Visiting this tower fascinating at all for me. Weird guy at the entrance told us to get tickets from the tourist office in the square in Bologna. Weird because of his appearance (and something else I prefer not to mention on this platform). When there’s...More

Read this! You have to buy your tickets from the tourist information centre first. Only €5 each and choose a time. Then walk the five minutes to the tower to 'enjoy' the 440 wooden steps to breathe taking views of Bologna.

Who knew about the leaning towers? While there are two that symbolize Bologna there used to be twenty around the city and if you are brave enough to climb to the top you will see the remains of the other towers around this wonderful culturally...More

Unlike other trips up towers this was very well organised, as you can only go up at certain times and have to be back down by the time the next group are ready to climb up. We booked our time slot with the Tourist Information...More
