“Easy to not go in but do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

With everything else to see, it may be easy to skip going in. Don't. Takre some time to make a visit and see this as part of the total Florence experience.

“Great View from the Tower”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

If you have a chance, climb to the top of the tower - it's a workout, but the views are fantastic. A great spot for pictures.

“So Much History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

We did a tour of the de' Medici secret passages a few years ago, this was great & well organized. We have again recently visited, never get tired of this city, by the Arno.
