Bergamo-Albino T1 Tram May 20, 2011
Bergamo has many transport options, but the T1 tram is its only tram and runs a route from Bergamo, through it's suburbs and out to the Lower Seriana Valley to its largest village of Albino.

Starting from Bergamo FS (just alongside the train station), stops along the route include :

Borgo Palazzo

San Fermo

Bianzana

Redona

Negrisoli

Martinella

Torre Boldone

Ranica

Alzano Sentro

Alzano Sopra

Nembro Camozzi

Nembro Centro

Nembro Saletti

Pradalunga

with its destination terminus at Albino.

Tickets for the tram should be purchased prior to boarding and validated once on board. Fares for individual journeys can be found here.

Alternatively, if you have a 24 or 72 hour tourist transport ticket (available from the ATB office at Porta Nuova and from Tabacchi throughout Bergamo), then the T1 tram is included as it is part of the ATB transport system.

The first section of the journey, from Bergamo FS through to Torre Boldone is through Bergamo's suburbs and views range from apartment blocks to houses, derelict buildings to modern office blocks, grafitti sprayed walls to scrap yards and often offer little to please the eye. However, once you pass Torre Boldone, the scenery opens up and the first views of hills can be seen with villages dotted along the hillsides.

At Ranica, within a short walk of the tram stop, you will find the start of a walk/cyclepath that will take you through the Lower Seriana Valley alongside the River Serio and can be followed all the way out to Clusone (if desired).

A dedicated website (only in Italian) gives extensive details about the T1 tram route whilst the link below gives a map and access to the route timetable on a site available in English.

It is possible to transport your bicycle on the T1 tram (with hire available in Bergamo). Your tram ticket allows the transportation of 1 bike per person. On weekdays and Saturdays the number of bicycles is limited to a maximum of 4 bicycles without prior reservation (it is prohibited to transport bicycles during the peak hours of 06:20 to 8:40, 12:30 to 14:30, 17:30 to 19:00).

On holidays and Sundays a maximum of 10 bikes with reservations required by calling 035 3692351 before 17:00 on the third day before the trip (e.g. on Thursday if the trip is on Sunday).

Journey duration from Bergamo FS to Albino is approximately 30 minutes.
