Fantastic views of Florence and the Duomo and a must if you are able to climb the 400+ steops. Be warned, the staircases are very narrow and busy. It is worth the climb but claustrophobics may find this difficult.

We climbed every tower we could in Florence and thoroughly enjoyed this one. If you are going to be in Florence for three days, it's wise to invest in the Firenze Card (72 euros - good for 72 hours) which not only gets you into just about every site, but gets you to the front of the line.

A landmark! Not much else to say about it. Giotto May have built the tower in Venice , but unknown for now.

We couldn't face the queue for the Duomo, so opted for this instead. I'm so glad we did as the view is stunning. It's a lot of steps (414 I believe) so it's best to just get your head down and plod on. Generally we found Firenze to be a bit busy, so it was nice to get out of... More

Better be fit to climb the over 400 stairs of the tower, but boy is it ever worth it for the view, once thing though, either climb the tower or the dome, both are quite a challenge

The stairs going up to the top of the bell tower are really narrow. There is two way traffic and you have to stop to let others pass. The view at the top is totally worth all of the stairs (over 400). But don't fret! There are platforms to take a breather.... but getting to the first platform is the... More

Excellent views from the top, especially on a clear day without too much humidity in the air, you can see for miles past the city. Breathtaking picture opportunities. The biggest annoyance are the crowds of tourists jamming the narrow stairs in both directions. It would be better if they organized turns of people going alternatively up or down, as they... More

Lots of steps up narrow passages are worth the view from the top! Amazing vie of Duomo and Florence.

Beautiful view from the top and well worth going inside even though it costs money. It provides a great view on the Al Duomo.
