  • I came to know of this Museum from a newspaper in which there was an article which article promoting the guided tours. Holiday experience! The Guide conducted us skilfully in this journey through telescopes, Globes and astronomy. This guided tour costs €5 and book on the Museum's website, takes about an hour and it ends on the highest point of the tower with a spectacular and unusual. Visit highly recommended!

  • 7/6/16 Made appointment to view this museum and was greeted by a wonderful girl who led me on a one to one tour full of great exhibits complimented by the knowledge of my guide. The tour slowly climbs a tower, which at the end opens up to give probably the best view of Bologna. The Specola is a must visit and I highly recommend you do.
  • A leap forward in time. When researchers at the University of Bologna began to explore our planet and what lies around from sextants to early telescopes and computer systems and analysis. Finally the icing on the cake: the view from the roof of the Tower on the center of Bologna, fantastic! While by almost 100 m of the donkeys do you feel so far away from the city that the gaze is lost in the distance, here you feel in the heart of the historic center and your horizon ranges from St. Luke's to the towers of Kenzo.

  • Very interesting and talented Guide. Telescopes, range finders, maps of the sky in Chinese characters (!), celestial and terrestrial Globes and finally panoramic view of Bologna from the terrace of the tower. Highly recommended!
