Bologna’s Two Towers are the city’s most iconic sight, soaring to impossible heights above the terracotta rooftops of the centro storico. Once upon a time, the city was filled with at least 200 such towers each owned by a family trying to outshine the others, but today fewer than 20 remain and these 12th-century monuments are by far the pick of the bunch.

From afar the towers appear almost drunk, with the shorter Torre Garisenda leaning to a degree that makes even Pisa’s Leaning Tower seem straight. Torre Asinelli leans too, but at a mind-boggling height of more than 318 feet above the cobbles (more than twice that of Torre Garisenda), it’s far less noticeable. Luckily for thrill-seekers, this tower is actually open for visits providing staggering views across the region from its terrace. The climb involves negotiating nearly 500 steps, but we promise that the views are worth it!

 

Opening Hours: Open 9am – 7pm from March 28th – September 30th, and from 9am – 6pm from October 1st - October 31st, and from 9am – 5pm from November 1st – March 1st.

Prices: €3 per adult
