Torre del Gombito is located at the intersection of Via Mario Lupo and Via Gombito. It was built in the 12th century and today it is 52 meters high compared to the original 64.It towers over the city and looks great. The tower has retained its original appearance, typical of medieval fortifications. It attracts the eye and crowds of tourists. You can visit the interior and watch the city from there.

The actual tower is not so much to look at - maybe because they have the amazing cathedral and basilica - but the view from the top is well worth entering for

If you happened to be in Milan, please leave at least one day for Bergamo. This city is UNESCO World Heritage for reason. It would take you about 45 min from Milano Centrale Railway Station and another few min by funicular to Citta’Alta-upper city, (but definitely go on foot on your way back to soak and absorb the beauty). I guarantee you will be sold forever. Please climb to Gombito Tower- you will be awarded by the most spectacular view over Bergamo. Bad news- steps are very narrow, so no flip flops. The good news- if I could do it, everyone can. Now, it will be your ‘Oh’ and ‘Ah’ moment.

It is one of the many towers where you can climb up to the top, to have fantastic views - at least it was said, as we are a little bit old to master 230 steps up.

I was lucky enough that my only full day in Bergamo landed on a Monday so I got to experience climbing the Gombito tower! I was worried I might not get a place but luckily there was a spot for me in the tour leaving in a few minutes.
We climbed a few flights of stairs, took a short break to read an information panel, and then climbed a few more flights and finally reached the top. The views were AMAZING! 360 deg view of the whole city! I liked the views here better than the one up on the San vigillo fortress as you can see the details of the buildings. The guide kindly answered some of my questions about the different buildings - make sure you utilise your guide's knowledge and ask him/her to point out buildings for you :)
It was well worth it, highly recommended.
I didn't get a chance to thank the guide at the end, the man with the lovely long hair - he must get a lot of exercise climbing all those stairs for different groups!

Then I finally reached this place, I could get very good view of the city and nearby cities. Good place for taking panoramic photos. There are some benches, so you can relax here for a while. The place doesn't seem to attract a lot of people, but it is worth to climb here.

The tourist office in "citta alta" offers free tours up Gombito tower. Check their website for more details. You will be rewarded with an amazing view of historic Bergamo. As we were there it was raining and even then it was a great activity even if we could only see the immediate vicinity. We'll be back on a sunny day to come up there again. MUST do in Bergamo's citta alta.

It is 52 meters high and the only privately owned tower still standing. In 1877 it was donated to the town by the then owners and now houses and information center on the ground floor.

The Tower is only open to the public on Monday's and needs to be booked in advance at the tourist information office which is in the same building as the tower. You need to be reasonably fit as you have to climb 263 very narrow steps to reach the top. Once you reach the top the views over the city of Bergamo are spectacular. I should also mention that entrance is free so if you are in Bergamo you should go.
