It's nearly 150 steps up from the plaza to the top but once you make it there the view is stunning and your eyes are rewarded! Bonus! Want to stay in a "tower", it's also a holiday rental!More

Many of the old Italian cities have these towers. They are very striking form a distance--looking like a high rise. Up close, they are really something--just keep reminding yourself of when they were built and how much effort went into their construction! That they survive...More

Torre Salvucci Maggiore serves two functions. The first, obviously, is providing a panoramic view. Here it falls a bit short of the competition (Torre Grossa in particular) - it is the third or fourth around according to height. Still, I really do not think you...More
