We waited the hour in the queue for the 131 Sep climb of the narrow spiral staircase. It was worth it for the excellent views of the Piazza del Campo, the cathedral and of Siena and countryside.

This proved to be one of the highlights of our short Siena stay, and well worth the relatively short queueing time required. The views out across Siena are quite amazing and as good as those from the various other high vantage points. Highly recommended.

This is worth while. It is the best view you will get in Siena. And not that hard a walk up. Really enjoyed it.

Great views of Siena and the surrounding countryside. Narrow winding staircase to the top but not too gruelling. Good spot for those photos.
