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!!

climbing 400+ narrow steps is a bit easy than Duomo and you will be rewarded with breathtaking view of Florence from the top. For me the view was much more beautiful than from Duomo because you can see the Cathedral and Duomo. Pre booked your ticket and come early, bring a bottle of water and fan. If you are claustrophobic... More

We did the climb right on 10am in July on a hot day, which was the best time after that the queues get very long, we only waited 10 minutes and the entrance fee also gives you access to other attractions. This was the hardest of all the climbs we had done, the stairs are steep about 400 in total,... More

We arrived at the Campanile 20 mins after it opened, and there was no queue. (about 10am). The ticket cost 10 euro, and I believe that you can also go into the Grande museo del Duomo with this ticket too. I am not very good with confined spaces or heights, so was worried whether I would be comfortable doing this!... More

Although I am afriad of heights, my brother, husband and I ventured up the Campanile di Giotto in Florence in July 2014. There was about a 15 minute wait in line to get in. Once we paid to enter (approximately 10 or 14 Euro, I cannot remember exactly) we began our ascent up the stairs towards the top. As we... More
