Downtown Bologna is a must see, and of course you wont miss the twin towers as they are a few blocks away from the Pizza's and downtown area. really cool to see the towers. The local phrase is Torri-Tette and Tortellini. All famous in Bologna.

These two medieval towers are the symbol of Bologna. You can climb up to the top, ticket is very cheap.

Over the years I have become quite afraid of heights. I have never imagined that I would cry upon arriving safe and sound on the ground again, but I did. It was a happiness cry because almost the entire time I thought that the very narrow and quite slippery wooden staircase would somehow break or I would slip and die.... More

It's hard to believe that these two towers are more or less the remains of the hundreds that once crowded the city's skyline. Another monument to human endeavor -- or folly - take your pick.

It is a must do experience in my opinion while in Bologna to climb the old stairs (498 in total I think!) to the top of the Asinelli tower. The views at the top are amazing, from every side of the tower. Up here you can see everything and really see the layout of this great city. I met a... More

Doing a city trip and doing a little work-out in one. Fun to do and the view is worth the exercise. I thought it costs €4,- entrance per person.

The tower entrance seems disorganised as we climbed the first steps very slowly with other people trying to pass us descending before being told there was a 40 minute wait if we wished to continue up as they were now suddenly full. Shane someone wasn't posted at the entrance to point this out.
