We joined the queue to climb Giotto’s Bell Tower a few minutes before it was due to open at 8.30am. It cost 10 euros, which also included entry to Brunelleschi’s Dome, the Baptistry of San Giovanni, the Crypt of Santa Reparata in Florence Cathedral and the Opera Museum. (The Opera Museum is closed though until November 2015). We purchased the... More

There is nothing you could not like, it is charming, old and be ready to climb over 400 steps. But the view from above is worth.

It's best if you go early or else you will stay a lot of the time wainting in line. If you buy Firenze Card it pays off because this is included. Amazing view despite all of the stairs you have to climb (they are 400 or something)

It is absolutely worth climbing this campanile. The views over Florence are tremendous – especially of Brunelleschi’s dome. The beauty of Giotto’s structure is overwhelming when viewed from almost any direction. This, in a city full of remarkable attractions, should be numbered high in your list of “to dos” but take it slowly!

Superb, tough I have not climbed it, I have seen it from the ground and from above, from the Cupola Brunelleschi.

Quite exausting (remember the water!) but worth climbing all the 400ish steps to the top. The view is amazing, specially the Duomo, which guarantee the best pictures :)

This is where you buy the group ticket to all of the Duomo group. We went first thing in the morning and there was no lineup or crowds on the stairs. There are several floors where the stairs end, and each time you think I made it!, only to realize there is more to go. Once at the top the... More

LOTS OF STEPS! But worth every one! Once you make it to the top you are rewarded with a stunning, breathtaking view of Florence. We thought this was better than the dome because you got the same view of Florence but also of the Duomo itself from right next door. Big plus - go early and there is practically no... More

After many steps, I thought I had reached the top then I realized I was only at first level. To climb up further, you would go to the corner and climbed more. You did this 3 times to reach the top (see sky and not roof). The stairs were a little bit easier to climb than Duomo and the wait... More

We did the free walking tour and were so made up we did as the history we were taught from the local guide and the sights he showed us were second to none, highly recommended to learn the history of this stunning place!!
