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!
