The Campanile (bell tower) is amazing, so incredible and beautiful. You can stand there for a half hour just looking at it. If you want to go up, you'll need tickets and you'll save an hour (in summer) if you get advance tickets.

Visit museum to learn about the reliefs. Probably better to climb the duomo rather than the tower; better views. Believe me you won't do both!

This is a medium sized square that is crowded most of the time but not so much so that you can't enjoy your surroundings. It's your go to place to see the Basilica, Campanile and assorted statues. A must do is climbing the tower to catch a spectacular view of the city.

Take time to appreciate the bas relief's on the tower. Learn more about them at the Duomo museum. With the Duomo and the Baptistry it makes for a beautiful plaza.

Has several levels, one can rest or consider to climb of the entire bell tower. Book times fro entry to save waiting in long queues.

Looks good from outside but when you climb the steps for vistas there is nothing there to see except the Duomo. Better to climb the Duomo but a lot more stairs there. Get a tour for 45 euros and see the bell tower, duomo, crypt, museum and Baptistry, this with a Gide telling you the history. By itself, skip climbing... More

Ok, the climb to the top of the Campanile isn't for those who have serious health issues, but at 71, I found it quite do-able and very enjoyable. There are 414 steps to the top, but what I didn't know was that there are 4 levels so resting and photo ops are possible on the trek up. The tower is... More

Thank goodness for my camcorder as it allowed me to view this tower right to the top. The view from the top must have been amazing! I didn't go inside but it's impressive enough from the outside. Def need to go back to Florence to do this building and the others in this Piazza justice.

Skip the two hour queue to climb the dome and climb this tower instead, the view is almost identical. It is a lot of steps and can get cramped when people are coming in the other direction but worth it.

It offers a various range of view of the city as well as the Duomo regarding the floor you choose to stop at. Watch out to the time, indeed when the bell rings you will have to cover your hear for a while.

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.
