We were tipped off about the Rocca, as it didn't seem to feature on any of the 'must see' lists for Citta Alta. It appears to be an old fortress, perched on a higher bit of ground, about level with rooftops of surrounding buildings. Not sure if there is a museum inside (we couldn't get in that day) but a... 更多
Very beautiful walking upper city. Wonderful churches and other sites. The fortress and castle were nice but not as much to see as I would have wanted. The archaeological site seems to be permanently closed and can only be viewed through windows. Still a very nice visit.

while the fortress itself is not of high interest, it is still worth to wander up here for the view on Bergamo Alto, the city's old upper part. you can walk around the fortress and at one point (when coming up just to your left) you have a nice view on all the towers and buildings.

Not crowded, great views, classic fortress, nice atmosphere, near the historic old town square, and has a history museum that is very interesting and no one in it.
