Bologna is a fantastic city in Italy, that not everyone has a chance to visit. I was lucky my friend was studying there so I looked at it as a fantastic opportunity to visit! The major landmark in Bologna is the Due Torri or the Two Towers. The picture is from my descent up the Asinelli Tower, the tallest. The shorter tower, Garisenda, leans too steeply to climb and is closed to the public. To reach the top you must climb 498 steps, which sounds like a lot. However, once you reach the top, you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Bologna and the surrounding area!
