The two towers of Bologna were at the very center of the city. One of the towers is a bit bending looking a bit like il torre di Pisa.

Well worth the almost 500 steps, more than a half mile steep step climb to lookout over all of Bologna!

You could see this 2 towers from the Main Street, nice pictures from 30-40 meters, ticket office on the different place, tourism office on the Piazza Maggiore I hope, nice pictures during sunshine.

Great legends are circulating about this two towers, Dante was mentioning them (ok, one of them) in his Divina Comedia, they are the reminiscences of what Bologna onse was, and they are still worth looking. So, must see!

Two very high towers which are the symbol of the city. When you look at them you admire them and ask yourself how they built them so many years ago.

No need to pre book and the entrance fee is cheap. The panorama from up there is wonderful and I really recommend it.
