Clock Tower Tour/ Torre dell'Orologio (venezia) with vertigo?

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites

Would love some help from someone who has been to the Venezia Clock Tower (Torre dell'Orologio).

My Mum suffers occasionally from vertigo and the tour comes with this warning:
"The interior of the Clock Tower comprises various small spaces linked by narrow and steep stairs; The visit is not recommended for pregnant women or for those who suffer from claustrophobia, vertigo or heart conditions and respiratory diseases. "

So, my questions are, what was your impression of its small spaces / narrow steps? did you feel uneasy?

and secondly, did you enjoy the clock tower tour?

With some coaxing, I have managed to get Mum into some places that are tricky for those suffering vertigo. Just trying to work out whether to buy a ticket for Mum or let her loose on the shops solo.

Thanks Fodorites :)
