Le Due Torri Torre degli Asinell, Bologna

4.6
Witness two iconic landmarks of Bologna dating back to the Middle Ages, Le Due Torri Torre degli Asinell. The 12th-century, leaning towers serve as prominent historical symbols of a city that once boasted more than 100 such structures. Climb the 97 m (318 ft) high Asinelli Tower to see the drastic leaning angle of the Garisenda Tower and to view the city and countryside. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes; the climb to the top is steep and narrow.

  • A must-do attraction when in Bologna. You do have to book a time slot either online or in the main square but for €5 it’s a great way to see this beautiful city. The stairs are very steep and narrow i...  more »
  • Interesting, these two towers, are colums heading to sky. One of them the tallest one, is possible to walk in, but needed booking in advance. Famous attraction in Bologna  more »
  • These towers are one of the must-see sights in Bologna. The Leaning Tower of Pisa has stolen all the glory as the tower that leans and I’m not sure why. I thought that these towers were probably more ...  more »

  • One of the most spectacular landmarks in Bologna. Everyone wants to visit this tower. The tower truly offers the best view of the center of the Old Town. Tickets can be purchased online or in the info office on the square in front of the cathedral. Worth a visit and worth an entrance fee, which is not high. Unfortunately, everyone who has problems with the staircase has to avoid this tower. Do not regret it, there are plenty of other possibilities to get to know the city's hustle and bustle, which is actually on the streets rather than above them. Enjoy.
  • Very nice twin towers. If you are fit, you can climb up to the top. The view is 1 million usd view . You can see the whole city from the top. You need to pay just five euro to the church which will go for a good cause (charity) . They are located in the middle of the city center of bologna . It is easy to find them.
  • Due Torri offers the best view over Bologna! It's worthy to climb over 400 steps for quite some time even if you're afraid of heights!! There is also freedom and quite enough time on the summit to enjoy and appreciate the view. It has to be booked either online or on the tourist info point, though.
  • Excellent views of the city! Be sure to book your ticket through the website before. A very popular landmark.
  • Best top view in town! But remember if you are an university student don’t go up till you are graduated! As the tradition tells.
