This was my 3rd visit to the top of the tower but the first with my 8 year old daughter. Although it's a steep climb, it's actually easier than it looks and well worth the effort because the views are unbelievable. Well worth the effort and worth combining with the museum ticket which is also well worth the time.

Imposing on the piazza, a wonderful piece of architecture. Great views from the top, and you can get a timed entry as there is a limit if 25 people at a time.

Brilliant piece of architecture, very impressive to look at and very well preserved. There are 505 steps up to the top.

Certainly worth a climb to the top of this tower to get a fantastic view of the city. Only 25 people are allowed up at a time but don't worry about having to queue. When you buy your ticket from the ticket office, they give you a timed entry.

Worthwhile climb, 387 steps so be prepared. Steep narrow steps leading to a great view in all directions.

Definitely worth doing the 400 stairs to the top of this tower for awesome views of Siena and the surrounding hills of Tuscany. The walk up wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be (although my calf muscles are a bit sore a couple of days later!). It didn't seem like 400 steps and after the first few slightly... More

It is a tough climb especially on a hot day. But like everyone else who has written a review, this was a view worth seeing. Highly recommended.

Lots of steps - a good workout to counteract all of the eating you do in Italy! The views of Siena and the Tuscan countryside were breathtaking! And there are levels along the way, where you can either rest, or decide to turn around. Some of the stairwells are quite narrow, so if you have some claustrophobia, just be aware.

Well worth a visit if you can manage the steps to the top, great views of Piazza del Campo below and across the rooftops of Siena. Also the frescoes in the town hall itself are amazing

I would not visit Siena without climbing il Torre del Mangia. The view is just splendid and on a sunny day you can see far into the tuscan countryside.
