  1. I am going to Milan soon for a short break and wondered how I can get to Bergamo for the day. Also, how long does it take?

  2. From Milan it is less than an hour by train to Bergamo and there are regular services. Look at the Getting Around section for more information on how to use Italian trains. There is also information about transport to get you round Bergamo. Hope you enjoy your trip!
