The Torre del Mangia in Siena was built between 1338 and 1348 and is located in the Piazza del Campo, Siena's main square. At the time when it was built, it was one of the tallest secular towers in medieval Italy. Literally meaning “Tower of the Eater”, the name refers to its first bell ringer, Giovanni di Balduccio, nicknamed Mangiaguadagni (profit's eater).
To reach the top you have to climb more than 500 steps through a narrow staircase. From the top you can admire Piazza del Campo, the rooftops of Siena and the splendid landscape surrounding Siena.
