Campanile di Giotto, Florence

4.8
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.

  • My gosh ALOT of steps to climb! But thankfully these are wide steps with handle bars! Alot easier to climb than a few towers I've been up! We were fortunate to climb these on a sunny day so we got...  more »
  • The Giotto Bell Tower is truly an impressive structure. With a ticket purchased at the Cathedral Museum entrance you can climb to the top of the tower for some truly incredible views of the city...  more »
  • Steps steps steps, but more than worth it, unbelievable view from the top. You can rest several places on the way up. Get there early morning to beat the queue, it can go on around the block and back!  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.
