“Well worth the effort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Quite the climb but the views were amazing and well worth climbing those many steps in the summer heat. I'd do it again.

“Two very old landmarks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is really one and a half towers, and still amazing! One tower is on a lean and was partially demolished for safety reasons.The holes on the outside were for the ancient wooden scaffolding.

“beautiful panorama”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

If you have some time and are willing to climb a few hundred steps the panorama of Bologna is rewarding. Do not recommend for people with limited mobility
