“Amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We climbed up the bell tower. It is a long and tiring climb without elevator, so is not for everyone. But once you reach the top the view is amazing and worth the effort.

“Great view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

414 steps to scale the Bell Tower, were well worth the hike for the outstanding view over the city of Florence.

“You can do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We climbed the tower! (and are in our late 50's) Just take your time and enjoy the view and photo opportunities at the different levels. It's worth it all to look out onto the rooftops of Florence.

“Worth the 414 steps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Take your time to climb the 414 steps to the top and it is well worth the fantastic view over Florence. Would have liked some sort of guide as to which buildings we could see but apart from that it was great.
