Asinelli Tower

Asinelli Tower is undisputedly the true symbol of Bologna. And this is not all: with its 97 meters elevation, the Tower definitely offers a most majestic, glorious view all over the city, ranging from San Luca Sanctuary, located over the hills Southern of Bologna, to the town itself, churches and palaces looking like a giant red sea of terracotta tiles surrounding the Tower. Although climbing it may be proving tricky and tiresome (498 steps, no elevator) the breathtaking view all over the city is absolutely, totally worth it.
