This one was easier to climb. Had a nice view but too, too many tourists. Stick with Turnul Sfatului it's better and has a better view.

The Tower of Stairs is a beautiful spot to enter the amazing Old Town of Sibiu due to its pitoresque views and as well its nice tunnel that really can introduce you into the Medieval atmosphere of the city.

The city is fun to walk around during the day, however at night areas like this come into its own. Especialy these streets and walkways, the flying buttresses add to the effect, of walking through tunnels.

When you're in the city its a must place to visit, for the cheap price and the views you got for the "Piata Mare"

It's part of the medieval defensive wall and it's worth stopping by to see the interesting architecture. You can also find some restaurants and a souvenir shop in the area.
