  • Ancient military building located on top of the Hill of San Viglio dominates the city both old and modern. The panorama and great especially crisp days of wind from the Alps at the foot of the Apennines. To go up to the Castle, which can be reached on foot, Board the funicular.

  • After the hustle and bustle of the old town, well worth to visit this castle. Especially the tower with beautiful views up there is worth it, but also to silence. When we were there it was relatively quiet. You can walk here without an entrance fee. It is not a castle more fully, & different beautiful remnants such as the tower.

  • Excellent views of the mountains and on the upper and lower city. Take the cable car up the mountain and down a beautiful walk. Entry to the castle is free

  • One of the two castles in Bergamo. You can get there either via the "Funicolare" that is a small train that goes up from the upper town, or on foot either though I kinda advice against doing so, specially if you're not familiar with the place. It's one of the highest places in Bergamo you can visit, if not the highest, and the view, well that's just astonishing.
  • Lovely old (free) semi-ruined castle. Make sure to explore the inside. Amazing place to watch the sunset, but you get kicked out as soon as the sun dips below the horizon!
  • Absolutely gorgeous view but a bit difficult to reach...
  • What a view from the top. This is the highlight of a trip to citti alta the views are outstanding
  • Excellent views out over Bergamo, the open plain and the foothills of the Alps.
