Fantastic site to visit, but the queue management was terrible. With temperatures reaching 39℃, it was never going to be comfortable. Parts of the route are narrow spiral staircases, with traffic going in both directions, add to this some nationalities seen to think elbowing their way past the slower climbers only made it worse, real shame as the view is...

We visited at 9am so it wasn't too busy yet. I highly recommend going as early as possible as it must be tremendously stuffy once the crowds swoop in. As we left the queue was out of the door and people were standing waiting in the hot sun. The first bit of the walk up is quite hot as there... More

We went early and had bought out tickets in advance. Arriving a little before 9:00 a.m. there was hardly any line for tickets so if you have not purchased, this is a good time and place to do so. There were few people at this time going up the tower so there was no difficulty going up with others coming... More

We were among the first to climb the bell tower on that morning. I would suggest that the early rise is worth it as you go up the same way as you come down. This meant we climb almost all the way to the top without meeting downward traffic. Going down we meet a large gentleman with an equally large... More

The Cupola gets all the action, but the bell tower is no slouch. There are usually MUCH shorter lines here - even at high times. No, the view isn't unimpeded as it is from the top of the Duomo but you get a great view OF the Duomo. Don't skip it.

WE climbed this bell tower after the first one. We are gluttons for punishment. So worth the pain in the quads. At the top you can embrace the wonderful views. The only thing is there is a cage-like fence that goes around the top. No worries, just stick your camera through the holes for fabulous pictures.

Quite the view from the top of the bell tower. We went first thing in the morning and there was no line. The climb us will tire you out but is worth it. There are "landing" areas every few flights of steps so you can rest and catch your breath. The staircase is very narrow and only one way up... More

Worth the climb, IMHO. Great views on the way up & down. The staircase is very tight at some spots, so you will need to be polite and pause on your way up to let people pass by you on the way down - which of course gives you a chance to rest! There are two intermediate floors with lots... More

If you have climbed the spiral stairs in the Leaning Tower of Pisa, you will appreciate the hard work of climbing 414 steps up Giotto's Bell Tower. The first few flights of steps are the hardest because your mind wants you to give it all up and return to earth. But you paid 10 EUR to climb. Better not give... More

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.
