You can get on the Funicular for free with the city bus ticket. I recommend getting the 2.5 euro day pass. This Funicular has much better views then the one from lower city to high city. The funicular runs every 15 minutes.

Children will love the ride. Views are outstanding, you do not even have to climb the castle. If you arrive to Bergamo by plane, just buy a 5 EURO 24h tickets, both funicolares are included.

Great views, price included in the Bergamo public transport ticket. If you want to buy the ticket here, there's only a machine. If you have 72-hour ticket just show it to the driver, and he/she will let you in.

Taking the funicolare up to San Vigilio is a must at least once in the duration of your visit. Before going up, one must realize that the view on Bergamo Citta Alta is best at sunset, when the sun is behind you and the colors...More
