“You can climb it for the best views of the cathedral you'll ever get and an unparalleled up close view of the magnificent Brunelleschi Dome, the iconic symbol of renaossence Florence.”
“The view from the top is spectacular; one can see the Duomo at very close range and the beautiful city of Florence from the vantage of the very center of the city as the Campanile is located in the Piazza Duomo.”
“It is a solid marble work, dated as old as Donatello's art (he was the Medici's court artisan and his tomb is also in this basilica), and you can see the Medici family's burial site under the basilica.”
“Worth the ticket cost to view the small gallery and the basilica, mostly because you get a free guided tour (audio plus video) on an iPad as you walk through!”
