Torre dei Lamberti, Verona

The Torre dei Lamberti is the tallest of Verona’s towers at 83 meters and looms high over the Piazza delle Erbe. Its construction began in 1172 and took several centuries to complete. In May 1403 lightening struck the top of the tower knocking off the top. It was later decided to raise the tower even higher and restoration work began, this lasted from 1448 to 1463. The octagonal end of the tower contains the two bells the “Rengo”, once used for storm warnings and the “Marangona” used to call the citizens to arms to defend the city or to call a meeting of the council. The clock on the tower was only added in 1779. There are 238 steps to the top of the Lamberti Tower (there is also a lift available, although there are also some final steps) views from the top are breathtaking over the city of Verona and beyond.

Cuisine and Wines of Veneto


The cuisine of the Veneto region of Italy can be divided into three main parts, the coastal areas, the plains and the mountains each of which produce their own specialties. The Veneto is essentially an agricultural region which produces wheat, maize, olive trees, vines and mulberry bushes.

On the north-east coast you will find Veneto, home to Venice, where Risotto is found in many guises, made with fish and seafood along the coast and asparagus, pumpkin or other vegetables further inland, with specialties such as Risotto alla Sbirraglia: spring chicken and lean veal braised with rice and vegetables and Risotto Primavera: diced string beans, artichokes, tomatoes, carrots and potatoes with peas and asparagus tips and braised with rice in the spring.
