As my review states for the Cupola del Brunelleschi, you do not need to climb both as the views are very similar. This was the first of our climbs and it was not for the feint hearted or unfit. A total of 414 steps await you. As we climbed the Bell Tower, we soon realised that there were very few... More

app. 500 steps to the top makes one sweat and huffing and puffing. But don't let this scare you - go up and get amazed of the view.

A ticket to the bell tower is inclusive with your ticket to the Duomo. This ticket cost 10 euro and lets you do the Cupola, the bell tower, the crypts of the Duomo, the Baptistry, and the museum of the Duomo (this is closed as of now). To get to the top of the tower, it's about 414 stairs I... More

Don't attempt this if you are claustrophobic! The winding stone staircase is very narrow, but the view is your reward once you make it to the top. Buy the combined ticket which grants you access to the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Brunelleschi's Dome, the Baptistry of San Giovanni, the Crypt of Santa Reparata and the Opera Museum.

What a climb! If you find yourself on the platform under the bells, if the bells start ringing get onto the stairs going up or down. It's a bit quieter. If you buy a all in ticket for the Campinale, Doumo, Museum and Cathedral, be warned, the ticket says it is valid for six days, once you start using it... More

Standing at the top of the Duomo i looked across at the Bell Tower and stupidly decided it would be a good idea to climb it straight after leaving the Duomo. My legs killed but glad i did it for a bit of a workout. The ticket for the Duomo includes the Bell Tower so there was no extra charge... More

Shorter line than the Duomo and it has excellent views of the city. Also, you got a great look of the Duomo. The hike seemed a little harder than the Duomo because there wasn't as much stopping, but there are multiple open areas to take breaks and look around while on your way up. Still hard if you're claustrophobic, but... More

Love the view of the Duomo. There were enough stops/platforms along the way to take breathers so we weren't completely exhausted at the top.

Climb up for view of the dome of the Duomo and across the city. This doesn't take long and is 360° beautiful views.
