Once it reaches this area, you will see the beautiful tower. I spent more time with locals in the arena to see how it unfolds Il Palio race. It was a "medieval day" with riders and shouts of joy. A rare spectacle met! Near the arena and you'll see a spectacular fountain.

If you do not have much time in Siena, I recommend this climb to see the full cityscape and its picturesque Tuscan landscape. The view at the top is absolutely breathtaking. Unfortunately, the steps to get to this incredible view are the most weathered and poorly maintained that I have so far encountered in my Paris / Italy trip. Though... More

Climb up the stairs and get to the top of the tower for a beautiful panoramic view. The price was 10 euros/person, but the view paid off.

Siena stole our heart, just loved it. We were part of a tour group that got to tour the streets in the early morning on a beautiful sunny morning. We were the first group to go up into the tower so there was no crowd, the views are amazing and give a great perspective on the towns layout. Stairs are... More

Going up the tower provides amazing views of Siena. It gives a great perspective of Il Campo and the rest of the surrounding area. There is a bit of a climb involved and the stairs are very narrow so if you are really claustrophobic or struggle a lot on stairs then you might want to weigh the benefits. We didn't... More

Just to see the level of craftsmanship involved in the building is worth the climb to the top. Our day was completely overcast but it was still worth every bit of the effort to get to the top. My dad who is 88 yrs old, made it too and was so pleased with himself. Totally loved this experience.

Torre di Maggia is well worth the climb. 400 or so steps so not for people with ailments and bad knees. You can take your time so that makes it easier. We went on a morning in the off season when it first opened (10 am) so crowds were less. Spectacular views. Good to book ahead on line.

This building is well worth a visit, you can even pay to go upto the top of the bell tower if you wish. It is situated within a lovely eating & drinking area too.

The view is great. But the stairs are narrow, no room to pass, covered in pigeon droppings, and it is a long climb. A similar view is available in other places.
