The Asinelli tower is one of the few towers built in Bologna at the end of the 12th century that still survives today. The Garisenda tower is next to it (leaning tower) but it is closed to the public. The ticket to visit the Asinelli...More

The cost is 5€ and you purchase your ticket over at the TI office in Piazza Magiore, a short walk away (although some people had online vouchers, too). It is a tight climb up, so claustrophobic people should avoid. The views at the top are...More

Sort of uneventful but easily reached. You'll be passing by at some point during your stay in Bologna so you may as well look up. Touristic, but grabbed a few photos. Was particularly nice at sunset the way the light played off of the buildings.

Why have only one leaning tower when you can have two? The centre of Bologna is also very interesting and the food is divine.

The two ancient towers which are in the city centre were so attractive, showing how the history of the city is conserved. They are almost 1000 year constructions. So I definitely recommend to read about their history and take a nice picture from the beginning...More

Interesting to see the leaning towers in a very dense part of the downtown area. The density makes viewing the towers a bit of a challenge, but not terribly difficult. The is an interesting story here. Two families that built failed towers, however the failure...More
