You climb the 414 steps to the very top floor which provides stunning views. There are 3 other middle floors with views & where you can rest. However, the stairwell gets noticeably narrower as you go up. It was very busy when we were visiting. There was only enough room for a single file of people going up & a... More

After climbing a never ending staircase ,the views from the top are breathtaking and worth the effort to climb to the top of this beautiful masterpiece by Giotto.

The bell-tower itself is beautiful to look at and is an amazing feat of architecture, especially considering that it was constructed in the 1300's! Do climb the top of the bell-tower, the view of Florence is brilliant. The stairs are a bit steep but you can rest while going up!

you need to be fit to climb to the top, there is no elevator, so it is also on foot climbing the stairs all the way to the top so make sure you can physically do it, very nice view of Florence from the top

There are several spots to stop along the way up, each with a new view of the Duomo and the city. It might take a while but the view is worth it.

You need to plan your visit, book at least 1 day earlier because even outside the high season (end of November) there is plenty of people wishing to climb all that stairs. It takes in slow pace approx. 20 minutes to get at the top but plan enough time to make pictures and enjoy the views at each level. At... More

Totally worth it if you are capable of climbing stairs. The views from top are gorgeous. It's not as high as the Cathedral next door but very close.

If you visit the city you have to visit the campanile, it is fantastic. The views on the top are absolutely spectacular. Just a recommendation, try to book or arrange your visit in advance, otherwise you'll have to spend an hour in the queue.

Campanile di Giotto has spectacular architecture located in the piazza near the Duomo. My wife and I did not climb the 414 steps. We were impressed by viewing the tower from ground level. It is surrounded by some of Florence's most recognizable buildings.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
