Not for the mobility challenged, it's worth the climb to the top. The narrow stone staircase that winds from bottom to top, is a feat of architecture that culminates in beautiful views of the city and rooftops. The best value is taking in the other opportunities on the multi ticket, but don't try to climb the Duomo and tower on the same day.

The ticket included the Baptistry, the Museum, the Museum under the Cathedral, the bell tower and climbing to the top of the dome. Don't do the climbs if you are really out of shape!
