Follow in the footsteps of ancient Romans at The bell tower of Aquileia - World Heritage Site, which you can climb to enjoy views from one of the tallest structures in the area. Before you begin to climb the stairs to the top, be sure to take a look at the remains of an original mosaic floor from the 4th century BC, over which the foundations of the current structure were erected in the 1300s. The mosaics were part of an ancient religious complex and depicted scenes from the Old Testament. The bells toll at noon each day, so it's probably best to time your visit for morning or later in the afternoon.

  • Well worth the climb up, and don't forget to look down at the mosaic before you start. I'm not sure I'd want to be up there at noon though!

  • extraordinary architectural work of the bishop Poppone; it dominates the landscape of Aquileia, signaling the presence of the prestigious basilica from afar; it rests on the ancient north hall of the basilica itself and allows from the top of its belfry to cast the view towards the sea and the mountains
  • It wasn't open to visitors in mid-August when I was there. otherwise suggestive.
