You need to plan your visit, book at least 1 day earlier because even outside the high season (end of November) there is plenty of people wishing to climb all that stairs. It takes in slow pace approx. 20 minutes to get at the top but plan enough time to make pictures and enjoy the views at each level. At... More

Totally worth it if you are capable of climbing stairs. The views from top are gorgeous. It's not as high as the Cathedral next door but very close.

If you visit the city you have to visit the campanile, it is fantastic. The views on the top are absolutely spectacular. Just a recommendation, try to book or arrange your visit in advance, otherwise you'll have to spend an hour in the queue.

Campanile di Giotto has spectacular architecture located in the piazza near the Duomo. My wife and I did not climb the 414 steps. We were impressed by viewing the tower from ground level. It is surrounded by some of Florence's most recognizable buildings.

Another must see place in the Florence - Campanile di Giotto. It has a great historical fact in the development of Florence. If you are in here, you have to visit it and most important to go inside that tower. Was constructed by very famous architect Giotto.

This is a good climb and prepares you well for the dome climb. If you feel too tired with this one, then you should think twice about the dome because not only is it higher, but it also has more twist and turns. The tower itself is beautiful featuring many carved mural that describes the lives of Florentino at the... More

It ´s a lovely tower, with very very very small stairs passages, so that people who go up have to stop when people are going down, and yes, it´s high, but the views from above are totally worth it.

After Duomo climb to Cupola,we were having second thoughts,but am glad we did still go up the 414 steep narrow steps through a narrow passage.Good thing is can stop and rest at different levels as you climb up and allow people to go down or up as only way up and down. Views of Duomo from top and Florence is... More

Funny to think we paid less than 10 EUR to endure a 414 step climb, with a couple of places to stop and catch your breath, during our vacation. However, we were up for the challenge and made it to the top with a little sweat and heavily breathing. Do not let that scare you, I had seen people of... More

A tiring, winding and claustrophobic climb up, after a loooong wait in the line for it (they only let X ppl inside at a time), but the view was definitely worth it.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
