"Città alta" (upper city), a hilltop medieval town, surrounded by 17th-century defensive walls. The town is connected to the "Città bassa" (lower city) by funicular/cable car, roads, and foot-paths.
Parking spaces are very limited in the upper city so it is better to take the funicular or the bus (10 minutes n from the railway station).
Numerous places of interest including:
Cittadella (Citadel), Piazza Vecchia (old square),Palazzo della Ragione, Palazzo Nuovo , Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore (Saint Mary Major),Cappella Colleoni (Colleoni chapel), annexed to Santa Maria Maggiore, is a masterwork of Renaissance architecture and decorative art...........
The small snaky roads with an infinity of typical Italian shops.....

We spent our last few hours here as we were departing from bergamo airport after staying in milano for 4 days. Had i known it was so beautiful with its small pebbled roads and small quaint shops i would of stayed at least one whole day and night. This was really a stunning place with so much character and lovely old buildings.

The minute you step off of the funicular (don't hike up!) you'll experience an enchanting series of winding roads and little shops. Find the pizza/pane shop near the main square for an economical wonder of a meal.

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! I'm not a person to give out amazing reviews unless I truly mean it. Bergamo is beautiful, people are lovely and the city is small but charming. Great place for a break and just relax and indulge in cheese, hams and wine.

A truly beautiful city! A city full of charisma, good restaurants and beautiful architecture. Parking is difficult so the cable car is a good way to get there from the new part of Bergamo.
