My Dearest Love, I write, though I doubt whether I shall not arrive before this letter; as the post only leaves Ravenna once a week, on Saturdays, and as I hope to set out tomorrow evening by the courier.?
? from a letter written by Percy Bysshe Shelley to his wife, August 1821
Next to the church, to the right of the portico, stands a round bell tower dating from the ninth or tenth century.
Some have suggested that this tower is similar to than the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Clearly this one is less ornate, built of unfaced brick; I have seen both and see no similarity.
It is very impressive for its height and its roundness. It is quite wonderful!
