Mountainamo Upper Town - Review of La Citta Alta, Bergamo, Italy

You can take the Milan Central Railway from Milan, the price of the tickets is almost 6 euros, the trains depart every other hour, the last at 11am. Coming to Bergamo it is very lovely and I suggest you to go up the hill on foot, so buy a pass to get to the upper part of the town where you will find the chapel and the museums and the beautiful Resturante.

It' s better to go the way down and not take the downrain. Take a coach to Città Alta and stay there for a few hrs, wandering around. It'?s a beautiful area, and I have to make a stop in Bergamo. The Citta Alta is unaffected by aging. Situated high above Bergamo with city ramparts, it offers spectacular access to this historical centre with magnificent dining and shopping.
