I was just there less than a month ago, while visiting my family in Modena. One of my cousins and I went to Bologna for Christmas shopping and we sidetracked to this. I just had to climb this spectacular roughly 1500 year old tower!! The tickets were cheap and the climb arduous at times, but worth every one of the 500 steps. The views from the top are awesome!!! Worth it for sure, but I would hesitate in summer though. I bet too many tourists and it would be very hot. In December there were half as many people and it was chilly, but not too bad.

well, they are just two leaning towers, not much to say really...They are in a slightly traffiky location, so it was hard to take even a good picture of them.

After reaching the top of the 500 steps the view was superb! Worth the effort even after lots of limoncello the night before!
Beware the descent though, it was pretty scary and I definitely suggest good walking shoes.

Go up on a sunny day and see the surroundings! A hike up the spiralling staircase is necessary, but worth it...
