  • the tower is really wonderful, climb to the top offers a spectacle of Siena amazing. shame about the lack of cleanliness! Despite the difficulty in climbing the stairs, narrow and high, there is possibility to lean due to the presence of pigeon droppings, feathers and other dirt. Too bad!

  • 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!
