We actually didn’t go in the building here but the steps are worth a look as they date back several hundred years

After visiting the tower you can access the art gallery by this staircase. After climbing the tower it was not too taxing climbing this staircase. From artwork in the gallery you can see that this area has not changed too much over the centuries.

A beautiful staircase that features in many of the works of art in the museum at the top. The staircase was once covered when the piazza was a market place. The stairs also play a role in the 'Romeo and Juliet' performance around the city.
