The tower has two bells, the big one called Rengo to shake the whole council meeting; the little Marangona signaled the fire and the hour.

Courage to climb next to the big bell is very fun, but some of the tower guards, he reminded me not to bump into the ring, it is noise. Paying 5 Euros (6 dollars) for visiting the tower, many people guide me to take only 16 dollars (18 dollars) that can visit all the attractions of Verona.
