Stroll along the wall of the historic center from the Central Tower. Famous in the medieval history of Como, it was built in 1192. It overlooks the square where the Austrian garrison surrendered to Como, with a monument to Garibaldi by sculptor Vincenzo Vela.

40 meters high - four superimposed rows of double windows.

Directions: From the front of the arched gate, just outside the historic center, you would walk left along the wall to Vialle Verese - then down toward the lake.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
