  • Can be difficult of access but is worth it. You get terrific views of the city and surrounding countryside from here. It's well worth spending some time in the Opera Museum as well.  more »
  • To climb it the queue is really long but definitely worth it. The view from the top of the "facciatone" is spooze, you can see the whole beautiful city of Siena
  • A fairly mixed experience - as we joined a queue in a very warm room with no clear explanation of time or reason. There were over 40 people queuing but only a few chairs to rest on. it all seemed a bit disorganised. We waited half and hour before it became clear why the queue took so long to go through - there is only one way up (two sets of steep, narrow spiral staircases) and this also brings you down again. So you have to wait for everyone to finish before the next group can go up. The wait was, however, worth it. The view across the city and of the duomo were excellent and it was a pleasure to stand in the cool breeze gazing out across the rooftops. Well worth the wait and well worth the cost. Recommended, but bear in mind that the steep steps might not be for everyone.
