“Great Views on a Sunny Day.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Bring a camera. Must leave purses and packs in a secure locker - provided at tower. Narrow passageway to top. Many steps - not for those with joint issues or disabilities. Go as soon as it opens at 10 am. If you go later in day, it's much harder to come down the steps due to all the people coming up. Check and see if evening is less crowded for hiking up and down the tower.

“Worth the climb and the money”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

It's well worth the steps to climb the bell tower. Go all the way up to the very top. It's worth it.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Quite a few steps that get a little narrow and claustrophobic at times, especially when people are going up and down, but the view from the top of all of surrounding Siena is gorgeous! There a few stops along the way towards the top of the tower to stop enjoy a little bit as well.

“Do something for your fitness”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

It is 400 steps from ground, mind your head at some places. You get a marvelous look over the piazza il campo and into the landscape of tuscany.

“A Must for picturesque Views”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Perfect for climbing and picture taking. Just fun. How can anyone skip the tower from where you can see all of Siena?
Narrow steps that may deter some who r Leary of tight spaces.
