What a surpise

I lived in Brescia for a year and I never visited Bergmao and I regret that now. It is such a pretty place, with acres of history and beautiful places to stroll and eat.

I only had few hours to visit in November. The views supposed to be impressive, but it was already dark. Everything was closed with only few people wandering the streets. It was still nice, but try to get there when there is light.

La Citta Alta is the perfect place to visit for 2-3 hours if you are in Bergamo. If you want to arrive here coming from the new city you need to take the funicular for only 1.3 euro one way. The streets in Citta Alta are really amazing and there are several shops, restaurants and churches that you can visit.... More

No, not the Harley Quinn (you've seen that movie, or the cartoon, or the comics etcetcetc) So not that one - I mean the real historic one... Gues if these caro-coloured body clad "comic figure" s give you unvoluntary shiver or fear - Alta Cita of Bergamo will not be the best place on a rainy dark day or night,... More

The best place for restaurants, views and shopping, coffee and people watching. There are lovely churches to visit, quaint little streets to walk along and generally enjoy time there.

A perfect place for a walk. You can visit little shops along the main street, eat something sweet or savoury, buy some local products or visit a pub. Can be little crowded during weekend afternoons, but it's still enjoyable. IT's a vibrant place where you can feel a taste of Italian lifestyle.

The Up Town B & B is in the Citta Alta. This is by far the best part of Bergamo with cobbled streets, great shops, bars and restaurants and superb views.
