A lot of steps to get to the top but well worth the view of Florence. You can approach from a different direction that is not as steep but it's longer. Get a cab if you have mobility issues. It was busy up there in January but there was plenty of space. I imagine in Spring it will be heaving and difficult to get a good view.
