A beautifull place to visit, and it can be recommended to take a walk around The tower, but the service inside the tower was very unpolite and rude to us, and it made us walk away immidiately.

Pienellä rappujen kapuamisella uskomattomat näköalat palkitsevat vaivan. Kesken kiipeämisen voi pysähtyä katsomaan taidetta kahdessa tilassa. The magnificent view that opens from the tower rewards the little effort of climbing the stairs. On the way up, you can check interesting art in two different spaces.

When you climb a hill, where the tower is situated, you will see a great view on the town, water. Rocks under your feet. A great Tower, but I haven't climbed it - it was not opened - I was early in the morning.

Excellent Italian food.. Especially pasta and cakes are recommended. You can get good view to the surroundings from the top of the tower.

This is somewhere definitely to be visited. You can see the whole of town from the towertop as well as out miles to sea. The climb's a bit dreadful for an old smoker like me but it was worth it. The view is truly fantastic....More
