After visiting various other rooms on the first and second floors, each decorated with gorgeous frescoes and paintings, we climbed up to the battlements and then all the way up to the top of Arnolfo Tower. The climb to the top of the tower was steep but totally worth the effort as we got a breathtaking bird's eye view of the entire Florence city.
Piazzale Castel San Pietro
2. Cross the ponte pietra (stone bridge) and climb to the top of the hill to Castel San Pietro for a birds eye view of Verona. It’s hard work, especially in summer, but worth it. Also, stop half way across the bridge and look back to your right to see my favourite little crop of buildings in Verona (pictured above).
