Trip Type:
City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Visit Tourist Information Office which is very close to the train station - you can get useful info, free brochures listing all the places to see and a map.

Liked: Cosy old town, good public transport system, helpful employees at the Tourist information office

Disliked: There was a train strike, so we had to spend a few hours at the small station packed with people and with no places to sit down. If you decide to go to the Upper part of town on foot, it's quite challenging :)

Customer Travel Tip: Città Alta es a special experience.

Liked: The town is quite rich in culture and with a very special division between the upper (old) part and the lower (new) part.

Disliked: There should be more alternatives to buy bus tickets if the automatic ticket machines does not work (and apparently they are often out of order. It is especially disturbing at the airport, when you arrive from another country).

Trip Type:
City break Family Holiday Shopping Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Don't forget to order Aperol Spritz! And try some local food specialities, and find out when the markets are and go there! If you're staying for quite a few days, I'd recommend you to go to Como lake or Garda lake. The train goes there from Bergamo, and you can take the ferry around the lake. It's beautiful.

Liked: The old town, friendly people. It's near to many other great places in the north of Italy, and it's easy to get around.

Disliked: It's hard to find things to do, even if you're only there for 3 days. It's more of a food and drink experience than activity and exploring.
