  • It is possible to climb the steps of this tower to delight with the view of this beautiful city. Beautiful Tower.

  • The view is great. But the stairs are narrow, no room to pass, covered in pigeon droppings, and it is a long climb. A similar view is available in other places. 
  • the hard climb of more than 400 steps it is amply rewarded by the view you can enjoy from up there. not addressed the climb if there's fog or rain threat (closes).

  • 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!
