Asinelli Tower

To me, any visit to Bologna should include going up the Asinelli Tower, with its 98 meters it is the highest of the medieval towers that were lifted above the city. From the highest pint you can enjoy a panoramic view of vertigo above the city where you can see the Saint Luke Basilica and, on clear days, you can see until the ALpes and the Adriatico Sea. The Asinelli Tower (constructed in 1109 and 1119), along with the Garisenda, are located strategically in the entrance of the city, for military reasons. Now you can go up the first (Asinelli), functioning as a viewpoint. Open hours: Everyday from 9.00 to 18:00h (in the summer), and from 9:00 to 17:00h (in the winter).

I arrived in Bologna with a reservation...

I arrived in Bologna with a reservation I'd made at a youth hostel on the outskirts of the city. By the way, I really liked the service there. In the morning, I went to town to settle an outstanding debt of 6 euros I had with the Italian highways authority! The town is fortified, and I noticed that the entrance has a device to control vehicles who want to enter. I couldn't pay my fine as the offices were closed for a local holiday. The city had a great buzz about it: lots of people, a student atmosphere, buses everywhere, scooters and motorbikes ... a well-preserved, medieval old town with the wide Piazza Maggiore and two famous towers.
