The climb here is easier than the Duomo climb in that there are three distinct levels for you to pause on. However I think the stairways are narrower than the Dome and they seemed more crowded. The same €10 ticket pays for entry to both though. The views from the top are excellent, especially of the famous Dome, the reason... More

Great views from the bell tower. Go early or later in the day as it gets busy. Cost was included in the ticket for walk up Duomo.

The bell tower has 414 steps in a very tight staircase going both ways. It is definately worth the climb. Florence is at your feet. Beautiful view.

This is a very nice attraction. If you are looking for a view of the city then a cimb to the dome is better. This was worth the view though and it strikes a beautiful feature against the church.

Had studied many years of art history so was amazed to see how beautiful it is in real life! Beautiful job restoration, which is amazing since most o the country is so old.

If you want a view over Florence climb the Bell Tower, compared to the Duomo this is much easier and less claustrophobic. There are places you can stop on the way up so you can catch your breath and you get a better angle of Florence than from the Duomo. There is one part of the climb that is rather... More

We stood in line here to buy tickets to the rest of the attractions, so we decided to make the climb, too (since we already waited in the line!). It was a lovely view from the top, and lots of views along the way up, as you can stop at several levels on your way to the top. Not such... More

Fantastic views of Florence! Be ready for some climbing though - may get claustrophobic if crowded..but worth it.

We made the mistake of walking up here on the same day that we did the leaning tower in Pisa, so the legs were already a bit tired. It was however fine to do. There are about 3 areas where you can stop and sit to catch your breath. We went at about 5pm when there were fewer people as... More

Even our 3 year old girl loved it. 414 steps are not that hard. The view and the experience is rewarding.

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.
