Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.
Your BridgeClimb experience starts at the Sydney Harbour Bridge Visitors Centre where you meet your guide, receive a comprehensive safety briefing and put on the provided BridgeSuit, a specially designed coverall worn over your clothing.
When you’re ready, follow your expert Climb Leader through a purpose-built tunnel that leads to the bridge. Securely clipped into a safety wire, start to climb the steady incline up the arches of the bridge, traversing catwalks and ladders all the way to the 440-foot (134-meter) summit. At the top, stop to admire panoramic views of Sydney and its surroundings. To the east you can see the sails of the Sydney Opera House and to the west the majestic Blue Mountains are visible in the distance (on a clear day).
Throughout your tour, you can hear your guide via provided headsets. Listen to informative commentary and fun stories about the history of Sydney and the bridge and receive plenty of encouragement during your climb. Your guide stops at scenic points along the way so that you can take in the sights.
The 3.5-hour BridgeClimb is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness. The 2.5-hour Express Climb proceeds at a faster pace with fewer stops. The 1.5-hour Sampler Climb goes to a halfway point inside the inner arch before returning to the ground. Select a VIVID Climb available during festival dates only.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
A fantastic experience. Stunning views, excellent staff and very knowledgeable guide. All this even from someone who has a fear of heights. A must for travellers to Sydney.
Doing the Bridge Climb is a MUST DO for visitors. Cost is a bit high and it is a not great that you cannot take your own camera or video. You pay extra for pictures they take on the climb... another must do, but added cost not explained prior... not cool! Our guide was excellent though!
Highly recommend it!
Not that scary...over it quickly. And it's very safe.
Talk about a view!
The Sampler Climb was just enough for me. Our guide was very engaging and very knowledgeable. He shared a lot of information and asked questions of us to make sure we understood what he was sharing. We were a small group and that was great.
Excellent day run by a very slick operation. Staff were knowledgable and friendly. Would highly recommend.
Do the climb around 6:30pm in the summer. That way you get the sunlight climbing and the night lights when you are descending. My second time and still love it. My group of 8 were thrilled with the whole experience.Staff is very professional and safety is their top priority.
Visiting Sydney... this was our one "Must-do" and the highlight of our stay!
Staff was great! You check-in and then change into a "jumpsuit". You are not allowed to take anything with you, no phones, cameras or loose items... because you don't want to drop anything onto the traffic below when you are actually on the bridge. We actually had to take our shorts off, but you are protected and covered with the jumpsuit.
Things like a hat, which they provide you have to be attached to your jumpsuit because it gets quite windy up there.
We did the Express Tour which lasts 2.5 hours... the regular climb lasts 3.5 hours. Our guide said you see more of the inner workings of the bridge on The Express and you wind up at the very top just like the regular tour. The Express Tour involves more steeper steps and areas than the regualr tour.., and we stopped from time to time to rest and also to hear some history from our tour guide.
You are provided with a headset and can listen to the tour guide with no problem... even if you are last in line!
You get a few picture (group) and video provided as part of your tour. If you want individual or couples pictures... those are extra. A picture package at an extra cost can be purchased, but if you paying in U.S.... it comes out to like $44+ for the photos. We did it and also got a thumb drive.
If you are fairly active... this is a must-do! Because now when we see the fireworks on New Year's Eve, we can say that we climbed it!
I highly recommend this experience. We did a night climb, and it was so beautiful to see the city lights from the top of the bridge. Our guide was excellent, and the climb was slow and enjoyable.
It was a unique experience. The climb can be narrow at times and steep. The guides make stops for pictures that can be purchased at the end. You are not allowed to bring your phone or a camera on the climb. You need to strip and wear a jumpsuit provided by the company. The view is spectacular.
Wow. That was spectacular. I am afraid of heights but I did the climb without any problems. My only complaint was spending so much time taking pictures. One team picture and individual would reduce the tour by one hour.
