The Mangia Tower is stunning....and sits right on the city centre square. If you are lucky to have a "blue sky" behind, it will make for absolutely great photos. Sienna is a charming delightful city....you feel like you are in ancient Europe. Well worth the visit.

Height is impressive. Clock and bells work just fine. The city hall as it is now can be visited and the tower climbed.

The was the first of many towers we climbed in Italy. Climbing towers became one of our quests. It was 400 plus steps up and well worth the climb. Sienna was spread out before us below. The square, the city, and the surrounding countryside. We had to wait a bit because only allow so many people up at any given... More

Worth the climb in the narrow and steep stairs and after all the 8 euros to get up. Great view on the Piazza, the city and around it. You have to wait a bit to get up - as they let people in by small groups - but you can stay as long as you want. Despite my fear of... More

500 or so steps and the stair ways are very tight so you have to stand to the side as people squeeze past. There was a great view from the top. The kids and I enjoyed it a lot, so it was worth the 8 Euro each price tag.

We recently visited this tower on a Sunday morning and unlike a lot of other reviews below we did not have to wait in line or follow a set time limit and so could spend as much time as we wanted at the top. While this was great in one sense it also meant that there was two way traffic... More

Standing in the Piazza del Campo, you can look up the Tower and see people all the way up looking down. They look so small and you wonder, if you really should attempt to get up there. We stood on line and bought the Opa Si Pass, that is good for four attractions to be entered over a period of... More

If you want what could be THE best view in Italy, take the time and energy to climb this bell tower. Climbs are scheduled and spread out to avoid traffic congestion in the tiny and confined staircase. It is very well organized.....much better than the bell tower in Florence! You are able to check your handbag or camera bag for... More

Have to say it's a must when in town. Really amazing view over the city. You should know: Take care of the small steps. 8 € only for the tower is a bit too much. You have to leave your bags, even your camera bag in a locker.
