Favorite thing: Next to Arco della Costa (Arch of the Rib), so called because of the whale rib which hangs beneath, is the Palazzo del Comune. The Medieval facade on this side of the Palazzo was concealed in the 19th century by G.Barbieri, under the Neoclassical one.
The Palazzo del Comune is flanked by Torre dei Lamberti, the tallest building in Verona. It eas begun in 1172 and completed in 1464 with the construction of the octagonal bellfry, which still houses two ancient bells, the Rengo and the Marangoma.


Fondest memory: From about altitude of 80 meters, you can have the best possible panoramic view of Verona and its surroundings. You can reach the top of the tower by the lift, which cost you 3,00 euro. The same ticket is valid to entrance in the courtyard where the Scaligeri tombs are situated.
