Campanone was built between the 11th and 12th centuries and belonged to the Suardi family, one of the most powerful families in the city at that time. The tower, from which Piazza Vecchia and Piazza del Duomo could be seen from above, turned out to be a real landmark. A few centuries later, the tower was taken over by the municipality of Bergamo, which placed the bells there. The tower also housed city prisons in the fourteenth century. Campanone was initially 37 meters high, but as a result of continuous expansion work, it has now reached 56 meters, making it the tallest tower in the city. From the top you can enjoy views of both the upper and lower town, the surroundings . It is one of the city's main monuments and a significant tourist attraction. Highly recommended, really great city view.

Added bonus if the huge bells go off when you are at the top! The views are magnificent. Apparently on a good day you can see the Spires of Il Duomo in Milan

The views from the tower were amazing and it was great finding out the timeline of some of the buildings surrounding the tower. There are steps or an elevator to reach the top of the tower. The ticket was €5 each but this also gave you access to the museum. The museum was really interesting and the technology added to the stories being told. Well worth a visit.

Old tower providing great view over the old "high" city and further. With an elevator to get to the top! Only downside: it was quite hazy, so not too far to see...
