300 steps on rickety stairs through small rooms and then a platform. Not worth the effort. Go to Florence instead.

In this historical torre is also a hotel room. Just one room, but I guess with a great view. On the foot of the tower was more information about the other towers. Good to read about the history of Prendiparte.

Think it can be a great idea to stay in the tower. From below and outside, you can see a couple of pretty windows. There is a terrace at the top for views of the city.

We completely underestimated this walk! We turned up in flipflops and shorts! haha. Probably not the best idea, but we still did it. It's high... it really is and the steps never end! BUT.. well worth the climb. You will need a fairly good level...More

Quite a hike if you are not very fit , over 500 steps the attendant told us but the views over the city are worth it and it is good exercise.

What a beautiful building. The climb up a wooden stairs is definitely worth while. The view across Bologna is outstanding. Such a beautiful place.

Visited here today. City covered in graffiti and very shabby. Nothing at all to see here and this "attraction" is worse than boring. Gutted we have two days here. Nothing to see, NO restaurants have English menu at all and clearly this place isn't welcoming...More
