Baptistry in Città Alta, behind Piazza Vecchia

Bergamo is well served in all respects by buses and taxis. And there are two funiculars. One goes from the end of bus 1 up to the Upper Town. Another one goes from the Upper Town up to San Vigilio. The view from both of these funiculars and the bars at the top are magnificent.
