“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Florence must be viewed from above - the Bell Tower is a great way to do this. There are plenty of stop off floors on the way up to catch your breath

“Best aerial view of Florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

Strenuous and claustrophobic climb up this beautiful bell tower rewards you with a 360 degree view of Florence that is unmatched

“Next Best thing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

We opted to climb Giottos Bell Tower instead of the Duomo. it was far less crowded than the Duomo and gave a view that included the Duomo which was neat. It is quite a hike up the 400 plus stairs, but totally worth it. Bring a bottle of water :)

“I huffed and I puffed and I finally made it up..!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

Definitely got a good quad workout the day my husband, 11-year old son and I climbed the campanile. But the view! Especially from the landing half way up - we climbed on a sunny day with a bright blue sky and the Duomo just glowed in the sunlight...I felt as though I could reach out and touch it. Really thrilling. Take your time and you should be fine if you're reasonable fit. I like this climb better that the Dome because the staircase isn't as claustrophobic. My son loved the commemorative coin you can buy from a machine in the lobby - a nice souvenir for a big accomplishment!
