Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Every Monday night at 9:15 pm through the skiing season the town of Bormio throws a party on this piazza. People wear traditional folk costumes. They serve up hot mulled punch (or maybe it's mulled wine) and sweet bread. There is a DJ who encourages the visitors to dance. It's a lot of fun.

The Torre is situated in a quaint piazza. The piazza offers great views of the surrounding mountains. The two eating establishments in the piazza were not so appealing visually.

The Torre delle Ore - or Civic Tower - is an imposing 14th century bell tower that dominates the heart of the historic centre, becoming itself a symbol of Bormio in the central Piazza Cavour.

Also known as Torre della Bajona, it takes its name from the large bell which, thanks to its extraordinary dimensions, in the past with its tolling called the population of the town and the surrounding valleys to gather in the Kuerc to attend the meetings of the Council and actively participate to the administration of the town, but also marking the life of the people, the owners' celebrations and events of threats and danger.
Not only that: the Tower delimited the ancient walls of the city border and, together with 31 other towers in the surrounding area, served as a defensive system.

In this regard, legend has it that, playing loudly to alarm the town of the imminent invasion of the Visconti troops, the Bajona fell from the bell tower, shattering. Legend aside, the bell was actually destroyed following the Visconti invasion in 1376 and the bells that ring today were obtained from the fusion of that one extraordinary bell.

Damaged over the centuries, renovated and partially destroyed by the fire of 1855, it still survives today, with its reassuring power and entirely restored façade, where a timepiece sundial (hence Torre delle Ore) and the ancient coat of arms of the municipality are visible of Bormio.
