How to get from Bergamo Airport to Bergamo

Bergamo is the epitome of an authentic Italian town. Situated in the north, it treats visitors to a welcoming atmosphere, enchanting cobbled streets, and medieval architecture. This town is one of Italy’s few remaining ‘best-kept secrets’ and is perfect if you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Milan Bergamo Airport, also known as Orio al Serio International Airport, is one of three airports serving Bergamo and Milan. Situated around 7 km from Bergamo city centre, the drive takes around 15 minutes by car. There are three transport options when travelling from Bergamo Airport to Bergamo: taxi, private transfer, or bus. Taking a taxi or private transfer is the most comfortable choice, taking just 15 minutes door-to-door. Alternatively, you can hop on the ATB Airport Bus to the city centre of Bergamo for €3. Just keep in mind that you’ll have to make your way from the station to your hotel.

Opting for a taxi or private transfer is a quick and convenient way to travel between the airport and the town. You can sit back and enjoy the ride without having to worry about overcrowding or carrying around your luggage. And even if you’re travelling with a group and on a budget, you can still split the cab fare and it won’t be much more expensive than public transport.

Editor’s Note

The queues for a taxi can get quite long during rush hours and peak season. If you'd rather avoid the wait, you can book a private transfer in advance and hop straight into your pre-selected vehicle without any hassle.

Useful Tips

Always make sure your driver switches the meter on at the start of your journey.
If your driver asks you for an upfront payment, this is a red flag. Always pay at the end of your journey to make sure you’re paying the correct amount.
Although many of the drivers are bilingual, it’s always worth having the name of your destination written down to avoid any miscommunication.

How to get from Bergamo Airport to Bergamo by bus

As there’s no train station at Bergamo Airport, the only way to reach the town by public transport is to catch the bus. The ATB Airport Bus Line 1 will take you from Bergamo Airport to Bergamo city centre, stopping at main hubs along the way.

The ATB bus will stop at Bergamo’s main station in the lower town centre before reaching the city centre. If you’re staying further out, the bus continues on to the Funicular and Città Alta in the old upper town. You’ll be able to reach the city centre in around 20 minutes and Città Alta in just over 30 minutes, excluding wait times.

Where do I get it from?

The Airport Bus at Milan Bergamo Airport leaves from Bus Stop 1, in front of the Arrivals Hall.


While the bus is a very affordable way to travel between BGY Airport and Bergamo, it can get quite busy. The buses don’t have separate luggage compartments either, so you’ll need to carry your luggage onboard, which can make it quite a tight squeeze. If you’re travelling with kids or lots of luggage, we recommend taking a taxi or private transfer instead.

Editor’s Note

Alongside single tickets, you can also purchase discounted tickets for longer periods, such as 24 hours and 72 hours. These tickets give you unlimited travel on all ATB buses, the Funicular and the Bergamo Airport Bus during your stay.

Useful Tips

Don't forget to validate your tickets on the bus.
The bus also stops near many of the main hotels in Bergamo, including The Best Western and San Marco, so you shouldn’t have to walk too far to your hotel.
When you’re travelling back to Bergamo Airport, make sure you ask the driver if the bus is stopping at the airport, as not all of them do. Keep an eye out for a picture of a plane on the bus or for the word ‘Aeroporto’ on the front.
