  • Are the symbol of the city medieval and are represented in all the stands advertising. The more high (Asinelli) has 98 m, is can upload by its narrow staircase to the top. Provided that you have good legs, clear. The view of the city is extraordinary. Another Tower (towers) are left without end by the inclination that was taking in construction, making unviable lift more than 48 m

  • The best view of Bologna EVER! The legend says that you shouldn't climb until you graduate at the university! Otherwise, you will never finish your studies... that's why, we have waited more than 5 years to finally climb the 91m high tower and enjoy the beautiful view! Before in Bologna there were more than 180 towers but today you can enjoy in just a few (7-8 towers in the city)! Don't miss it... unless you are still studying!
  • pay €3 entrance fee and hike up the spiral stairs to reach the amazing view from the top, make sure to stand at the side in the corners to allow others to pass
  • One of the best places to visit in Northern Italy. The city filled with cultures and beauty, Bologna is one of the traditional cities of Italy. I was overwhelmed by the hospitality of the people. One of the historic landmarks of Bologna, the two towers are worth to visit.
  • Nice view. Be prepared because it's a good exercise getting up here!
  • View on top is nice. Quite steep, not for elderly. There a pizza ship directly in front the entrance which offer nice and cheap food. 2 euro per piece.
