“One hell of a climb!”
Review of Torre Prendiparte

Torre Prendiparte
Ranked #25 of 375 things to do in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 13, 2017

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 of fitness but there are stopping places if you need to catch your breath. The views at the top are well worth it though. Would recommend :)

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 tourists. People are very rude and we have seen the entire city in 2hrs. Don't visit here. Waste of money. Have extra days in Florence or Rome. This was a complete waste of time and money.

I still don't know how I did it... From the outside, it's a beautiful building which the top was lost in the clouds on this rainy day. It's not the physical aspect that was difficult for me as you have lots (but lots) of stairs to climb, it was more the high, the sense of lack of security as the stairs can be pretty slippery and the stairs railing is not super high. People going up and down have to cross each other which causes some traffic jam in the stairs and gives you some time to think about how high you are getting. The view, even on a rainy day, is definitely worth the effort. But I would recommend some renovation of the stairs and especially their railings to provide more security to the visitors.
