The most amazing view of the city, that you will struggle to have! It's a long way to the top, with narrow, very inclined, wooden stairs, so be prepared. The end of your journey up will surely reward you.

Great way to see all of Bologna at one time!! It's not for the fainthearted, as there are 500 steps to get to the top. It is worth it if you've got the stamina. A panoramic view of the city and the hills beyond. Truly...More

Great value for money, my partner was insistent on climbing the tower, I on the other hand wasn’t so keen as I’m not very good with heights and enclosed spaces but my god even I would thoroughly recommend it! The stairs are challenging, but there...More

The 900 years old tower had very important military functions (signalling and defence), beside representing with their imposing heights the social prestige of the noble families that owned them. It's a a great experience to climb them and enjoy a very wonderful view of Bologna....More

Apparently in medieval times it was common for families to build towers like this, partly for defence but mostly prestige. Bologna now only has 2 left but nearby San Gimignano has dozens like this.
