“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Great views - well worth the climb and the couple of quid (sorry, Euros) that it costs!

We'd already climbed the Duomo dome and the Plazzo Vecchio tower, so we weren't going to bother, but were pleased that we did as you get a different view of Florence and great 'close-ups' of the architectural detail of the Duomo.

“Amazing views of Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Superb attraction well worth a visit and the few€ entry charge. Views from the top are stunning, really gives you a sense of location and a taste of the architecture and style of Florence.

Beware- there are many signs warning but the stairs are very narrow and with people coming up/down at the same time it might be a problem if you are elderly, unstable on your feet, have young children etc-

“Go here first to get your tickets! No line”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We stopped by the bell house first to get out tickets for all the Duomo attractions. It allowed us to skip all the lines at the other places and not to wait to buy tickets anywhere.

Be careful going up and down the stairs - it is very narrow - but everyone was courteous and tried to let each other by. What a view!

“Nice climb and views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Well it's a beautiful exterior and you get great views of the duomo and surrounds but that's it- no extra learning or history or art so if you like climbing stairs and want a good view of the duomo then it's 6 Euro and a florence quickie! Anyway I liked the photo options.

“Amazing view!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Such a fantastic climb up..the passages almost drift you trough time, carved out and looking old..passage got thinner as you get higher so you have to wait for a person to pass before you go through yourself..not for the claustrophobic much, but its not too bad...there are breathtaking views at the top, worth the quadriceps cramps, the small areas and the small fee (6euros i think)...A must see ^_^
