We climbed to the top of the Torre del Mangia, the medieval tower in the square. The view from the top is spectacular but the climb up is a bit difficult as the stairway is very narrow and steep with little room to pass. €10 fee to climb to the top

It's a bit of a climb, lots of steps and quite narrow and steep in some places, but if you're up for it the views from up top are unmatched. And think of the people who had to climb it daily! Living in Siena builds your hill climbing muscles for sure. To see this lovely city from on high is... More

You buy timed tickets for the climb up the 600 odd steps. Its not a place for anyone who is claustrophobic, seriously unfit, wide or even very tall. The steps up are often narrow, with low ceilings and few passing places. Its important to buy your ticket on the ground floor as you can get a couple of stories up... More

No Palio di Siena on my visit, and a fair few steps to climb but well worth the visit. Take the extra climb through to the bell tower.

Once it reaches this area, you will see the beautiful tower. I spent more time with locals in the arena to see how it unfolds Il Palio race. It was a "medieval day" with riders and shouts of joy. A rare spectacle met! Near the arena and you'll see a spectacular fountain.

If you do not have much time in Siena, I recommend this climb to see the full cityscape and its picturesque Tuscan landscape. The view at the top is absolutely breathtaking. Unfortunately, the steps to get to this incredible view are the most weathered and poorly maintained that I have so far encountered in my Paris / Italy trip. Though... More

Climb up the stairs and get to the top of the tower for a beautiful panoramic view. The price was 10 euros/person, but the view paid off.

Siena stole our heart, just loved it. We were part of a tour group that got to tour the streets in the early morning on a beautiful sunny morning. We were the first group to go up into the tower so there was no crowd, the views are amazing and give a great perspective on the towns layout. Stairs are... More

Going up the tower provides amazing views of Siena. It gives a great perspective of Il Campo and the rest of the surrounding area. There is a bit of a climb involved and the stairs are very narrow so if you are really claustrophobic or struggle a lot on stairs then you might want to weigh the benefits. We didn't... More

Just to see the level of craftsmanship involved in the building is worth the climb to the top. Our day was completely overcast but it was still worth every bit of the effort to get to the top. My dad who is 88 yrs old, made it too and was so pleased with himself. Totally loved this experience.
