Worth the climb!

Very narrow for the first few flights of stairs but then opened up to a good climb. Well worth the effort of getting to the top!

The best views from an ancient tower - easy access. If you want to see Siena in its setting this is the spot to do it from.

The tower is a key location within the piazza il campo and is very striking indeed. Great pics tobe had from the fountain gaia opposite.

Yes, it is a Claustrophobic, dizzying and sweaty climb that will challenge your cardio and also leave a sticky residue on your hands (might want to bring some wipes or sanitizer) but when you reach the top and see the views you forget anything negative... absolutely spectacular! Tips 1. We got in line for tickets at 9:45 (office opened at... More

As you walk around and come up to the Torre Del Mangia, my first thought, I must be dreaming, I was taken by the entire scenery. It is a place where you want to spend time. You want to plan lunch and beverages. You need three to four hours. It is fun energy once you sit and take it all... More

The tower is one of the major highlights in the square. For the best pictures go as cross the street, halfway up the stairs. It's always crowded.

This tower is really an amazing one and it dominates the entire piazza in my opinion and it is interesting to see, because the Palio starts from here and even due to the fact that the inside of the tower is wonderful.

Six of us, 3 couples, recently spent three days in Siena and surrounding area. We had a car and driver, day trips to montepulciano, pienza for lunch at latte de Luna, and a village with bath for village square. Also a trip to Assisi, all of it beautiful countryside and still plenty of time to enjoy Siena. We stayed at... More
