The Lambert Tower rises with a height of 84 meters and is one of the most popular attractions in the city. With its breathtaking panoramic view at the top, a must-visit.
The building began in 1172 in honor of the Lamberti family, one of the strongest and wealthiest families in Verona. In 1295, the two bells (called Rango and Marangona) were added to it to symbolize the working hours and the day. In 1403 lightning struck the top of the tower, causing it to collapse, and 15 years later, the renovation work was completed. In 1798, the impressive clock on its front was added to the Lamberti tower.
The Lamberti Tower is above the central and bustling Piazza del Arba, where a street market is held, and many cafes and restaurants operate nearby. From Piazza del Arba, you can easily reach Juliet’s house and the Mazzini pedestrian street with high-end luxury shops. Spending a little more time in the square to hear about its glorious and long history is highly recommended.
