There is a lift part way up but we took the stairs to the top! The stairway gets very narrow in the bell tower but the view at the top is spectacular! There is a 365 degree view of the Val D'Orcia...Tuscany at it's best!...More

It is worth to get the small elevator and than the wlak up. Such a beautiful 360 degree panorama from Tuscany and the small village!

Great views and very worth €5 entry. Narrow stairs towards the top but easily managed. The building is also a local office so you walk through a filing room at one point to get to the stairs!

The views from the very top are worth the climb up the stairs. 360 panoramic views of Tuscany and Montepulciano.

An easy elevator up and then two stories up to a wonderful view...was high enough for me even though you can climb another 100 steps up to the tower

The flights of narrow and winding stairs once you get to the top are immediately forgotten because the attention is focused on a breathtaking landscape! Beautiful panoramic view, a pearl.

Amazing views from the tower, definitely climb (or take the lift) to the top! Excellent vino, cute shops and many choices for a meal or just an afternoon apertif.
