Amongst so much beauty in Florence, this tower pales to those in the Duomo, yet, it's handy as a way marker when wandering further afield. A fitting piece in already amazing Piazza (della Signoria)

Only in Italy would they have one company at the ticket office, a different company as in house museum staff and a different company to man the tower. None of them commutate with each other, so they’ll sell you a ticket but not tell you they’re about to close the tower early. No announcements nothing, you only find out when you get to the tower and they turn you away. They’ll say you can come back tomorrow- not if this is your last day. This has been the only disappointing part of what’s otherwise been a fantastic trip to Florence. Remember- do the tower first.

The visit to the tower costs 10 euro and an endless extra slow line to enter. We wasted almost an hour waiting on the line for just a view... Not recommended unless you saw everything else on Florence

You should see in Florence. From the same architect of the palazzo vechio. It's paid but it's worth enough to see the view. If you see from outside it's also beautiful.

Also known as Torre di Palazzo Vecchio at Piazza della Signoria/Loggia near Uffizi Museum, this plain, cubicle structure and clock tower dates to 1299AD. The 312-foot tower symbolized wealth and importance of Florence, the ♥ of the Renaissance. Tower & Museum admission fee is 10€. Anyone with ambulation or health issues should avoid climbing the equivalent of a 25-story building. Since this edifice exists in a seismically active area for seven centuries inspires awe. Younger folks who have been on structures like Burj Khalifa in Dubai, with its 2,717-foot height, but considering that it has astounded world leaders since 193 years before Columbus set sail for the New World may cause observant visitors to view this Tower differently.
