This is an excellent tower climb and a good way to get the blood pumping again after standing in the queue. The climb is in several stages, with information and artefacts to look at on every level. The view from the top is excellent, equally...More

The Bell Tower is much more open, with more resting points than the Duomo climb. Great views of the city in all directions. Head over mid afternoon and the line is much shorter than the morning crowds. This is true for the church, the Duomo...More

I make it a point to go up in any tall structure when visiting a place. The bell tower was no exception. After a long climb I was rewarded with beautiful views. A word of warning, the wire ‘fence’ they put around the top won’t...More

I have climbed it, and none will forbid you to take it with you, but i suggest you to climb it without the daypack because you have nearly 1000 stairs to climb. Hope you enjoy Florence. It's a wonderful city.😊
