  • One of the most spectacular landmarks in Bologna. Everyone wants to visit this tower. The tower truly offers the best view of the center of the Old Town. Tickets can be purchased online or in the info office on the square in front of the cathedral. Worth a visit and worth an entrance fee, which is not high. Unfortunately, everyone who has problems with the staircase has to avoid this tower. Do not regret it, there are plenty of other possibilities to get to know the city's hustle and bustle, which is actually on the streets rather than above them. Enjoy.
  • Very nice twin towers. If you are fit, you can climb up to the top. The view is 1 million usd view . You can see the whole city from the top. You need to pay just five euro to the church which will go for a good cause (charity) . They are located in the middle of the city center of bologna . It is easy to find them.
