One can't say to have really visited Bologna, unless you've climbed your way up the Torri! It can be a bit challenging to get past all the stairs, but the views over the city are breathtaking, a stunning experience!

It's amazing place! Atmosphere isn't like in big cosmopolitan cities. Two big Towers look like skyscrapers from Midle Ages . If you wanna feel yourself knight or princess, you should visit this place and go up!

You must do this trip up the tower.It is quite physically demanding getting to the top so not recommended if you have health problems.The views from the top are amazing.Only costs a couple of euros.

Worth the 54969232 steps to the top!! Slight exaggeration but on a hot July day it sure felt like that! The stairs have seen better days but it all adds to the experience. Worth the few euros to see the views from the top, fantastic on a sunny day.

Bit of a strenuous climb if you're middle aged and unfit like myself. Keep going it's worth the effort. For a couple of euros you get rewarded with a spectacular aerial view of the city. It's not a massive at the top of the tower and I think would be a bit unpleasant if it were very busy. We went... More

In the centre of the city, it's a must see of Bologna. One of the two towers is a little bit sloping and it remind me the Pisa tower.

500 steps on a wooden spiral staircase and the reward is a great view over the city. Not for anyone who suffers from vertigo.

The view that you get from all Bologna's center. The piazza maggiore! A must visit in bologna! The wood stairs are a little tricky is some parts. I read that they are going to close the tower from end of April to the beginning of July 2017 because of this. They will reinforce the stairs !
