It totally deserves to clim those unlimited steps! I was so tired while going up and I though I was not gonna make it, it is really a long way! But once at the top it is wonderful. The shape of the city, the colours, the buildings, it is like in a movie! I strongly recommend to go there and... More

Walking up here is not hard, but of course there are stairs. It's possible to reach the top and enjoy the view even by car, but honestly I prefered to walk. Great both for couples romantic moments and to take pictures with friends. Not far from the city centre, it gives a complete idea of the city. Personally I suggest... More

We took the large number of steps to the top which are not suitable for people with mobility issues (I don't know if there is another way to get there). However when reaching the top your effort will be rewarded. There is the most spectacular view of Verona. Definitely bring your camera for this one.

Of cource, it is a very special enjoyment to see the town from the tower, but in Verona it doesn't work: the highest point is not one of the towers but San Pietro mountain. The town dwellings occupy the entire foothill and the narrow road between the houses leads up until the very top where you can see the waving... More

Our tourist guide recommended this place, although he said there is too many steps. We accepted the “chalenge” and decided to see the view from the castel. It is neither far, nor too high to climb. But look at Verona is beautiful. Also, there is a restaurant with the terace where you can drink aperol spritz and enjoy the view.... More

We were lucky enough to be driven to the top to catch the view, both day and night. Nice view of the Roman theater archaeological site on the way down.

This was definitely worth climbing up to as it offers the most spectacular views of Verona with the river snaking round and many spires in the background . Photographers paradise ! Just a lovely area to sit and enjoy the views in all lights .

If you're not used to physical exercise, this climb will bring all the sweat out of you, but it is well worth it. There is a little plateau half the way up on your left that has a bench, where you can sit, take a couple awesome pictures and catch your breath. But don't stop here. When you get on... More

Great view of Verona from the top- 200 plus steps up but it was worth it. The children loved it. Stunning on a clear day.
