It´s a must see, when you are in Siena. It takes a while to get to the top and it´s a bit chlautsophobic, but it´s worth it. The best view you can have from the city and the landscape around.
Bad heart, knees, vertigo, claustrophopics need not apply. Otherwise give it a go. Take your time, it's steep and if it's crowded you can't tear up it anyway. The reward is one of the best views in all of Tuscany. The piazza takes on new meaning from above and you really get a sense for how crazy the Palio is.... More
The view from the top was fantastic and the walk was not very challenging although was quite narrow at times. Great view of the piazza below and the surrounding hillside.
Beautiful landscape! The climb is hard but the view from the top of the tour repays the effort. The price is not so cheap to be honest (8 euros) but it's worth! Forget it if you suffer from vertigo or you're travelling with small children.
I usually do not opt out of an activity because it seems to strenuous, and with a mild sense of apprehension got in line to check every piece of hand baggage but a camera. The need to do this became clear -- there is no room to carry anything. My mild sense of claustrophobia was exacerbated as we made turn... More
We hadn't planned to do this. Knew it would be too much for us, as we're getting old and out of shape with only two good knees between the two of us. We still don't know how it happened, but we ended up in a line, thinking we just going to exit the building; the next thing we knew we... More
Go on top to have a great view on one of the most beautifull piazza in the world. Be carefull though if you are afraid of hights and thight spaces, this one might not be for you!
Can't vouch for the view, but we chickened out as the stairs are so narrow you are not allowed anything but your camera. All bags must be checked, although we were allowed to carry water. Started up and although we could have managed the stairs, (climbed plenty of other towers), once you start there are no rest stops or even... More
Yes, there are a lot of steps but it really is worth the effort. We had a view over all of Siena and beyond and I'm so glad we didn't miss this. It just brings back pleasant memories when I look at the photographs taken from there.
Tower is located on Piazza del Campo and overlooks entire Siena. View is beautiful, but we felt rushed during whole stay on the tower. When we just came up to the entrance (2-3rd floor) there is a bathroom that we wanted to use, but 2 ticket attendants were rushing us not to stay and go up: “Go up! Go up!..”.... More
