Quick Overview: Bergamo Upper Town Small Group Walking Tour with Funicolar Ride

1 review
If you enjoy some time in Milan, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Bergamo, easy to reach by train. Bergamo is a beautiful medieval city composed by Upper and Lower Bergamo. The most interesting part of the city is Upper Bergamo that you reach by a cable train, the“Funicolare”, with your guide. At arrival, explore the city with its defensive walls and old buildings, and spend some time in“Piazza Vecchia”, the most important square of Bergamo. The tour continues at the “Campanone”, the bell tower, from which to see at the whole city. Then, you admire the church of Santa Maria Maggiore built in Baroque style, a real gem! The wonders of the city are not finished, you walk to the “Antico Lavatoio” and the “Cittadella Viscontea” house of Visconti,a Real family of Bergamo. It’s time for a sweet surprise, you can taste the “gelato” in the ice-cream shop that invented the Stracciatella, a flavour composed by milk ice-cream and chocolate chips. A delicious ending not to forget this day!

Bergamo is one of the most enchanting towns of the northern Italy. This destination is a MUST if you travel to this region. The food, the views, the unique restaurants and amenities are something you don't want to miss when you visit. Try a ride on the funicolare ! a little train that goes up and down between Bergamo Alta and Begamo bassa. We went on Dec.2019 but the drop down menu doesn't allow to go back from 03/2020

This was a real surprise. You will surely go to Milano, one day, take the time to visite Bergamo, not far away, only 50 min by train. A real architectural wander, once a Serenissima city, it still bears a Venetian style. The walk will offer you views, gardens and building of great beauty with hidden restaurants and pretty shops.

Amazing collection of medieval to renaissance buildings, picturesque alleys, and restaurants. You may take the funicular up, walk (quite a hike) or if lucky get a parking spot outside the Venetian walls. Definitely worth at least two hours. There is a recommended itinerary posted around citta alta.

The whole Bergamo Alta is a very charming place. Bergamo Alta is a city with surprises and culture places to discover. You can visit this characteristic, lovely shops, the beautiful church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Convent of San Francesco, the ancient laundry and many others. A great walk with friends on this Medieval City with all these narrow streets, walls of stone. The upper city of Bergamo is definitely worth a visit. I added some pictures from Bergamo Alta which feature less known but surely equally suggestive places. I like to discover unexplored corners, Bergamo Alta offers a lot of them. Highly recommend.

This medieval town was absolutely stunning! We stayed over for a couple of nights and went on two occasions. We took the funicular up at around two euros and then walked down. Its very steep, so this was the best way to do it. Once at the top there are shops, bars, restaurants, gardens, galleries, etc. It's one of the most amazing places we've been to. Its definitely worth a visit.
