The Tower of Palazzo Vecchio, accompanied by its crenellated patrol path, is reigning over Florence with its 95 metres in height and it is one of the city's unmistakable symbols and focal points. It's one of the oldest parts of the building, built between 1299 and the early 14th century, probably designed by Arnolfo di Cambio. Inside the Tower, a stone staircase with 223 steps leads to the last level of the crenellated path, that offers you a spectacular view of the city. Along the path there is a small cell, called “Alberghetto”, where were imprisoned Cosimo the Elder in 1433 (before he was exiled from Florence, for one year, on a charge of plotting against the Republic) and Girolamo Savonarola in 1498 (waiting to be exectued as a heretic in Piazza della Signoria).
