“Marvellous views”

Campanone o Torre Civica
Ranked #7 of 159 things to do in Bergamo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 20, 2013

The tower is worth climbing to get the views of the cite bassa and the beautiful countryside. The history of the bells is very interesting and seeing the bells up close is fascinating. Time your visit so it doesn't coincide with the ringing of the bells as it is quite a noise!

Good value especially with a Bergamo Card.
Very good views of the city, especially if you love to look over the higgaldy piggaldy roofs of old Italian cities.
Very fast lifts, but there are still some steps so not good for those with mobility issues. One reviewer says the bell ring every hour. I think they do every 30mins. The bells themselves are beautiful copies of 14th century ones, the originals having been melted down for armaments in the war.they are certainly very loud when all three ring!
The museum next door is marvellous

The city view from up there is breathtaking, so it is worth climbing the never ending stair! But of course there's an elevator too in case someone has a difficulty climbing the stair. Try not to be under the bell when it starts ringing!

We went up high in the bell tower and looked down on all the red-roofed buildings, churches, and interesting old buildings. It was one of our favorite "views" of the trip.

Some nice views at surrounding piazzas and churches from above. Walk the stairs or take a lift to the top. Worth the price.
