One of the tallest secular towers in the World, its the third tallest within Italy, its has an interesting representation in its size since it has the same height as the Siena Cathedral, symbolizing that the state and the church have the same power. You can go up for an interesting perspective of the city but you need to buy... More

This tower looked a lot more strenuous than it actually was. The climb took around 12-15minutes and the views on the top were stunning. It was actually easy enough to climb as it wasn't hot and there was wind going through the tower. Definitely do it if you're in Siena !

Fantastic "must do" in Siena. A great climb to the top with such good views over the roof tops of Siena. Make sure you buy your ticket early - they will allocate a time for your climb. We had an hour to kill between buying the tickets and our time so we went for a gelato! Also you have to... More

Loved this piazza. We were there just two days after the Palio race held in the square. Ate the best salmon gnocchi I've ever had. My husband walked the tower while I shopped - it was a magical afternoon.

What a view from the top - but Wow, a lot of narrow steps!!! If you've done the Arc de Triomphe & Notre Dame top, then this is for you. If you're outta shape, have claustrophobia or a touch of knee arthritis - it's best to pass on this one. But for those climbers there's an unparrelled view of Siena...

Amazing tower in the pizza del Campos giving breathtaking views over Siena and beyond. Tickets purchased easily at 10.10am (there were about 15 people in front of us, but when the office opened, we moved along quickly). We purchased a family ticket 2 adults and 2 kids 9 & 10 1/2 for 20€. We were told to go up straight... More

A friend told us this is a must do - we're glad we followed her advice! While it's a lot of climbing (400 steps I think), the view from the top is amazing! Note - you can't take any purses, bags or backpacks up to the top - after you climb up a few flights, they have lockers available. The... More

This is third tallest medieval tower in Italy, many stair to go to the top, but it is not so hard, since the condition of them is quite good. But when you achieve top, view is absolutely breathtaking!

Sure there maybe a couple hundred stairs...but who is counting once you reach the top and see one of the most commanding views in all of Italy!
