In order to visit the highest bell tower you have to buy a “bundled“ museum entry with some minor sacred art - for EUR 9 each. Be careful not to take the extra AR guide which is almost not working at all, even with the...More

Some of the best views of the Tuscany countryside. Worth the climb. The stairs are modern and the display as you climb very interesting. There is a small ladder to climb but nothing scary. But the views. WOW

The entry fee includes the city museums as well as the tower. After visiting the tower when you come down the stairs there are rooms to visit ; the Pinacoteca which contains religious art. More interesting are the moralistic frescoes about love in the Camera...More

The entrance to the tower and palace complex is fascinating in itself but the view from the tower roof the icing on the cake. The display as you wind your way upstairs is clever, interesting, relevant and well executed. Don't miss out the Pinoteca as...More

Definitely worth a climb.Great views of medieval walls and surrounding wineries. We visited in string rain, very few people climbing up, but still good experience. Would have given five stars but for a few questionable steps at the very top, but overall not a hard...More

We bought combined ticket for museum and Torre Grossa. The museum was so lovely and interesting. You should try the art glass.

Great view to to rooftops and towers of San Gimignano from Torre Grossa. A bit expensive, though (9€) if you just come for climb because the ticket is a combo-ticket. For a free tower experience, climb the smaller - but free! - tower at the...More

A lot of the combined ticket items are very art and religion focused with less (no) detail about history and construction, but the tower itself really worth seeing. A lot of stairs, more than 300 to the top, but no problem if you have normal...More
