  • Perhaps historically has much to tell but currently little now remains. You should book previously to enter by groups.

  • The tower was used as a sighting because stagegica located and allowed the control from above city passing of enemy troops. It was renovated from time so as to recover the portion which had not yet collapsed. Very nice at night because illuminated by headlights placed at the foot of the tower. Is a good starting point for walks in the area of the Tower, just below there is the small church of San Cassiano opened only on special occasions but of great historical value.

  • La torre di Velate was part, together with others, of a complex system of signal towers and sighting, dating back to late Roman times. Now, there's not much left to look at (a good part of the structure collapsed) however the attraction is worth a visit. In addition, its location makes it a perfect destination for leisurely walks. It is worth noting that, not me to special occasions, is not open to the public.

  • Very beautiful tower, but not much to be seen apart from seeing it... it is actually fenced around (but you can still see it) and you need to make an appointment for someone to come unlock the gate and tour you.
  • Not a lot to see
