St. Peter's Church tower is sadly accessed by elevator. While the elevator makes the viewing area accessible to people with limited mobility, it stucks the fun and atmosphere out of the tower. The viewing area is clogged with people, which wouldn't happen if you had...More

Expensive entry at 9 euros per person but the view is fantastic! There aren't many stairs as you take a lift up most of the way.

It's 9 euros visit for the tower and church. But the view is unique. I liked the view although the price is a bit excessive

There is a small cost to take the elevator, and the views are wonderful. You must go up a flight of stairs to get to the elevator, so it is not handicapped accessible. The whole visit would take about 15 minutes.

View is nice on a nice and clear day! Pretty expensive even for me as a local, so not going there very often! Exhibition is worth to look and is for free!

The view from the church was beautiful but it is a bit pricy to get up there (9 euros). After going up and coming down (elevator goes every 10 mins), you have a chance to go around the church itself. You can see the same...More

The 9 euro charge is well worth it as you are able to get a good perspective of the city from this height. The 360 degree view also allows for the taking of some amazing photographs.

Being located in the heart of the Old Town, St. Peter's church offers probably the best view of it. You have to pay the entrance ticket of 9 Euro but I believe it is well worth the money. I suggest you visit it in the...More
