With 500 + steps up, you will be able to trim off a pizza or two in energy. If you're interested in where you're staying, this is a must see place. The Torre has timed entry, at half hour slots. When we were there, the wait was about 2 hours (when you can go and grab a meal, or look... More

This is quite an amazing tower, whether watched from afar or from close up, and a Siena icon. It's over 290 feet tall, and quite remarkable to recall that it was built in 1325 or so. We did not climb the tower as it was over 35°C the day we visited, but everyone I know who has climbed up is... More

It's just there. A historical sight. Not sure if you can go up in it but it's tall and cool to look at.

Such a breathtaking view from the top, totally worth it. A must-see attraction for residents and tourists alike. It's a cool climb but I wouldn't recommend it for people with claustrophobia.

We read inches reviews that there are 500 steps, and the climb starts with very claustrophobic stairs. But in practice the stairs are not so dark and small, and my kids (6 and 10) counted 382 stairs only ; :-) We enjoyed a lot, the views are stunning! Very recommended. We came at 17, there were no queue at all.

We got to Siena early as it was Palio and so we managed to be amongst the first to climb the tower. It was well worth the early start - no queues for tickets and straight up with no wait to get up and down (staircase is tiny!). And once we were up the view was stunning with the long... More

It is very good place to visit and you can have some relax time hanging around. Is very much famous square as twice a year the traditional horse race took place here.

It is a quite nice view from up there but I found the price to be too high to enjoy it. Nevertheless once up you will see the most beautiful views of the square.

This is a must for the incredible views across across Siena. The downside is there are over 500 steps to climb but as long as you are fit enough, it is well worth it. We took some stunning photographs of the duomo and the beautiful green surroundings across the Siena landscape. It is possible to stop at slightly lower levels... More
