Pistoia has it all except the queues
Oct. 2018
Have been vsiting the towns around Tuscana, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca & Firenze all very good except the numbers of turists. Pistola is a walled town with the churches, bell tower, musuems & restaurants all you want but very few turists. Strongly recommended.

Great view of the city

Nice and not-too-tall climb up the stairs.
Lovely 360 vista. All of Pistoia is quite visible.
Recommended for kids.
Great view of the surrounding hills.

Interesting bell tower with great views
Nov. 2017 • Friends
One buys the tickets in the battisterio, because only guided tours are possible. Once the ascend starts, it is clear why: the stairs are steep, irregular and worn out. At places, the balustrade is low. I recommend the visit only to those who are comfortable with heights and have a certain basic fitness. Wear proper shoes, no sandals or flip-flops.
Having said that, the visit is great fun. Our guide spoke and explained in both, Italian and English. The tower is in good shape, with much original work in place. From the top one has stunning views over Pistoia and over the plane until Florence. Best of all, it is not crowded at all. We were in a group of eight and had a lot of time to enjoy the view. Highly recommended.

Today we visited this place. It's really wonderfull!
Everywhere you look in the center you can see the nice buildings and churches.
It's really a pleasure to walk around.
For dis-abled persons are everywhere the ramps to enter.
This church is a very simple one, but nice to visit.

We had a great day in Pistoia.

The campanile and Duomo were stunning, the fresco, masonry and glass are outstanding.

Definitely worth a visit, try to do Wednesday, it's market day in Pistoia

A very interesting tower
Jun. 2017
I love Tuscany and make sure that I climb up at least one tower in each city I visit for a view from the top. This one does not disappoint. For me the fact that visit to the tower was accompanied by a guide speaking only Italian has its drawback. It's not about missing out on the information about the tower which is readily available in the leaflet handed out with the ticket. For me the drawback was being hurried to keep up so I could not take in or take photos of the views at my own pace. The views from the top were lovely but not dissimilar to other bird's eye views from other cities in the area. But it was worth the climb up the narrow stairs for me. Pistoia (especially the Old Town) is as charming as other more popular destinations in like Lucca or Siena. Howevert the lack of tour groups made it very pleasant to be able to appreciate this Italian capital of culture 2017 at leisure

Well worth the climb

You are taken up the tower by a guide which was great as she pointed out all the points of interest. The steps are quite steep and very narrow but we took our time and stopped on each of the 3 levels.

Duomo's Campanile .....
Jun. 2015 • Couples
The bell tower / campanile of the Duomo is quite large and impressive. Seems to reflect several different construction styles with the highest levels being the most interesting to me. You're able to climb the tower to the top for a view, should this interest you. Enjoy. ...
