Le Due Torri or the Two Towers of Bologna

Le Due Torri or the Two Towers of Bologna

Did you know that Bologna used to be crowded with around 180 towers during the medieval period? It would have looked liked a modern city like Manhattan or Makati  during its time. Now there are still several towers standing but the most remarkable are the Due Torri in the town’s center. It is composed of Asinelli tower (the taller one) and the Garisenda Tower (smaller, leaning one).

You can go inside the Asinelli Tower and climb its around 500 steps to the top for a mere 3 euro. The view on the top is priceless! It is open all days from 9am to around 5-6pm. Garisenda Tower is not open to the public.
