Going up the tower provides amazing views of Siena. It gives a great perspective of Il Campo and the rest of the surrounding area. There is a bit of a climb involved and the stairs are very narrow so if you are really claustrophobic or struggle a lot on stairs then you might want to weigh the benefits. We didn't... More

Just to see the level of craftsmanship involved in the building is worth the climb to the top. Our day was completely overcast but it was still worth every bit of the effort to get to the top. My dad who is 88 yrs old, made it too and was so pleased with himself. Totally loved this experience.

Torre di Maggia is well worth the climb. 400 or so steps so not for people with ailments and bad knees. You can take your time so that makes it easier. We went on a morning in the off season when it first opened (10 am) so crowds were less. Spectacular views. Good to book ahead on line.

This building is well worth a visit, you can even pay to go upto the top of the bell tower if you wish. It is situated within a lovely eating & drinking area too.

The view is great. But the stairs are narrow, no room to pass, covered in pigeon droppings, and it is a long climb. A similar view is available in other places.

We went in anticipation of an amazing site and were a bit underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong the building all around the Campo are lovely and the sloped brick flooring is quite a site. I think we were lead to believe it was amazing. When the races are run this must be electrifying. Had my health been up to snuff... More

Not many people were lined up to climb this tower which surprised me. Most seemed content to relax in Piazzo del Campo. But after seeing photos of the Piazzo from above I realized you have to climb to see it the best. There were 400 steps to get to the top. There are many spots on the way up to... More

Climb the rickety steps to the top of the tower for an awesome bird's eye view of Siena and the Tuscany countryside.

I was told that tis was the second highest torre in Europe. The view is excellent (like from aeroplane), but yoy need power to climb the 350 narrow steps. Be carreful, if you have health problems or if you are afraid of heights or suffer of claustrophobia.
