Torre dei Lamberti information
For panoramic views of Verona and nearby mountains, head up this 84m-high watchtower. Begun in the 12th century and finished in 1463 – too late to notice invading Venetians – it sports an octagonal bell tower whose two bells retain their ancient names: Rengo once called meetings of the city council, while Marangona warned citizens of fire. A lift whisks you up two-thirds of the way but you have to walk the last few storeys.
Full-price admission to the tower is reduced to €5 on Mondays as the adjoining Galleria d'Arte Moderna Achille Forti is closed.
