We thought there were more to do, but we just visited 4 churches and a museum. But the atmosphere was magical. A choice of restaurants is limited.

Definitely something to experience. From the funicula ride to the incredible buzz in the heart of history. A Must for every visitor to Bergamo.

The old city is a must. It is a walk from the lower town up the hill but a funicular is available if one does not want to walk the streets to the top. Beautiful views from the walls.

This is a wonderful old town surrounded by walls. I came back after more than 4 years and I am still impressed by the history and architecture of this place. Yes, sure the place is touristy and crowded at times and especially during week ends....More

Beautiful cobbled narrow streets, piazzas, basillicas, cafes, restaurants, and a funicular railway to take you to the top. A must if your in Bergamo.
