Create an itinerary including Campanile di Giotto
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 climb up the tower is quite a challenge 400 hundred steps plus! There are plenty of stages to rest so take your time. Not a lot to see inside as the main event is at the top! Excellent views all.....  more

  • When visiting the cathedral, go on the tour 100%, but when you are done, even if you are tired wait in the line for the tower. Some of the best views of the city. Of course, if you have an extra day in Florence you could always come back... But unlikely unless you are staying very close by (there are truly so many wonderful sights to see in Florence).
  • Entrance to the tower is 15 euros, which is not a small price. But I have to say that in the case of this particular tower, paying the entrance fee is worth it, mainly because of the amazing view you get. When you come to Florence, you have to see the city from above and this tower is the perfect way to do that.
  • It's a bit of a hike but it's easier to climb than the dome. Staircases are very narrow and it's two-way traffic. There's 3 floors where you can catch your breath. The view is amazing and you can visit the Campanile without adhering to time slots, and you can stay as long as you like.
  • So wonderful and great fulfilled so much to see and learn. Such a amazing experience. Great experience. Happy to be there
  • If you are not afraid to take ~400 steps to climb to the top you have to go there. You can buy ticket including entrance to the bell tower for 20€ (Florence's cultural and historical places are quite expensive to see). The place is crowded during high season but it is not a big deal. Take some water! Panorama views from the top are breathtaking. It is the best place to see majestic grand cupola of Il Duomo Cathedral.
