    Awesome place and magical, obligatory stop in Siena! Piazza del campo is dominated by this tower where you can climb. We were lucky enough to visit Siena a few days after the palio, full of decorations of the winning contrada

    Beautiful Tower of nearly 100 meters high! Dominates the town and is certainly the most famous monument in Siena.

  • By far the most amazing view of Siena. Climb right to the top! The landscape is stunning. It's €10, but worth it. Also has a toilet you can access free before you enter
  • Slightly frightening but amazing views. Well worth the effort and the price.
  • 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.
  • You haven't been to Siena, if you haven't been to Piazza del Campo and saw Torre del Mangia. It's magnificent.
  • Moderately challenging hike up to he top but the vistas are worth it and the €10. Stunning views.

Where to stay in Siena

To enjoy panoramic views of Siena's historical old town, check into a luxury hotel in the city center. If you are looking to escape the activity of the main tourist areas, consider staying at a hostel or guesthouse just outside the central areas. Private multi-room villas in the residential neighborhoods offer landscaped outdoor space and secure parking. For something a little different and considerably less expensive, explore one of many B&Bs in the vineyards and olive groves of Siena's countryside.
