I wasn't sure if I could make it to the top but there were stops along the way. Also, you have an assigned time to walk up so it isn't too crowded. There are windows as you walk up and a nice breeze.

It became clear why they make you remove even a small pacsac for the climb. It is a tight squeeze climbing up there, but fully worth the view on a sunny day, what a delight.

You can't help but look up as you approach the Piazza. It is a sudden pause as you discover the Piazza and the tower is there. It is a something you want to see and spend time taking it all in.

The town itself is not big. The main square is where the shops and restaurants are with another outer layer of street with more shops and restaurants. This is not a flat town though, you'll see occasional cars struggling to get up to the square....More

It is a tough climb to the very top of the tower but well worth it for the views of the piazza below yow, the basilica and the surrounding countryside

You can walk in here for free, but definitely worth paying to climb the Tower. The architecture here, as in many places in Siena, was exquisite!

The views from the top of this tower are amazing. They control how many people can go up at any one time, so plenty of space to enjoy the view and take fab pictures. The old town below is so beautiful. Highly recommend this, followed...More

Charming as can be. This piazza is so large. Come sit at the fountain and bring a snack and people watch for a couple of hours. You will see locals come out to spend time with their love ones after a long day.

The Tower dominates the Piazza del Campo when you see the first view, walking through the corridors to the open space. The Cappella is a beautiful little chapel at its base, erected as a means of expressing thanks.
