It is a collection of arts and beauties in the centre of the Città Alta.
Each detail in this edifice will surprise you with its unbelievable elegance: come and see it! I fled, just like an owl..." is a slab of stone in the house where Gaetano Donizetti was born. Situated in the centre of Oberbergamo, the Hauptstraße is full of historic craft stores and a beautiful eatery where it seems as though the clock has stood still.
The construction resulted in eight ex-communications by the locals, but it was rewarded: today the solid defence walls of Bergamo are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

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.
