I was born in this beautiful town and i lived here until i was 19 where i then "moved" to the UK. Every time i come back here it's a joy. I would like this town to get the importance it deserves on a international level considering our tourist office has limited resources and doesn't seem to be to switch... More

I recommend a stroll up to the top for a lovely view and if... More

Not for the faint of heart. The tower climb can be daunting for wimps like me....but not for my husband. The views are incredible.

Such an unassuming town, but the duomo and the battistero are superb. The outside alone is incredible but wait until you step inside. What a surprise! Be mindful that the duomo is closed during lunch time (God only knows why!). Don't forget to taste some of the famous torrone before you leave town.

The cathedral is very beautiful from outside & awesome from inside. Almost every cm2 is decorated: frescoes, statues, Flemish wall carpets etc. Nearby stands the famous Torrazzo- the symbol of the town. Don't miss the Palazzo Comunale- the City Hall. There are a few rooms open to the public & are worth a visit. The entrance is free. On the... More

Perfect little town scare, with larger than life cathedral and tower. Just unbelievably beautiful. Very lively day and night time!

No exception in the Cathedral. Be sure to see it lit up at night. Take in the Baptist which is more amazing inside.

There are 502 steps up the tower. Until you get to the top there is a grating on the windows that prevents good photography without contortions! At the top one gets a huge panorama of the countryside, but loses the detail of the architecture. Still, for tower aficionados like me, there was a sense of accomplishment and enough rewarding views... More

Great frescos, lovely atmosphere. Needs a guide to make the best of it. The two frescos near the main door are amazing

502 steps go past in a flash, especially when you stop to watch the video of the bell tower - really worth seeing, and luckily sub-titled. And once you've circled your way to the top, you're rewarded with some pretty fabulous views over the patchwork rooves of the town to the Po river... Once you make your way down, you... More
