Please note: the climb to the top of the bell tower depends on access, and there's not always someone there to give access.
Wear flat comfortable shoes. There are cobble stones everywhere and high heeled shoes will get stuck between them. It is best to always carry a small umbrella as one never knows when it will rain. During summer there are frequent thunderstorms in the late afternoon.
