Taking a train up is far easier than walking. The funicular was very crowded. The conductor really packed the cabins on the way down.

Got help from the conductor in buying a ticket and we were on our way. Nice way to get up to the fort to appreciate the vistas.

Fun and functional - takes you up or down for €1.3 and open long hours. Only takes a few minutes but does not run every few minutes so likely to wait a little.

A comfortable way up to the upper town. Regular times and reasonably priced with good views. Runs until late so very convenient for a late evening .

Being 1st time in Italy, the visit in Cotta Alta was absolutely fantastic but Funicolare is a must, up and down. Highly recommended if you are in Bergamo !

takes you form the lower city to the upper one in a few minutes - you actually travel through the old city walls which are an amazing depth - Bergamo is just a gem - definitely worth visiting if you are in Lombardy

Funicolare Bergamo Alta is the best, fast and easy way to reach upper Bergamo. The price is 1.3 EUR one way and it is worth to pay this price instead of climbing up the stairs. The funicular itself is nothing special, just like a regular...More
