  • Best place in town for aperitifs at sunset as you overlook the Piazza Campo. We had the Aperol Spritz which came served with a bowl of potato crisps, some corn chips and taco sauce and then some raw s...  more »
  • Elegant and solemn Bill stands in the center of the Piazza del Campo, the entrance to the tower is free of charge, but it's worth the climb on top to stay fascinated by the view. The perspective is unique!

  • This is definitely the most beautiful view that one can have of Siena and its surrounding hills! Be earned since you have to climb many steps in a staircase very very close! Claustrophobic people beware!

  • Great 360 degree view from the 360 top of the tower. There is a charge, we paid 20 Euros for 2 adults and 1 child (aged 4). The climb to the top is in 2 stages, you only need to pay for the second stage. The first stage of the climb takes you to a plateau where you can see an overview of the square BUT not a 360 degree view.
  • Moderately challenging hike up to he top but the vistas are worth it and the €10. Stunning views.
  • When you start climbing, you aks yourself why did I paid for this, but when you're on the top, it's all worth it!
  • The most famous Sienese building. Do not miss it!
  • Best view in Siena, definitely worth climbing!
