  • 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.
