  • The view from the top is well worth the climb, however I felt that the number of people they allow for each slot was a little too high as it was very crowded at the top.  more »
  • Two leaning towers stand alongside, but the can climb is 97.3 m in the tower of the higher Asielli. Both of us are over seventy years old, so I thought it would be hard to physically, but I think there is no problem if you are walking normally. From the top floor, you can see a 360-degree view of Bologna's Old town. It was spectacular. It has a dark brick color, especially the orange color of the Basilica of San Petronio. Also, don't forget to watch the statues standing between the two towers at Saint Petronio, the town of Bologna. You also need to make a reservation at the tourist association to climb the tower.
