Towers in Verona

Torre dei Lamberti

8.5/10

The Torre dei Lamberti is 84 m high tower in Verona, northern Italy, built in 1172.

In May 1403 a lightning struck it, but only in 1448 restoration works were started, lasting until 1464. In the occasion the tower was enlarged: the more recent sections can be recognized today by the use of different materials (such as marble). The large clock was added in 1779.

The tower had two bells: the smaller one, known as Marangona, signalled fires and the hours of the day, while the largest, called Rengo, was used to call the population to arms or to invoke the city's councils.

The 250+ steps are worth it in the end...if not, you can just use the elevator...

Unlike the Tuscan towers, there is little exercise involved as a lift can take you up the first 250ish steps. The last 100 are easy

Не жалейте 6 евро и обязательно поднимитесь наверх. Помните, что колокол наверху бьет каждые полчаса. Если не быть готовым к этому, то можно впасть в транс от страха,когда он ударит над самой головой.

Лучший вид на город и площадь дель Эрбе. Билет сдвоен галереей современного искусства, посещение которой в принципе можно пропустить.
