“Literally ‘towering’ over Florence, the 95 mt. height Tower of Palazzo Vecchio is one of the city's unmistakable symbols and focal points. It is also one of the oldest parts of the building built between 1299 and the early 14th century, possibly to a design by Arnolfo di Cambio, as the seat of the city's government.” (The Tower of Palazzo Vecchio, Musei Civici Fiorentini)
