Of all the towers we climbed in Italy, this one was our very favorite. It was inexpensive to climb (was it 4 euro?), gave great views and the trees were charming! Great views.

This was described as a 'must' on our map and we are so pleased we visited. For 4 euros (3 if over 65 years) you can take the stairs to the top. Not that strenuous and well worth the effort. Fantastic views and a surprise...More

Paolo Guinigi who built the tower was himself a silk merchant so I imagine the trade was concentrated in the area and there are a few craftsmen still pursuing/demonstrating the trade in the city. Afraid I can't help you with... More
