Campanile di Giotto, Florence

4.7
Climb more than 400 steps to the top of Campanile di Giotto to enjoy views of Florence. At a height of almost 90 m (280 ft), the 14th-century tower features seven antique bells and is considered a masterpiece of Florentine Gothic architecture. Admire the ornate detail of the tower's exterior styling, which includes several reliefs, statues, and carved panels. Wear good walking shoes for the hike to the top, because the stairs are narrow and steep. Your admission ticket also provides entry to the adjoining cathedral, baptistery, and museum.

  • The architecture and style of these buildings around the Duomo is amazing. Take time to look and take in the surrondings, they are beautiful.  more »
  • Climb with many steps and tiring. However, not found it was worth the effort, because the Windows have protective screen, the pictures. Best climb in the chapel.

  • If you visited duomo cathedral, and went all the way up, no need to go up again the same route in the tower next to duomo. As the view is not same as from cathedral, it is not seen clearly as you are ...  more »

  • We went here since the cathedral was sold out. The line was reasonable (about 1 hour). It was good to get some exercise with climbing the stairs- challenging but not exhausting. There were a few rest stops along the way which was good to catch your breath without holding up the whole line. The rest stops were a larger open area, so you also get a break from the narrow stairwell.
  • Very bad experience with security today at about 2pm. Someone was throwing glass from one of the higher floors down into the tower. I explained this to one of the guards at the bottom who just kept saying "which floor", so I said the one with the grate to allow you to throw glass into the tower (only one floor has grating. He kept saying "which floor". I showed him a picture of a grate on my phone, but he just kept asking which floor. I kept saying the only one with a grate. I didn't count the floors as I went up and I certainly didn't give them a number as I passed them so I had no idea what to say. Think he basically didn't want to do his job, because he understood perfectly.
  • Booked a ticket the night before, which offers access to the museum and the baptistery also. Great if you are too late to book a time for the dome, and gives pretty comparable views to the dome. I personally preferred it as you could get city view pictures with the dome in it. It’s a lot of steps, however, so not recommended for those with chronic pain or other conditions that prevent activity. Lineup for the tower is also very little.
  • Amazing craftsmanship. Unbelievable when you see how huge the church is, and realize they had no power tools or equipment at that time. All work by hand, and archetectual design. No metal superstructure holding it all together. The different color stone also adds to the beauty. The bronze door across from the main cathedral entrance is so detailed. The entire complex shows how amazing is man when he needs to be.
  • Great view of Florence. I would recommend arriving early as you may run into others going the opposite way on the stair case. It's a long way up bring water and a nice camera.
