After 414 steps, you'll arrive at the top of the bell tower, with a splendid view of Firenza (Florence) and its surrounding hills. Be fit (quite some steps) and not claustrophobic (very small stairs), where you sometimes have to wait to let the other pass in the opposite direction. You can see the top of the Duomo, with its own... More

Integrated in the duomo complex, the tower is appealing in its own right. It is a stark but stunning structure in contrast to he cathedral. We didn't ascend it but were told that it offers a spectacular view.

What a view from up there, you can see all Florence and beyond! The stairs are steep and you come across smelly people going up and down this restricted stairway, but it is surely worth it.

Avoid visiting this on weekends- or go very early. The staircases are quite narrow (though not as bad as in the Duomo), but if you are met with a large group of tourists, it can be tricky. There are several levels. So even if you do not want to go all the way to the top, try level 1, 2... More

Giotto's campanile is worth visiting. Although a big climb, you can a beautiful view of the Duomo and Florence

If you have enough energy to go up 414 steps, the view from top is spectacular with the Duomo in the background and the whole of florence from different angles. Beat the line and book a cumulative online ticket for €15 which will grant you access to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's Bell Tower, the... More

The views are stunning at every level, you cannot miss climbing Giotto's Campanile (bell tower). We had a lot planned that day but I am grateful we did the climb to see great views of Florence including the Duomo.

It is hard to sell the Giotto Bell Tower when you can go up the dome. I heard that now a days you get one ticket for both but if you have to choose I'd definitely go up the dome any day of the week rather than the bell tower.

I visited Florence 1st week Sept. 2015 & have to say loved it! I take back what I said a couple of years ago. It is crowded but clean and nice. Easy to get around as well. I did the Campanile stair climb, as I like to call it. Not for folks who are claustrophobic & cannot handled slightly crowded... More

Well, you may climb to the top of Duomo as well but if you go up to this tower, you can see the Duomo and Florence at the same time. Ticket is sold as a package thus it's better to climb up here...490 steps...first 120 steps and rest then 3 resting places after 80 steps in average and then the... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
