maybe a 3.49/5 A nice easy climb up some wooden stairs to get a nice view of the city. A bit cramped in there though, so sometimes you may have to stand to the side to let others down, or up.

For those afraid of heights this tower is a no - going up requires a bit of physical exercise and can become a bit dizzy towards the top. Worth the view over Bologna though - you can admire the terracotta roofs and see Basilica di San Luca from there. Entrance - 3 Euro

After climbing 498 steps a amazing view from Bologna. Stairs very difficult to climbing in some parts very narrow steps. Climbing is easy the worth part is the descend. And girls not short dresses a warning.

If you're up for a serious climb and a slightly claustrophobic experience, then it's definitely worth it for the amazing view from the top. 360 degree view of the entire city! Don't bother if the weather is cloudy though because you won't get the full experience.

It cost very little money but took quite a lot of effort to get to top. The view was impressive but was worth the tired legs.

Only 3 € to get in to the tower. Great views from the top. But, don't go there if you are afraid of heights or if it is difficult for you to climb. Is always narrow and old wood stairs to the top! For me it was fun, but for some people it wouldn't...

This is probably the best exercise after all the gelato you eat. It is quite a way up but it is definitely worth it. The views are stunning.

But hurry up and go there soon not becouse the towers are in trrouble but becouse you need to see this in person. They are very nice and so is Bologna all in all. Have fun there and enjoy several restaurants and caffees.

If you visit Bologna, are in good health and steady on your feet you really have to climb the tower. €3 admission which is for nothing. The view at the top is fantastic. The steps are a little uneven and you will have to hug the wall to leave people pass you on the way up and down. There are... More
