We were told to get off a stop early to get the Funicolare up to the Alta and that was the best advice ever. The Funicolare was so awesome, the bus ticket we bought covered the journey cost anyway and it was better way to travel up than the bus. The tram went up a very steep hill which gave... More

Who doesn't like gondolas? Both ways. It's worth the price. Park the car and take the Funicular! Cite Alta is very walkable.

An efficient and easy way to visit Citta Alta. Not expensive and pretty fast. First we took the bus to go to Citta Alta and on the way back we took the cablecar from Citta Alta and walked to our hotel in Bergamo.

Great frequent service to get to the San Virgilio area of Citta Alta. We used the funiculare to get to the restaurant Baretto San Virgilio which is just outside the cable car station. Only downside was that it was night time and we couldn't appreciate what must be amazing views from the top. Next time we will return during the... More

This special railway or Funicolare is really useful. It helps you to “climb” up without any problem for a small fee. You will have enough possibility to walk to the church and down later. As some other visitors I recommend it for going up to the old city. View is nice but not as much as you expect, because there... More

This is a short trip up the hill but a convenient way to visit the upper parts of Bergamo. There is not a lot to see on the way up or down and it is usually fairly busy but interesting and the architecture is definitely worth while. .

Oh my what an experience for kids in one of the most beautiful towns for culinary moms and dads... but for kids hell until you go up to the mountain in the funnycolor as they called it...once at the top.... well a beautiful view over a slightly still warm Bergamo... for dads... Monza is only 0-60 away!!!

Using this funicular adds to the experience of travelling to the top of the city. It is part of the ticket you can buy for 3 days which is great value . It doesn't run at lunch time and you have to calculate when you coming down but there are buses anyway .

Nothing special,really, but useful and easy. In 5 min down-up, no hassle (well no view as well while riding, but after all this is just a means to reach the interesting place...

Does what you need and saves a lot of walking from the lower modern town up to the old town area of Bergamo. The normal transport tickets cover the cost of taking the funicular so the price is good.
