“Pretty, but get higher for the best views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Walking along the walls in the sun is something that you really should do during your stay. For a better view though, head higher to the campanone.

“Fabulous views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

If you visit Bergamo, take a walk up into the old town of Citta Alta, the beautiful medieval part of the city which sits on a hill above the rest of the town. You can also use the funicular to get up to the old town, which is fun. The panoramic views from the wall are spectacular, so get your camera ready. The upper town is such a contrast from the lower town, so it really is worth taking time out to visit. Spend a day here is you can; it will not disappoint.

“Beautifull Venetian Walls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Città Alta is one of the most beautiful Medieval towns still not discovered by mass tourism. From Venetian Wall you can see the Lower town of Bergamo and even Mian. Every corner of Città Alta has something special. There are nice bars and restaurants and if you want to enjoy some relax you can sit in one of the benches along the wall.

“Stunning views of Lower Bergamo and the Plains”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

If you're travelling around Milan, DON'T MISS A TRIP to Bergamo Upper Town and its huge Cinta Muraria (Old Walls rounding the entire Upper Town). The Upper Town is boldly embraced by this ancient walls, and a walk along them will allow you to witness the majesty of this Medieval town, and acknowledge the wide plains of Bergamo province, spotted by churches and soft lights at night. Very romantic to seat along the Walls and have a talk with your beloved at sunset! Enjoy.
