It's well worth the steps to climb the bell tower. Go all the way up to the very top. It's worth it.

Quite a few steps that get a little narrow and claustrophobic at times, especially when people are going up and down, but the view from the top of all of surrounding Siena is gorgeous! There a few stops along the way towards the top of the tower to stop enjoy a little bit as well.

It is 400 steps from ground, mind your head at some places. You get a marvelous look over the piazza il campo and into the landscape of tuscany.

Perfect for climbing and picture taking. Just fun. How can anyone skip the tower from where you can see all of Siena? Narrow steps that may deter some who r Leary of tight spaces.

The tower is truly an icon of the city of Siena. Although it is attached to Palazzo Pubblico, you need to have a separate ticket to climb up the tower, it is not included in the entrance ticket to the Museo Civico of Palazzo Pubblico, although a combo ticket is available. On a clear day, the view from the top... More

The climb up this medieval tower is well worth it for the unsurpassed views it affords of the city. It is popular and there will be a queue. We bought tickets on the day and then had to wait about 30 mins for our allotted time to begin our ascent. Some sections of the stairway are quite narrow and meeting... More

A lot of stairs, but nothing that anyone that can handle walking around Sienna can't do. The view of the city and surrounding countryside is amazing.

A long narrow stair to be enjoyed up to the 360º amazing view of the town and of the surroundings, up to where the sight allows. The climb leaves you breathless and the sight by the tower as well. It's worth to spend the 8 euros of the ticket to enjoy this experience. An appropriate solution to be asked to... More
