Clock Towers in Italy

Clock Tower Italy
Clock Tower in Udine

Almost every town in Italy has a clock tower and in many cases these tall monuments become landmarks of those  towns. In some cases they are tourist attractions and visitors line up to climb to the top to take advantage of what usually are superb views of the surrounding area. Enjoy.

  1. Great post – I really enjoyed it!

  2. My favorite was the Courmayer tower. It looked old and lonesome and strong and stalwart. It belongs there and it is still doing its job. Miami had no central clock but we had something pretty darn great. The Catholic church, Gesu, was in downtown Miami and they rang their bells to count the hours. They rang every 15 minutes during the day so you always knew the time. My Great Grandmother lived within a block of the church (more Cathedral than church) and she enjoyed the bell as did all the students at the school (so much closer to lunch, lol). Wish we had a clock as fine as these but since we didn’t, the bells were a nice consolation prize.

  3. Love all of these, have been to Capri, Verona, Bologna, Orvieto and Siena…and my favorite is the one I actually climbed – Siena! It’s also where I lived.. A little biased…but all beautiful. I also like the towers I climbed in San Gimignano…but no clocks there…at least not where I climbed! Thanks for posting these, brings back lovely memories.

  4. Thank you Joy! I like that you climbed the tower in Siena. I haven’t done that and I’m sure the view was spectacular.

  5. Capri, Irvietto and Siena
