  • Love everything about it - pity one can't get on top of the tower itself. The hike goes through a couple of villages, fairly picturesque, and through hilly woods. You have to cross the rail tracks...

  • Worth a walk if you're feeling fit, steep uphill for 1/4 Mike. Good views from the tower but nothing much there. Shame you can't go up the tower!
  • Nice place for a very quick walk. Good in winter.. the trees in summer will block most of the view
  • Great views that make the climb worthwhile. Get there soon as the surrounding trees are growing and obscuring the view!
  • Nice old tower (or what remained of it). The property cannot be entered though, an appointment is required.
  • Some time ago a poet said "it is small but characteristic" here is the tower of Buccione is only small. It has its charm only when viewed from afar and up close instead you can have fun reading the sign with the engraved writings of the people, very creative and nice. I recommend going in the rain, much more exciting. Votes: Location: 3 Attractions: 1 Information: 4 Tourism: 2.5 Cost: 5
