the cittadella di bergamo surrounds the higher city, it is well worth a walk around it (ab. 2 km). Also awesome for some early-rise running.

What remains of the famous Citadel is only a fortress.Nowadays it houses two museums - an archeological museum and a natural sciences one. Between the Citadel and the houses of the old town is the Piazza Mascheroni, dominated by the Bell Tower, with a clock dating back to 1520.
