A lot of stairs - but the views are worth it. Seeing the campo laid out below is worth the climb. We were given a set time to go up as the stairs are narrow so be sure to get tickets when you arrive in Siena - our time was an hour after we bought the tickets.

Not for the claustrophobic or those of an overly generous figure due to the narrow stairs to the top. The views over the city and surrounding countryside are outstanding.

Best place in town for aperitifs at sunset as you overlook the Piazza Campo. We had the Aperol Spritz which came served with a bowl of potato crisps, some corn chips and taco sauce and then some raw sliced carrots 🥕 with Olive Oil! 👍

I believe you can walk hundreds of steps to get to the top of the tower, but I had to pass because of a bum knee. Supposed to be able to see forever!

For only €10 you can have the privilege of climbing the 400 steps to the top of the bell tower. It is really worth the effort, as the views are incredible. 360 vista of the entire region (on a good day, as ours was). From the top, you also look down on Piazza del Campo. Make sure you're fit enough... More

An amazing experience and well worth the extreme and tiring effort if there are no queues. The stairs are very narrow, so passing is very tricky. The views from the top are quite spectacular.

If you can do the 400 steps it's worth it. Go early because it's narrow and they only let about fifty people in at a time.

You have to do this if you are in Siena! Lovely view of the area. There are 487 steps to the top, so you need to be ok with moderate exertion (there are landings where you can pause and catch your breath) also this is not for anyone with bad knees.
