Brilliant but quite serious going, but I’m 60. A few twenty somethings were struggling but it’s not too bad and you can pause on landings. Trips up go on the hour and you can buy tickets in the tourist office by the cathedral. Or there’s...More

There are many towers in Italy that lean and one of these certainly does. You can get to the top but not for the faint hearted.

€5 each. Quick to do. Worth it for the view. Fills 30-60 minutes. Get at the front of the queue to get up first as it gets crowded after 10 minutes or so.

You can find thous two tall towers in the heart of Bologna. One of them is similar to Pisa tower from the way how it stands, it's really impressive to see such a tall and lean tower. You can climb in one of the left,...More
