Campanile di Giotto, Florence

(4.7/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Before you head to Florence, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Florence tourist route planner, to make sure you see all that Florence has to offer, including Campanile di Giotto.

  • The Bell Tower is next to the Basilica. It is worth going up and down the 414 steps, which gives a view is much of the city. Wonderful!

  • Beautiful view, but make sure to reserve your ticket a few days in advance. We were able to book 1 day in advance, but we may have been lucky. It saves you from waiting in line for every aspect of Duomo attraction ticket (museum, dome, tower, etc). If you don't reserve, you can easily spend hours waiting in line in the hot sun, which is just not fun! For 5 attractions, it's only 15€. Definitely worth it, and everything was very beautiful and worth seeing!
  • Great place for views of Florence. The issue is that you have to tackle over 400 steps to get there. On another side it has several different levels where one can take pictures and rest or return back. On a bad side you have to share narrow corridors and steep stairs with people going to the opposite direction. Duomo climb seemed to bet harder since there is only one resting place before getting to the top but going down from Duomo was easier since entire way down is not shared with people going up unlike Bell Tower.
  • Definitely climb up here instead of the Cathedral. You get an incredible view of Florence, the Cathedral, the surrounding area and the winding streets. The climb can get a little tight near the top.
  • Giotto's Campanile is a must do when visiting Firenze. You need to have good physical condition to climb to the top. Climb on a evening, at sunset, for memorable photos. Beautiful part of the Duomo complex.
  • The Duomo itself is a beauty to behold, like no other church we'd ever seen. The tower and its 400+ steps allows for a fantastic view of this impressive building and a wonderful 360 of beautiful Florence. Well worth the time and effort!
