Realy nice old city and although it is not that big as one can imagine it is good for food, pizza and ice cream. Santa Maria Maggiore and Duomo are a must to visit.

Set aside a few hours or a full day to enjoy the cobblestone streets and small shops. Panoramic views. Very crowded when we were there - it was Pasquetta (day AFTER Easter) and everyone was enjoying a leisurely stroll through the town.

Really beautifull and charming old town that stole my heart. The atmosphere on the streets was unique. There are so many places to see, but for me the best thing was just to wonder around and feel the atmosphere. The views were stunning.

It would be impossible not to go the Citta Alta as a tourist in Bergamo. I guess for most, like us, it is the reason for visiting. It is fairly small, but I doubt if it would disappoint, with its views, squares, medieval buildings and narrow streets. The main issue, I would imagine, is that it could become a victim... More

La Citta Alta is one of the nicest old areas I have visited. Not very large but full of life: terraces, small restaurants, people. I only regret that I had only few hours to enjoy it.

Up on the hill you walk through narrow streets among churches and other large old buildings and you get a good feel how it was to live in an old Italian town hundreds of years ago. The main church is absolutely stunning and the walk around will take you about 1h to fully enjoy and absorb a bit of historic... More

A medieval city surrounded by Venetian fortifications, the upper city is a must see location during any visit to Bergamo. Away from the beautiful, but crowded Piazza Vecchia and its surrounding streets, there are tremendous views available from the city walls towards the mountains or overlooking the lower city. It's worth getting the funicular on the ascent just for the... More

This is a must and great to mooch about on a Sunday morning. The Cathedral is amazing and there's a great little tourist train. Get the second funiculor up to the remains of the old castle to get some amazing views. Fabulous on a sunny day!

This area is absolutely stunning. It's like stepping back in time. The cobbled streets, wine bars, restaurants and the square are just like out of a classic Italian movie beautiful. It's so romantic and has a great buzz about it. I cannot wait to return here.
