  • Climb the Tower ends up being a great cardiovascular workout! In addition to being high, the stairs are quite steep prize is at the end with beautiful views of the city.

  • One of the places able to maximize what can transmit the ancient culture of this city. Despite the chaotic day, the row to be able to access it was not very long and the price is absolutely acceptable. Not to be missed

  • 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.
