“Pay the 6 euros, you'll be forever grateful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Like all travel, eventually u come to something as amazing as this and go, nope, im not paying anything more! My wife said this at the ticket office, but i cajoled her into it and by George she is grateful tonight! We all climbed the 423 odd stairs to the top, gratefully stopping at the five levels on the way up to catch breath and make sure that pain in the chest wasn't in fact a heart attack! Seriously though, if u are overweight and or unfit, i would not consider this. The space inside is cramped with people moving both ways and it is a long way up. But the final view is so amazing!

“climb the stairs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

the 414 steps is worth the climb and you will be rewarded with an excellent view including the Duomo (don't climb the Duomo so that you can take picture of it + unobstructed sunset)

“the bells work fine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Our hotel was right next door, and the bells were better than the best alarm clock. Only saw this from the outside; no idea if you can go inside and have a look around

“Florence' Bell Tower near Duomo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

About 250 years before Renaissance, the architectural and exterior design genius of Giotto expressed here perhaps better than anywhere else. And wait to hear the bells ring...

Stunning view of the entire city from the top. Chance to take pretty pictures of the Basilica and the Baptistery.
