Not only could we not climb the tower for the view, but we could hardly see the tower for all of the plastic sheeting and scaffolding. I was disappointed that none of the guide books (all published this year) listed the closing. It looks like...More

The most amazing staircase around the back of the building. Very high steps - almost ladders. Well worth a visit

Similar to the Torre del Elefante, this tower was built in early 14th century. Part of old city fortifications, nowadays under renovation works thus cannot be visited inside.

It was completed in 1305 and is built on the city's highest point in the Old Town. One cannot climb the tower.

OK, look at the tower, but then check out the nearby Porte de San Pancrazio, which is one of the fortified city gates that is still standing. Now it functions as a short tunnel for cars to enter the old city.

Worth visiting it, just to get a sense of old centuries and history behind this tower. It is really impressive.
