“What a view from the top!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Towers anyplace are worth visiting if you want to have a bird-eye view of a place. In hill towns of Umbria and Toscana ther are even more worth a climb: you will see not just the town, but the surrounding beautiful landscape for miles and miles.

“The bell works!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This tower is unmistakeable (it's got a huge clock on each side). Sometimes there is a huge lineup for the restaurant at the bottom, make sure you're in the right lineup (if there even is one, there usually isn't). Try to time it so you're not up there on the :00 or :30 or else you'll be deafened by the bell like I was.
There is a nice view of Orvieto from the top.

“The view on top was well worth all the panting!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This being a clocktower you'll have to expect a long climb up. But the view is well worth all that panting!

Strangely, the bell didn't chime for the entire 45mins I was up there.

“A must for photos”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The tower seems lik it would be a rip off but the view of the town, the catherdral, and the Umbrian countryside is breathtaking. I had it al to myself and stayed quite a while.

“Incredible views”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Be sure and climb this tower if you're in Orvieto. Fantastic 360 degree views. It was especially cool to see the Duomo from afar. Emphasized the magnificance of the structure.
