  • The Tuscan hills and the city of Siena at the foot of the tower are an incomparable spectacle, it is tiring but worth it.

  • A huge and stunning tower jammed in the heart of the city of Siena, in Piazza del Campo. Lots of stairs to climb.

  • This tower is one of the must visit place in Siena. The stairs to arrive on top are very narrow and they are not simple to climb them. Anyway, once on top, the view is amazing! you are able to see the whole city from above and to recognize the old walls of it!
  • It is definitely better to climb up this tower than to go to the panoramic view in the cathedral complex. The climb is pretty tough but once you get to the top the view is insane, you have a nice view over the piazza del campo and you can see both san domenico and the duomo from there, as well as the rolling hill of the Tuscan landscape.
