Bologna.The Two Towers, built in

The Two Towers, built in the 12th century, are major landmarks in Bologna. (The man at the hotel called them the "Twin Towers," then apologized, laughing nervously.)

One of the towers has a serious leaning problem.

You can climb the other one on rickety stairs.

There used to be hundreds of towers. Every rich family had one. A great place for cocktail parties.
