Silly really, seems like all the "must see" places are closed during tourist season. Seems like bad planning. Neither tower was open and the giftshop had some silly homemade "not nice'' stuff.

The labour and design put into these structures is amazing considering they were constructed in medieval times. Apparently then, there were up to 80-100 towers within the walls of Bologna. Absolutely amazing and a must see.

How do you book pre-paid tickets for the Two Towers? I've looked on Bologna's Welcome Website and on Viator, and there were no places to book on either sites.

No need to pre book and the entrance fee is cheap. The panorama from up there is wonderful and I really recommend it.
