Probably the most knowned atraction of Bologne. A tower with 498 steps and more than 300 metros. Great view from the city.

Sort of uneventful but easily reached. You'll be passing by at some point during your stay in Bologna so you may as well look up. Touristic, but grabbed a few photos. Was particularly nice at sunset the way the light played off of the buildings.

A visit to Bologna can't be complete without a visit to the towers of the Asinelli and Garisenda. It's quite a climb, and some physical condition is definitely a must, but the view from the top is marvellous. For a few euros, you get a...More
