One buys the tickets in the battisterio, because only guided tours are possible. Once the ascend starts, it is clear why: the stairs are steep, irregular and worn out. At places, the balustrade is low. I recommend the visit only to those who are comfortable...More

We had a great day in Pistoia. The campanile and Duomo were stunning, the fresco, masonry and glass are outstanding. Definitely worth a visit, try to do Wednesday, it's market day in Pistoia

You are taken up the tower by a guide which was great as she pointed out all the points of interest. The steps are quite steep and very narrow but we took our time and stopped on each of the 3 levels.

The bell tower / campanile of the Duomo is quite large and impressive. Seems to reflect several different construction styles with the highest levels being the most interesting to me. You're able to climb the tower to the top for a view, should this interest...More

great view, lots of history. tour conducted by young student with good English language skills. as the town is small and cramped it is a good way of getting your bearings

As in every Duomo complex, the bell tower is part of the baptistery, duomo (church), campanile trio. It is the least interesting of the three buildings. You can walk up and see the view. But your time is better spent exploring Pistoia on foot.
