How to see Verona from above – Torre dei Lamberti (free with Verona Card)
Verona, a remarkably charming city, both from the ground and especially as seen from the birds-eye perspective. Thanks to Verona Card and the overview of places I’m allowed to visit for free, I found out about Torre dei Lamberti. It’s basically a huge clock tower in the historic centre of the City, just nearby Piazza delle Erbe. The Tower is also located just above Palazzo della Raggione, where the stunning Galleria d’Arte Moderna Achille Forti is located. Without the card, I would have probably just passed the building, will both my eyes on all the fresh produce sold on the market on the Piazza. Even though the entrance to the Torre dei Lamberti is free for Verona Card owners, you can pay one additional euro to use the elevator. Otherwise, you have to take the 368 stairs (I highly recommend paying this 1€ and taking the more convenient elevator to the top), as you anyway have to queue up at the ticket office for your entrance token.
As Torre dei Lamberti wasn’t too busy when I visited, it took me barely 5 minutes from queuing at the ticket office, taking the elevator and standing on the top floor of the 84-meter high clock tower. Plan your visit wisely, as the big clocks are still active, every 30 minutes. Wow, seeing Verona from above was just stunning! You can even see parts of Arena di Verona and other remarkable sights and attractions from the Top of Torre dei Lamberti, as well as an endless view of the region. Considering how well-preserved the Tower is, it’s unbelievable to understand constructions for it started around 900 years ago, in 1172. Personally, I can highly recommend visiting the panoramic platform of the Tower, especially if you already own a Verona Card.
