`Twin towers next to each other in the city center of Bologna. Both slightly leaning (seems to be a common theme in towers in Italy :)) Very cool. You can go up in the bigger one, which we did not do. Pretty to look at

Very interesting to look at, with a very interesting story behind it. Worth getting a enthusiastic guide that can provide all of the color behind the reason for the towers in Bologna.

This area right here was the loveliest part of town. So much activity, lots of hustle and bustle. 2 amazeball towers to stare at, one completely squeue! Try to go up if you can.

A long climb to the top (500 steps!) but well worth it for the beautiful 360 degree view over bologna

A must visit for any tourist, great historical landmark, and the near 500 steps up to the top will help you burn off your food and wine over indulgence! Best 5euro Ive spent!

When you want to go on the top of the Asinelli Tower you have almost 500 steps but the view is the best in whole Bologna!

These towers started together but only one was finished and in this medieval city it’s height is super impressive. Perfectly straight unlike Pisa and built of stone. But almost as appealing to the eye. Yet another Bologna highlight

Not in May when I was there we bought the tickets and went in half hour later. You get the tickets in the Piazza Maggiore information office
