The views and atmosphere is definitely worth the drive from Milan. It's about 1.5 hours away, very nice and quiet, amazing views, lovely little street cafes. Perfect getaway from busy Milan !

I love Bergamo. It feels like time stood still. A snapshot of the brilliant days gone by. A funnicular ride up to the top and you are in Heaven. Go.

Great historic place to wander around, shop, eat, have a drink etc. Don't miss it! In addition you'll have some great views of the surrounding areas from the old city walls.

We visited this lovely old city on a rainy day. It's small and contained and very uncommercial unlike many other European walled cities. Duomo, church and main piazza are all in easy reach. It's hard to find by car without sat nav, but head for funicular which whilst expensive is fun.

This is the place to visit in bergamo. Lots of nice piazzas and churches. Get the funicular and save some energy to walk the walls and enjoy the spectacular views

Travelled by coach from Lake Como. Lovely place to visit. Walled City with lots of alleys to stroll around. Cathedral Square has lots of restaurants and ice cream parlours as do the side streets. Worth a visit
