“Great place for views and the kids to run about!”
Review of Rocca di Bergamo

Rocca di Bergamo
Ranked #15 of 165 things to do in Bergamo
Certificate of Excellence

Have been here since my childhood many times, and since with my kids to burn off that icecream, enjoy the war memorials and terrific views. Short walk from Funicular and town, and enjoyable, some great photo opportunities!

We bought a combination ticket for Rocca, Tore Civica and Donizetti. We loved the free gardens at Rocca with a beautiful view, but didn't care much for the museum which focuses on the unification of Italy.
We wanted to go the walls around the museum but were told we would have to buy an extra ticket. This annoyed us and we decided not to do it.

Our visit to the Fondazione Bergamo Nella Storia museum in Rocca di Bergamo provided an exceptional historical view of Bergamo with special focus on the wars of unification and Garibaldi's role in the formation of the Italian State. The self-guided tour is very easily followed and chronologically depicts the unfolding of history on Bergamo and Italy.

Nothing to dislike if you know how to get about. They now have a new Tourist Centre opposite the Railway and Bus Stations they will tell you all you need to know.
The Rocca contains the Garibaldi Museum as Bergamo supplied over one third of the thousamds following Garibaldi in his expedition. Worth visiting. The view of the Po Valley from there is superb. During clear sunny mornings you can actualy see the Virging Mary statue on top of the Milan Duomo, 30 miles away.

It is a nice walk to reach the Rocca and walk around the remembrence park (it is only five minutes from the funicolar station in citta alta) , but the museum situated there is rather dissapointing. Italy has a lot much more beautiful castles to show than this one...
