Torre dei Lamberti
The Lamberti Tower dates back to the 12th century. It rises vertically to 84 meters and is composed of two particularly distinct parts: the lower part is made up of lines of tuff and bricks; the upper part was built subsequently only in bricks.
The Lamberti Tower offers a unique panorama over the city and surrounding territory, from where one may get a glimpse of Lake Garda, and is for the Veronese people a visual reference. It is impressive to take the helicoidal staircase that leads to the bells installed at the top of the tower.
The poet, Simeoni, affirmed that the Lamberti Tower “is a stem of light which elevates its solemnity to affirm the most boisterous call to beauty and life of Verona under the protective maternal mantle”.
