Bologna towers at night

It was primarily prestigious to have your own tower in medieval Bologna. The higher and bigger the tower was, the richer was its owner. What is it for and what to do with it, didn’t matter at all. In 12-13 centuries, Bologna had 80-100 towers, according to some sources. Now the city has less than 20 towers.

On this photo you can see two most famous towers in Bologna. The higher one is Azinelli (97 m), and the lower one is Garizenda (48 m). As you can see the two towers are inclined. They are supported by special cables strung around them from collapsing.

You can climb the top of the Azinelli – it is the best observation deck overlooking the city. Do not miss the chance to see whole Bologna from the top!

Amazing fact:

Bologna is the culinary capital of Italy.

The View of the Eiffel Tower from the park

To take a photo of a sight which was previously captured by millions before is a big challenge for me. We all have seen the Eiffel Tower: the real one, on the photo, on TV or even in Las Vegas! What is the sense of any next photo of the Eiffel Tower taken from the common position? So for me it was much more important to take a photo of it in an unusual way. Spending some time on walking around the tower I was able to make this shot.

Amazing Fact:

Millions of people climb the Eiffel Tower every year. And it has had over 200 million unique visitors since its opening. By the way, the Eiffel Tower has 2,500,000 rivets in it.
