After seeing Florence from above from top of the Duomo, piazzale Michelangelo and from Fiesole, we doubted if its worth buying ticket to the tower of Palazzo Vecchio. Well it is. Tickets are comparably cheap and the view is great, especially to the Duomo. Of...More

The interiors have been restored by a private venture and have frescoes of a 1269 battle scene. A small prison room inside the tower would have held political prisoners; Savonarola, the perpetrator of "The Bonfire of the Vanities", was held here until his execution. Tours...More

It was a lengthy line and many steps. I’ve had a rougher climb but was well rewarded. This was ok but the circumstances, line, view etc… wasn’t worth it for me. Perhaps I’ve been spoiled with other views. If you are in shape and want...More

Been there with friends, we were two couples. We took a private tour with a guide, and he added one more couple to us. It worth the extra few euros. The palace is really amazing and after listening to the guide and know all the...More

We had to wait 50 minutes to get to climb this tower, but the wait was totally worth it. If the Duomo is the iconic image of Firenze, then obviously the one place you cabn't see it is from the Duomo. From this tower, on...More

Well worth the climb for great views of Florence. Only drawback is if it is raining the tower portion is closed but the terrace will still be open. The top of the tower allows unobstructed views of Florence. This tower is great for photography.

10€ entry, go to the top and enjoy the view, photographers might also like the roof you access on the way down from the top (they don’t let you there on the way up) as you find many holes in the walls where your lens...More

than Giotto’s Campanile. Towering over Palazzo Vecchio, it provides great views over Florence. Entrance to the tower is inside Palazzo Vecchio, it is free with the Firenze card so I do not know the cost to climb. Nevertheless, well worth the trek to the top.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
