Whilst the climb may be strenuous for some, it is certainly most worthwhile as it gives you a fantastic view in three directions (the cathedral takes up the entire view in the other).

Generally not at very long line - with terrific views of city and duomo. If pressed for time this really gives you the most value.

Prepare yourself for a monsterous climb, 100 stairs at a time, 3 levels before you reach the top of the tower.. It can be done with reasonable fitness

Well worth the climb - the views are magnificent. You really get a good idea of the immensity of the cathedral dome and particularly the lantern. However, they only let a few people in at a time as the steps are narrow, so it’s difficult...More

I have climbed it, and none will forbid you to take it with you, but i suggest you to climb it without the daypack because you have nearly 1000 stairs to climb. Hope you enjoy Florence. It's a wonderful city.😊
