Very nice using those funiculars and some of the stations were very modern and quite easy to understand buying your tickets but more difficult on the top when you needed pennies

We arrived on Saturday and there were long queues in the hot sun. We didn't wait longer than 15 minutes and it was worth the ride because the city Alto is worth it. Check out the funicular cafe at the top for brilliant views.

A cheap and fast way to get up to the old city of Bergamo. We payed only 10,40 euro for four people and it took about 3 minutes to get to the top. The price includes the ride down as well.

The funicularo is a fun way to travel up to Bergamo Alta, which as a whole comes highly recommended for a visit. The funicularo is also fun for children.
