  • There were a lot of stairs to get on top but it was worth it. A beautiful panoramic view of the city of Florence and a great view of the mountains. The Dome and this tower offers the same view.  more »
  • Another amazing building in Florence. Hard to believe a place this beautiful is that old. The intricate exterior decorations were amazing.  more »
  • This campanile by Giotto is a beautiful landmark attached to the duomo with Brunelleschi's dome. There is so much magic here!  more »
  • Definitely worth the climb! If you are claustrophobic you should think twice about trying this tower. The space is very narrow! And it feels like it goes on forever! Lucky there are in total 3 "levels" so three resting spots that are spacious enough. There you can refresh and enjoy the view. What i didn't like is that the top was caged. So had to take picture through the grid.
  • Want to see the Duomo view without having to wait 3 hrs in line? This is it. Little hidden gem hardly talked about, no lines. Got 4 stars because well....... let's be honest, it's not the Duomo. But if you aren't concerned with that, this is a big win instead of waiting in line
  • The climb isnt that bad to the top, not the worst for narrowness(for me anyhow) gets very narrow when needing to pass someone. Would do again!(pics are just views from mid and 3/4 way up)
  • Pricey if you just go to the bell tower and the church especially when the church is free. However you get a nice workout on the upward hike to the top of the tower. I’d recommend going early to avoid t he congestion in the stairwell. I’d also say this is better than the dome since you can capture the dome in photos.
  • Not a long queue to get in, but you must have energy enough to step up more than 400 steps till the top. It is tight stairs and sometimes the are people moving in the opposite direction than you, what makes a queue wait for others to move forward. The view of each level is amazing, better view in the morning when the temperature is not too high during summer or late afternoon to appreciate the sunset.
