For me there's always something special about seeing a town from a great height. The Facciatone is inside the Cathedral museum (so €7 entrance fee, or part of the €13 Cathedral-complex cumulative ticket). Go to the top floor and wait for a short while until...More

This tower right next to the cathedral is definitely worth the climb. It's a pretty narrow staircase so you might feel a little claustraphobic. When you reach the top and see the magnificent views spread before you it will take your breath away.

One of the best views you can ever see. The stairs are bit narrow though so watch out if you are clostrophobic

This venue can be visited from the Duomo museum. You should expect a line as the space at the top is limited and only a set number of visitors are allowed to enter and make the climb at a time. We visited relatively early in...More

Not sure many know the story behind this, that is why a guide is so important. Having said this, my best advice for those tempted to take the trek...save your energy. There are many vantage points that allow you terrific views if Siena and the...More
