If you visit Città di Castello in the Upper Tiber Valley and look at the town from afar you will notice a circular bell tower that features prominently on the skyline. Once you get into the town centre you might wonder if you had imagined seeing it, the tower is down a narrow alley and from many angles the view is obscured by other buildings, particularly the Duomo.
The tower’s circular shape is quite unusual in Italy but it’s main point of interest for the visitor to the town is the view of the rooftops and surrounding countryside that you get from the top. To gain access the tower you usually have to get the key from the cathedral museum and leave a document there as a deposit.
