About Lamberti Tower
The Tower of Lamberti is a Medieval Tower in Verona, 84 meters high, rising from Piazza Erbe in the old town. Its construction started in 1172 by the will of the family of the same name. In May of 1403 lightning struck the tower and only in 1448 began the restoration and elevation, which lasted until 1464.
Originally the tower had a lower height than today and the different ages of construction is still visible due to the different materials used. The large clock was added later in 1779.
