We had a private 2 hour guided tour which took us to the twin towers that are leaning. Just another amazing site to behold and wonder how it got constructed so many years ago,

It was very interesting to here about the history of the towers and why one is leaning. The towers are in the center of town and can be hard to get a picture without people getting in the way. Still a must see while in...More

The towers are very impressive to view especially as one is leaning which makes you think about how impressive the workmanship was many many years ago. My photos were spoilt by the over head cables

We were really disappointed to find that the tower was closed on our visit, it was one of the reasons we had decided to come to Bologna. They are quite impressive to see but it is not the overall experience we wanted.

Silly really, seems like all the "must see" places are closed during tourist season. Seems like bad planning. Neither tower was open and the giftshop had some silly homemade "not nice'' stuff.

A remaining relic of what would have been one of many towers rising above the city. Unfortunately, the tower was closed for renovation upon my visit and is due to open next month. As other posters have mentioned it is difficult to photograph without capturing...More

It is simply amazing walk in a city and suddenly see two "thin" but very tall towers. They say that between the 12th and 13th Century Bologna was full if such towers. You can feel the middle age era once you see them just in...More

How do you book pre-paid tickets for the Two Towers? I've looked on Bologna's Welcome Website and on Viator, and there were no places to book on either sites.

No need to pre book and the entrance fee is cheap. The panorama from up there is wonderful and I really recommend it.
