Bergamo How To Get Here And How To Get Around, Italy

By car
A4 Turin-Venice highway: Bergamo exit
As in other Italian cities, traffic is a major problem. Driving and parking in the city could be extremely difficult. Furthermore, the Città Alta (upper city) is a restricted traffic zone and is closed to traffic on holidays all year round from 10 a.m. to noon and from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. It's best you leave your car outside the city walls and enter the city on foot!

By train
The direct train from Milan - Central/Lambrate stations to Bergamo take less than an hour and are very frequent.
From Venice, the trip takes about three and a half hours and you have to change in Brescia.
Bus stops are right in front of the train station. Line 1 (Cable car) and line 1A (Colle Aperto) take you to the Città Alta.
If you take line 1 (Cable car) you can also ride the cable car on the same ticket. Tickets are not for sale on the bus! You can purchase tickets at the station newsstand.

By bus
Buses frequently depart the Milan central train station for Bergamo. City buses are the ATB orange ones. City tickets cost about 1 € and are valid for 75 minutes. You can also purchase a day ticket (for about 2.50 €) or 3-day ticket (about 5 €) that also let you ride the cable car. Remember to buy your tickets before getting on the bus. Tickets are on sale in the city's newsstands and in may cafes.
The major line are 1 (Airport - train station - Cable car – Città Alta) and 3 (that takes you to the stadium and hostel).
Careful: like elsewhere in Italy, night an holiday service in Bergamo is rather scarce. Buses are hard to come by after 9 p.m. and on holidays.

Orio al Serio airport
The Orio al Serio airport has experienced unprecedented growth in Italy, making it one of the top ten Italian airports in terms of the number of passengers.
With the introduction of the leading low cost airline, Ryanair, and other airlines like Air Berlin, Transavia, Wizz Air, the Orio al Serio airport has become one of the most important low cost flight terminals in Italy.
Bus line 1 from the airport to Bergamo costs about 1.20€ and takes about 30 minutes. You can also take a taxi (about 15-20€). The trip takes about 20 minutes.
