Bergamo’s beautiful upper town, the Città Alta (pictured above), is a magical place well worth visiting. Use this website to help you plan your trip to Bergamo in Northern Italy and find your way to some of the other lovely towns and villages in Lombardia that are perhaps less well known to tourists.


Sweeping views from San Vigilio restaurant

Stunning views from San Vigilio
If you would like to dine in style while enjoying spectac- ular views, try the Bar Pizzeria Ristorante San Vigilio, high above Bergamo.
From the terrace of the restaurant in Via San Vigilio there are sweeping views over Parco dei Colli (park of the hills).
Open every day, the San Vigilio offers a comprehensive menu with pizza, pasta, fish and meat dishes and salads.
There is also a good wine list that includes plenty of wines from Lombardia.
To reach San Vigilio, take the funicular (cable car) from Largo di Porta Sant'Alessandro, close to where the bus from Città Bassa to Città Alta terminates at Largo Colle Aperto. When you disembark at the funicular station at San Vigilio, turn left and you will find the restaurant a few metres away at the beginning of Via San Vigilio.
The map below shows San Vigilio in relation to Città Alta, which is the area in the map around the university buildings.
Inside it is bright, modern and spacious with some pieces of antique furniture and some unusual features such as a gleaming red and chrome ham slicer, complete with a whole prosciutto crudo (cured ham), in pride of place in front of the bar.
I enjoyed a delicious pizza napoli washed down with a good bottle of Valcalepio bianco when I visited San Vigilio in May 2010.
