About The Two Towers, Bologna

If Bologna was to be called the Manhattan of medieval era, Torri degli Asinelli e Garisenda would definitely be the twin towers. Critically located at the entrance of the city, the towers displayed the family’s prestige and served military functions back then.

Built in the 11th century Tower of Asinelli is over 97 metres and the tallest in Bologna. Climb a hefty 498 steps only to find you at the top of the majestic red city a chance worth taking! The top gives an extremely picturesque view of Bologna’s streets, hills and monuments. If you are lucky enough to witness a clear sky you can see the foothills of Alps in the Veneto. Once showcasing Asinelli’s pride the tower now is used for a number of scientific observations.

Tower of Garisenda built in 11th century as well, is a 47 metres. Originally built 60 metres tall but later cut off because of safety reasons- still basks to be the third tallest in Bologna. Dante, who saw the tower before the process had started, compared it to a leaning Anteo in the 31st Canto of his Inferno!

With over 100 of skylines of Bologna only about 20 stands tall and among them are the Towers of the Asinelli and Garisenda, a great climb that rewards you with the 360 degree view from the top do not forget to bring your cameras along.

There is no doubt that The Two Towers of Bologna are the pride of Italy. A nice tourist attraction, The Two Towers are not only easily accessible, but pocket friendly too.

The Two Towers, Bologna Reviews

  • Probably the highlight in Bologna. Well worth the climb. A word of warning: the climb up is a challenge in itself! (See the pictures). If you're not the tiniest sized person, this will prove extremely hard because the stairs are very narrow and you will have to contend with a constant stream of people coming down while you're moving up! You will have to squeeze constantly with people rubbing against your back or front. That said, it is well worth the effort to see the famous orange tiled roofs of Bologna. Beautiful!!

  • Just €2...If you are in Bologna, be sure to take the time to climb up the Due Torri (towers). The climb is 500 steps or so, but really not too difficult if you are in reasonable shape. There are platforms every hundred steps or so. The view from the top is fantastic. Even when the city has a good amount of fog (as it did when I visited), you get amazing views of Piazza Maggiore and the other nearby sites. it is tallest medieval tower I ever seen. Really tall! This is worth the walk up €2 and nearly 500 steps, it's a slow walk up. Once at the top the views amazing, showing of the city at its best. The walk down is easier but you need to watch your step.

  • Really cool to see it there! Like seriously, how cool this place is. I didn't expect the second tower to be curved. This place stands out from the others.

  • Open from Monday to Saturday from 9am to 7pm and on Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Ticket is 5€full price and 3€for students, available in the tourist office in Piazza Maggiore. Specific schedules are in place so they tell you the precise hour you can go in. 97.20m tall tower without lift, you need to take the 498 stairs for a wonderful view over the city of Bologna.

  • This rating is for the Two Towers area in the center of Bologna. A great place to walk around, grab a panino and a cafe, maybe a gelato, look around historic piazzas, or just sit outside in the sun.
