There's not much left of the old castle to see but the views from up there - over the city, the surrounding hills and valleys, the distant snow peaked mountains - is absolutely unmissable.

It was a hot day, and we took the Funicular San Vigilio rather than walking. The funicular has a small charge. You must use coins to buy tickets for the funicular from a machine, and there is no staff to help you figure out what...More

Once up there you get a nice view of bergamo and around! You can get there with the funicular and 10 mins walk. Clean, organized! Some nights they organize events on the moon light!

Lovely place to spend some time. The views from here are amazing, you can see Milan on a clear day but the view of the mountains made it for me.

Really lovely panoramic views, we had a great picnic there! We drove up but in a very small car. Nice place for walks too!

I enjoyed taking the funicular up to the castle. The views over the surrounding countryside were beautiful. I chose to walk back down from the castle, which was a long walk, but very pretty and one of the highlights of my day in Bergamo.

~We took the funicolare from Citta Alta but because of the weather we didn't see much due to the heavy cloud cover and rain. I would revisit in better weather and I am sure the views would be spectacular.
