Seeing the bell tower was part of our "Footsteps in roman Aquileia". The Italians were and are fabulous builders. It was a pleasure to see history. We saw it from the outside. Too tired to climb stairs

They warn you that it is more than 100 steps to climb up to the top of the tower, and the staircase is narrow, the steps steep.

Visiting the sites, I registered several times that people bought only the basic entrance fee for the church without the tower or even the basement. Even with limited time I can only recommend not to save 3 euros and miss the best!

Bell tower from like 1100, built on top of (still partially visible, also in the tower) mosaic from around 300. Quite some, uneven steps (but what to expect when they are nearly a millennium old), giving a great view of the town, and the beautiful...More

The view was really nice. You can see all the area from the top...the vineyards. But get prepared for over 200 stairs and to meet other people on your way up (or down) in super tight space. But we deffinitely enjoyed!

It is really nice to climb the tower, you get rewarding views of the surroundings and you can see some artifacts in the ground level.

An impressive campanile, it helps to anchor an imaginary triangle with the cemetery and basilica. It is one of the tallest structures in the area and there is some notable artwork visible from the base.

We did not climb to the top as stairs are narrow and there is nothing to hang on to but it is worth a look for the mosaics in the tower base
