One-day car hire from Bergamo

we're arriving in Bergamo early morning and contemplating hiring a car for the day before heading off to Milan where we're staying. Would this be a good way to see Bergamo and one of the lakes, or would we be better with public transport?

Well, visiting Bergamo and a lake on the same day is rather tight IMO.

However I think you'll be better off with public transport. Bergamo is not a very big city and you can get around very well by bus and funicular. Most of the shuttle buses from the airport go up to Città Alta ( the old town ). When you have visited it you can walk down to Città Bassa or take the funicular - or bus - down.

Once you have visited it you can take the train to Lecco on Lake Como ( about 40 min ). Bergamo railway station is in Bergamo Bassa. The shuttle bus stops in front of it before continuing up to to Città Alta
