Quite a hike if you are not very fit , over 500 steps the attendant told us but the views over the city are worth it and it is good exercise.

An easy and short walk from central Bologna to the Twin Towers. After paying the 3 euro entry tariff pp, 2 adults and 2 children climbed the 550 steps to the top. Quite steep at times and low ceilings made it all the more interesting,...More

We were lucky that the doors were open to public to climb the tower and see the bells. The view of Bologna is great :) :)
