The climb up the Tower requires considerable physical effort: visitors should be aware that the staircase is made up of 272 steps. Admission is therefore not recommended for people suffering from heart conditions, dizziness and claustrophobia. For safety reasons, access to the Tower is not permitted to persons with reduced or impaired mobility.
In the event of rain, it will not be possible to access the terrace of the Specola Tower, but it will be possible to admire the view of the city from the top-floor room, which is surrounded by glass windows.
