You are given a total of 30 minutes to complete the round trip to the top and back. It took me about 35 - 40 but there was only a handful of people there that day. If I recall correctly, there are over 400 steps...More

I dont get some of the negative reviews - there are lots of narrow steps, it's claustrophobic in places etc - it's a medieval tower! I loved it although my pulse rate was such that I had to take couple of breathers on the way...More

The views are breathtaking, both down to the Campo, across to the cathedral, and out over Siena's rooftops to the Tuscany countryside. But 300 steps (and no lift) make this something for the fit and mobile. Don't start up with smaller children unless you are...More

It was one of the tallest towers in medieval Italy. Today, it towers over the gorgeous, major piazza in Siena, the Piazza il Campo, where people congregate and relax. The tower and the Duomo dominates the skyline of Siena today.

Yes, you can bring your camera! I was a little anxious when I heard I had to leave behind my bag. But there are guarded lockers for your bags for free. Having climbed the tower, I have to say I'm glad I didn't have my bag... More
