight traditional streets and a lot of artisan shops

Picture perfect area
Nov 2021 • Solo
Take the funicular up and immediately it is like stepping back in time. The small narrow medieval style streets lead to the central areas of Piazza Vecchia and Piazza del Duomo. Surround by churches, civic buildings, restaurants and towers this is a lovely area to explore at a leisurely pace. It is a easy walk back down to Bergamo Bassa and you get to enjoy some great views along the way.

Historical atmosphere

Citta Alta has a nice atmosphere, with narrow old streets and cozy terraces and restaurants. It is perfect for a long and relaxing walk, to discover city historical landmarks.

Nice atmosphere.

After a ride on the funicular we were in the upper and old part of Bergamo. Old historic buildings, little cafes and restaurants, shops and fantastic churches - they're all there. Walk around and enjoy the atmosphere. Really well worth a visit.

Take the funicular
Sep 2021 • Solo
This is such a beautiful place! I was so delighted! I went to Bergamo only because of the airport with cheap flights and what a good surprise. I took the cable car to the upper town but you can also take the bus. The architecture was very pleasant for me to watch and the vibes in the square were simply great on a Sunday afternoon! Beautiful sunset from the city walls!

Wonderful Historic Town
Aug 2021
We really enjoyed our short stay in Bergamo. Our hotel was in the more modern lower city, but a short lift by the funicula to the historic center is fabulous. There are a lot of shops and restaurants. The Basisilica di Santa Maria Maggione alone is worth the trip.
