If you are close to LECCO just pay short visit to this clock tower. Is close to city center and you can have a really good lunch close to the tower or ICE CREAM - GELATO.

Spectacular views. You need to book in advance to go to the top of the tower. You can go to the top through spiral staircase, in the end it gives a amazing panoramic view of the city and lake. Guided tour is also available.

A typical beautiful Italian church! I go into every one I see and haven't been sorry yet. Except for one in Milan that had a very rude man (priest?) at it. This one in Lecco does not disappoint.
