    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.

    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.

    314 steps to the top and well worth the climb - just be sure to bring some water and take a break when you reach the landings!

    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.

    A wonderful sight, but it's really an exhausting climbing of the stairs. The stairs are really small and in the summer, take absolutely a bottle of water with you! Only as a good tip...:)

    Climb to the top to get one of the best views of the entire city. There's not much that's taller than this.

    Come here, do the climb. At 274' tall, this gives you the classic view over Florence and the rooftops. Beautiful.

Description

Campanile di Giotto, which translates to Giotto's Bell Tower, is a free-standing bell tower which is situated among a group of buildings which include Florence Cathedral on the Piazza del Duomo, located in Florence, Italy. The tower is one of the showpieces of the Gothic architecture found in many Florentine buildings. The campanile contains seven bells and several works of art. All the current works of art in the campanile are reproductions, as the originals were removed between 1965 and 1967 and are now displayed in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, which is located behind the cathedral.
