Campanone – Civic Tower

Description

In the heart of Piazza Vecchia stands the Civic Tower, otherwise known as the Campanone, which with its height of 52.76 metres, offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the old town.


At the top, accessible by foot (230 steps) or more comfortably in the lift, you will find the largest bell in Lombardy. Even today, every night at 10pm the Campanone chimes one hundred time as a perennial reminder of the closure of the city gates, along the walls, during the Venetian domination.
