The bell tower of the Cathedral of St. Peter is the second “tower” of the city (m. 70) and houses the biggest bell playable “bolognese” (so rhythmic and full rotation of the bell) and weighs 33 tons. The windows of its views of the hills and the old town is really priceless. The Campanile is open Saturday and Sunday from 14 to 16.30 (info 051 222112)
