“Fabulous views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Well worth the small entry fee. Some steep steps to the top are worth the effort. The tower has an interesting history that you can read about at the entrance. You efforts will be rewarded with a fabulous view over the patchwork of terracotta roofs of the town. A great opportunity for some photos over the town to the castle and out over the harbour and lake. The clock chimes it's bell so watch out every 15 mins. You can also ring the big bell yourself, confusing all below.

Strongly recommend it.

“Pretty Ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Clock tower in a simple square surrounded by restaurants, bars and some shops, but far more off the square with the lake opposite. Nothing out of the ordinary here, in fact, some entertainment would have been nice.

“Night time entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Spent a few evenings/nights in this area enjoying the food, drink and entertainment. The open air orchestra was brilliant with the whole square seated for the large attendance. A magnet for people enjoying an after dinner stroll.

“Amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We stumbled across the tower one day we were out and for only a few euros each we though we'd have a look. So glad we did the view from the top is amazing.

“Perfect panorama”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Climb to the top of the stairs and step out onto the top of the tower. You'll need a head for heights, especially if it's windy. Make sure you aren't there when the bell rings - it's deafening! However, the view is simply stunning: red-tiled roofs, narrow streets and piazzas, the lake and the majestic Dolomites.
