“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I really enjoyed touring this historical structure. The art and architecture were very impressive.
Plenty to keep my interest as my attention span ran very short in the uffizi.
The views from tower were a must see as well.

“Take the tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

The tour is a mere 2 Euros on top of the price of a ticket and you'd be a fool not to take such an interesting tour. Ours lasted 2 hours which is amazing value.

If you don't have much of a head for heights or are a bit dodgy with steps, the first level of the tower is just 50 steps and offers pretty much the same amazing view of the city as all the other levels.
