Funicolar lower station, Bergamo





Taking a tour of the Upper Town of Bergamo is an unforgettable experience. Together we will embark on a fascinating journey to discover the timeless jewels of the Upper Town, within the Unesco World Heritage List since July 2017.

– Funicular
– Venetian walls Unesco Heritage
– Piazza Vecchia
– Colleoni Chapel,Rocca viscontea (XIV sec) and view over the lower city
– Santa Maria Maggiore Church.


The historic center of the Upper Town is a pedestrian area and together we can see the main attractions on an easy 3-hour walking tour.

The must-see monuments are surely the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, a magnificent Romanesque building, chiselled by centuries of history, the Cappella Colleoni, a funeral monument to one of the most important fifteenth-century Generals and of course Piazza Vecchia, the elegant open-air showpiece of the city that houses the ancient Palazzo della Ragione.

Besides these jewels you will discover countless other precious gems jealously guarded within the narrow medieval streets such as the delightful music of Gaetano Donizetti’s Museum, the enchanting views from the Rocca Viscontea, the Venetian city walls included in the Unesco heritage list and the sweet-scented botanical gardens.
