OK, look at the tower, but then check out the nearby Porte de San Pancrazio, which is one of the fortified city gates that is still standing. Now it functions as a short tunnel for cars to enter the old city.

Walked through on one our city walks. A nice area and nice tower similar to the elephant tower. Did not go in so can't speak for the views from the top.

A wonderful view of the city from the tower. Although, there are narrow and steep stairs to the top, I recommend it for the view.

This one looked better preserved than the elephant tower. There's more foot traffic. Angles of the tower look better from the outside of the gates. It's on one end of the medieval street on which the cathedral (duomo) is located.

Very similar to Torre dell'Elefante, which is explainable as they were designed by the same architect few hundred years ago, the Tower of San Pancrazio is situated in the core of the historic centre and from its high position at the top of its area,...More
