    Great views all around, but
    You could save your money and climb the outdoor section of the cathedral. When you go to the cathedral, part of the ticket is for the "Opera museum" (nothing to do with opera – I think it means "work"). This section has an outdoor climb with two viewing platforms. The views are stunning.

    Climb the tower for the best view of Siena
    We had bought the ticket to climb the tower and we were asked to wait for an hour. We didn’t expect the experience to be so great but it indeed was. There are more than 400 steps to climb but it is worth it. The view from the top reminds you of the “King’s Landing” in Game of Thrones web series. We took loads of pictures while climbing the stairs and also once we reached the top. The observatory gives you a 360 degree view of the town. And the Piazza looks great from the top too.

    A wonderful experience
    Fantastic experience! There are a lot of steps (allegedly 400, but we only counted 313) to the top, and probably not for those with claustrophobia or vertigo, but the views over Siena are worth the climb. A really great way to view the city and admire the beauty and uniqueness of the labyrinth.

Beautiful views. We were a bit surprised when they would not let us bring a water bottle to the top. After you hand in your ticket, they will assign you a locker to put all of your belongings in except our phones.

Breathtaking vistas of Siena and the beautiful Campo square, as well as the rolling tuscan hills of the Sienese crete.

A steep climb, with over 250 steps! Kind os claustrophobic to start with, but it gets better as you go up. Great view, as all the towers in Italy! Worth the shot!

Siena is a beautiful town! The streets are quaint. The restaurants are numerous and excellent! The history is great too. One nice way to capture the essence of Siena is with a visit to the Torre del Mangia. The climb of a few hundred steps is very manageable. Not wide though…. They only let a handful up at a time, so not an issue in terms of crowds. That said, if you visit in high season, book in advance. The view from the top of the tower is great. The layout of the streets below is excellent. Not a long activity, so you can weave it in to your day very easily. Certainly a recommend as an add on to your day.

The view is amazing but is the 400 steps up and then 400 steps down worth it. This is a very steep and narrow climb. It gets steeper and narrower the higher you go. Half an hour to get to the top and back. One way traffic so you have to wait for the last person up before you go down. If you are 6 foot mind your head

We climbed the tower and it really is a must if you are in Siena! You buy tickets from the Pubblico Palace, who offer a variety of ticket/museum combinations. It costs €10 just for the tower and you are given a time slot for when you can climb up it. We bought our tickets at 10:15 but were given the 12:15 slot so it gets booked up fairly quickly! The climb is 400 steps and the staircase is fairly narrow and steep but we did it much quicker and easier than we thought we would. Amazing views of Siena and Tuscany from the top! Well worth it.

Best photographed in direct sunlight or full moonlight. Centerpiece of the Piazza del Campo. Loud ringing.
