The Campanile (bell tower) is located next to the Duomo and is also made from the same pink, white and green marble.

It is 82 metres high and work commenced on it back in the mid 1300's.

For around 6 euros you can climb the 414 steps to the top, for fabulous views across the city and the neighboring Duomo.

Best to climb after a quick espresso - you will need the caffeine to help propel you to the top - those stairs are a killer!!
