The campanile itself is fabulous and worth going up for breathtaking views. BUT It is included in a €15 ticket with 5 attractions in total. There are two queues, one shorter one for 'preferential tickets in advance' (this was an hours queue) and one longer one that was 2-3 hrs. My husband queued in the midday sun for an hour... More

Tackled the Duomo last year, so decided to do the Bell Tower this time around. The stair well can be quite narrow in places, so went early morning to avoid the queues. This made climbing the stairs less stressful and less awkward than it would be at peak times. There are over 400 steps and it is hard work, but... More

Crikey, this climb certainly lets you know how fit you are! But oh my gosh, it was a great view. I wanted to climb the dome but am a little claustrophobic (I've heard the dome climb is very narrow and airless, which I didn't fancy in the August heat) so we did the Campanile (bell tower) climb instead. There are... More

414 steps but several stopping points. Worth every step for the spectacular view. Not recommended for those with a heart condition, vertigo or claustrophobia!

Get the ticket to climb the Campanile as well as the Duomo. You get an unforgettable view of the Duomo and the city from Giotto's tower. Do take some water with you. It is a moderately difficult climb but totally worth it.

The Giotto`s Bell Tower simply dominates the Piazza del Duomo with interesting architecture too. the thing which I would like to recommend is that once you are there you climb up the stairs of the tower where one will surely have the best angle possible of both the Duomo and the Baptistery.

Never got enough of Florence!!!!!!!! A breath Taking View from the top but be ready for a long line and lot of steps to the top. Once you got up there, the view will take you breath away that you forgot how many steps you took to get there. It a must do when you're in Florence for sure.

The view from the top was well worth the wait in the queue. It is quite a climb, but there are landings you can pause on.

Its another of the many wonderful things of Florence but the lining up to enter is quite intense. You can access with same ticket for the Duomo so I advise to book on time a schedule You visit with advanced time!

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
