Mure Venete are imposing even today. You can get a great view of the modern part of the city from there as well as admire some of the impressive gates (San Giacomo is my favorite!).

Wall was build for defensive reasons, but nowadays provides a unique view on lower city. It's several hundreds of meters long, anytime you want you can get a stop to enjoy incredible view.

Catch the funicular up.....and then the wall stairs down. If you don’t like walking the. I’d recommend the funicular both ways!

The Mura Venete or the Venetian Wall is a 6 km long wall that goes around the old city of Bergamo. If you have the energy, it's nice to walk around the old city on the roads next to the wall.

You can walk up there are paths all the way ... however it’s steep too ... you get the Figuerola to the top and walking down with a stroller would be easier ... so much more to see on foot .. enjoy

Hi, Yes it should not be a problem as long as the person who pushes the stroller is able to walk uphill (there is a narrow sidewalk that should be OK to walk with a stroller)
