“Bergamo, City of the Thousands”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Nothing to dislike if you know how to get about. They now have a new Tourist Centre opposite the Railway and Bus Stations they will tell you all you need to know.
The Rocca contains the Garibaldi Museum as Bergamo supplied over one third of the thousamds following Garibaldi in his expedition. Worth visiting. The view of the Po Valley from there is superb. During clear sunny mornings you can actualy see the Virging Mary statue on top of the Milan Duomo, 30 miles away.

“I don't know if it is worth visiting”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

It is a nice walk to reach the Rocca and walk around the remembrence park (it is only five minutes from the funicolar station in citta alta) , but the museum situated there is rather dissapointing. Italy has a lot much more beautiful castles to show than this one...

The Risorgimento museum was a pleasant, and informative, way to spend on hour or so in Bergamo.

“Few hours to visit”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Very good experience during last week end on November. Before a visit in lower city, then in higher. I suggest all by feet, comfortable surely. Don't forget your camera... photos a lot!
