The Campanile, or tower, is almost 300 feet high, and it makes for almost a perfect complement to Brunelleschi's Duomo. The Campanile is called Campanile of Giotto, but while Giotto drew the plans, he died a year into the project. It was finished for another seventy years after Giotto's death.Recommended for:

Standing adjacent the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistry of St. John, the tower is one of the showpieces of the Florentine Gothic architecture with its design by Giotto.Recommended for:

Hiking to the top is all well and good, but if you have broad shoulders like me you should try to leave your backpack at home. It was unbearably hot while hiking up and down the stairs and with no room to maneuver it was rough.

I'm a big fan of Giotto and it's great to be able to appreciate one of his best works from the inside out. Climb the stairs for panoramic views of Florence.Recommended for:
