I was not sure how to reach Bergamo airport and this came up as a good option. I'm really glad I took a chance. Although the bus stop is extremely crowded, if you have a ticket booked in advance you don't have to queue, which makes a huge difference on your overall experience.

Bus stop was easy to find and really took the pressure off of getting to the airport for a reasonable price. Took approximately an hour to get from central Milan to Bergamo airport.

It is very convenient that the departure time from the station is clearly marked. Convenient and punctual

Easy to find when you come out the airport and doesn’t take too long to get into the city.

Wonderful experience. Easy going tour guide helpful and attentive.
