If you are close to LECCO just pay short visit to this clock tower. Is close to city center and you can have a really good lunch close to the tower or ICE CREAM - GELATO.

My fellow traveller was unaware that the number of chimes correspond with the hour until we listened to its beautiful chimes. A beautiful functioning clock tower.

Spectacular views. You need to book in advance to go to the top of the tower. You can go to the top through spiral staircase, in the end it gives a amazing panoramic view of the city and lake. Guided tour is also available.

A typical beautiful Italian church! I go into every one I see and haven't been sorry yet. Except for one in Milan that had a very rude man (priest?) at it. This one in Lecco does not disappoint.
