Funicular to San Vigilio May 20, 2011
Rising above Citta Alta is a second hill, atop which sits the village of San Vigilio, which offers great views over Citta Alta and the province of Bergamo.

To get to the top of this second hill, you can take a funicular from just outside the walls of Citta Alta. If you head along Via Bartolomeo Colleoni, through the square, across Largo Colle Aperto and through the gate (Colle Aperto) itself, you will find the second funicular station on your right.

If you hold a 24 or 72 hour ATB tourist ticket, you can travel on this funicular for free (as well as the town's buses and funicular between Citta Bassa and Citta Alta).

This upper funicular runs slightly less frequent than the funicular which connects Citta Bassa and Citta Alta and ceases service slightly earlier in the evening.

Single journey tickets can be purchased for a cost of €2,00.

This funicular first began operating on 27 August 1912; after a period of over sixty years, service was suspended in 1976 at the expiration of the government concession for the service. With a need to upgrade the line to meet new safety regulations, radical plans for a revamp of the service were prepared in 1984 and work began in 1987, with the line re-opening in 1991.

The funicular runs a line of 630 meters and has a single carriage with a capacity of 55 passengers.
