A steep climb, with over 250 steps! Kind os claustrophobic to start with, but it gets better as you go up. Great view, as all the towers in Italy! Worth the shot!

Siena is a beautiful town! The streets are quaint. The restaurants are numerous and excellent! The history is great too. One nice way to capture the essence of Siena is with a visit to the Torre del Mangia. The climb of a few hundred steps is very manageable. Not wide though…. They only let a handful up at a time, so not an issue in terms of crowds. That said, if you visit in high season, book in advance. The view from the top of the tower is great. The layout of the streets below is excellent. Not a long activity, so you can weave it in to your day very easily. Certainly a recommend as an add on to your day.

The view is amazing but is the 400 steps up and then 400 steps down worth it. This is a very steep and narrow climb. It gets steeper and narrower the higher you go. Half an hour to get to the top and back. One way traffic so you have to wait for the last person up before you go down. If you are 6 foot mind your head

We climbed the tower and it really is a must if you are in Siena! You buy tickets from the Pubblico Palace, who offer a variety of ticket/museum combinations. It costs €10 just for the tower and you are given a time slot for when you can climb up it. We bought our tickets at 10:15 but were given the 12:15 slot so it gets booked up fairly quickly! The climb is 400 steps and the staircase is fairly narrow and steep but we did it much quicker and easier than we thought we would. Amazing views of Siena and Tuscany from the top! Well worth it.

Best photographed in direct sunlight or full moonlight. Centerpiece of the Piazza del Campo. Loud ringing.

If I had to choose one of the most beautiful cities I’ve been to, Siena would probably take the win. Beautiful city, beautiful landscape, colors, and history. It delights me again and again!

The first few steps can be difficult, but don't be afraid. It is only because of the presence of the clock mechanism that narrows the passage, after the first steps the space widens and you can climb more easily. At the end you will be able to enjoy an enviable panorama!

The tower is almost 300 feet high and has awesome views of the city. It is a beautiful sight to see and one in which all tourists in the city must go and view for themselves.
