I’d recommend this funicular.....but not the next one which takes you further up and higher up into the hills.

The funicular way is an easy way to get up to the castle overlooking Bergamo. I had taken the bus and the ticket is good for a set time period so you can transfer to the funicular for free. I walked back down, but the...More

A nice way to travel. Did queue for a short while but it was well worth it. Views are good. Regular times until late and reasonably priced so well worth it.

Go up and enjoy views and mist of a winter day....church nearby and the about a mile hike up to village and the Volta Lighthouse. Steep climb but worth the views. And beware of snow and ice as you get up towards it.

This is the second funicolare in Bergamo, leading up to the area of San Vigilio. It's cheap and you can use it to get to the Castello di San Vigilio from where you will see the most beautiful views of Bergamo and its surroundings. There...More
