Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Tuscany / Province of Florence / Florence / Campanile di Giotto
Climb more than 400 steps to the top of Campanile di Giotto to enjoy views of Florence. At a height of almost 90 m (280 ft), the 14th-century tower features seven antique bells and is considered a masterpiece of Florentine Gothic architecture. Admire the ornate detail of the tower's exterior styling, which includes several reliefs, statues, and carved panels. Wear good walking shoes for the hike to the top, because the stairs are narrow and steep. Your admission ticket also provides entry to the adjoining cathedral, baptistery, and museum.

This experience was AMAZING. Your ticket comes packaged with other experiences around the cathedral. This is probably one of the lesser known parts of your ticket package, though. The climb is somewhat intense, but there are plenty of stopping points along the way to enjoy the view. Once you get to the top, the view is absolutely breathtaking. You get a 360 degree view of the entire city. My family and I were excited to be able to point out all of the places we had gone as well as see the surrounding hills and landscape. The pictures you will take up at the top are ones that you will find on post cards. Beautiful landscapes surrounding one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This is definitely an experience that should be fit into your trip. Protip: We found that there were always lines to climb the tower during the day but in the evening it was pretty empty. They stop allowing climbers to start at 7pm (as of this review. And the tower actually closes at 745 so there is plenty of time) so we started at 630 and there were only a few people around. Also note that this isn't one of the attractions that force you to go in by time slot. This is a free climb, you go in and climb and come down at your own pace/time.
Make sure to buy your tickets (in advance online or right when you want to go up) then get your climbing shoes on! This climb up can get pretty narrow and there is traffic going both ways (not controlled entry times like the Duomo). There are a few levels on your way up to take a rest and catch the views from that level, so that helps break up the stairs a little. It was fun to look across to the people on top of the Duomo as well. The views are pretty incredible at the top, and you take your time!
