    I looked at googlemaps. Via Grumello is quite a way outside the centre. About 3km or so from the station....maybe 30-40 mins walk?

    There may be a bus route nearby:

    hi Maurizio,

    Via Grumello is about 2.5 kms South West of the train station. Coming from the station, note that via Gianbattista Moroni changes into Via Grumello when it crosses Via Sant'Ambrogio. All this INSIDE the Circonvallazione Pompiniano.

    Via Grumello also extends further South West, across the Circonvallazione Pompiniano.

    Here is a link to a hotel on Via Grumello. Their website states that they are 2.6 kms from the station, and the map on their site shows the hotel INSIDE Circonvallazione Pompiniano.
    As long as you stay INSIDE the Circonvallazione, at that point at least, you are never much more than 2.6 kms from the station.
    (The link is in French... I'll see if I can get the Italian one.)

    Here's the bus route map:

    I think bus 5/5A/5B serves the area.

    Grazie!

    I've seen a VTer booked a room at Enearooms in via Grumello. So I asked about the distance from the train station.

    well that was easy! here's the link I mentioned above, in Italian:

    booking.com/hotel/it/affitta...

    On the left of the page, you'll see distances to various spots in the city.

    it's the Enea that I sent you the link to. :)

    and they have a bus stop in front, the bus goes to the station.
    "Dotato di un parcheggio gratuito, l'Enearoom B&B si trova di fronte a una fermata degli autobus che offre collegamenti con la stazione di Bergamo."

    There you go then! Sorted!

    And from the station you can catch bus 1A up to Berg Alat with no probs at all.

    I'm going to Bergamo by train, so Enearooms isn't a good choice for me.I don't know if there are any night buses in Bergamo...

    I think they mostly stop running in the evening, Maurizio, although the 1/1A runs until just past midnight.

    It would probably be better if you can find somewhere more central in either Bassa or Alta.

    I spent a week at a friend's in Treviolo (same direction as Via Grumello, a bit further from Bergamo Centre.)

    There were buses to and from town, and night service until about 23:30 hrs (as far as I know. I never needed a bus later than that so didn't pay attention. You can of course download the orari, or call them up.

    Still, I understand that you'd like to stay closer to the centre. By the way, should you want a bus to stop for you at the fermata, you must wave it down. At least that's how it was when I was there.

    Another option is that if a few VTers are stopping at this same B&B, you could get a taxi together if the buses have stopped.
    A 3 day Bus ticket costs 7 Euros which includes the funicular and local buses
