Answers to this question:
isengard and mordor
I'll give a pedantic "nope", although I'd accept the names of the towers in those two places as those are the "two towers" emphasised in the films :)
Tolkien himself wasn't clear which "two towers" the title referred to.... in an illustration he depicted Minas Morgul and the tower in Isengard as the two towers, but he also wrote that the two towers were the tower in Isengard and Cirith Ungol.
There's 5 towers in the story, so I suppose pair of those could be correct... but Tolkien seems sure the tower in Isengard is one of the two :)
Are you telling me I need to read the books?! lol
The Tower of Isengard and the one with the big eye in mordor.

The closest answer to this question that you can get is Minas Morgul and Orthanc OR Orthanc and Cirith Ungol. The first pair was what Tolkien named as the two towers at the end of the Fellowship of the Ring in a note as well as pictured in an illustration, but the latter pair was named as the two towers in to one of the publishers of his books at the time.
But then again, Tolkien also left it quite ambiguous. So in a sense, it could be any pair of the five.
Yep, you have it right! Welcome to Q&A :)
