  • Built in 1200 to control access to the Piazza Vecchia, it seems that its name derives from the Latin word "compitum", which could mean "crossing", to find the Tower right in the place where agreed cardus and decumanus maximus. Today is owned by the city and in the ground floor houses the office of tourism of the city. It has a height of 52 metres and is accessible to the viewpoint that it is on its highest rising 263 steps. The season of visits is very limited: only opens to the public on Mondays from early April to early October, with three shifts in the morning and three in the afternoon, allowing only access ten people in each of them. It is obligatory prior reservation at the office of tourism. The entrance is free. From the viewpoint, there are magnificent views of the city.

  • Great view, must see if you visit Bergamo. Would book in advance in summer. Guide is really nice although his English is definitely not perfect, but he is trying! :)
  • Magical night place with a magnificent view of the city
  • La torre del Gombito deserves to be seen, we wanted to go back today, years later, for the feast of the patron saint of Bergamo having seen on days that would remain open even the night ... pity that once you arrive on site found it was reservations only but It was not written on the giornale di bergamo it elsewhere. If you can get into it definitely deserves, pity the poor availability!

  • Visits can be booked at the Tourist Office at the base of the Tower, with scheduled times and a maximum number of people. The climb is hard enough as it is to do the whole walk, but the view from the top of the tower with a beautiful effort widely repays the plain out of the upper town and the mountains beyond.

  • The Gombito tower was taller and was lowered x reduce the risk of collapse. In the upper town there were many towers representing the most illustrious families of Bergamo. Remember the towers of many Tuscan towns such as San Gimignano.
