The tower offers a fabulous view of Lucca in all directions. It is definitely worth the climb. I would love to have seen it at sunset.

If you like panoramic views, I definitely recommend spending a few euros and climbing to the top of this tower. There are trees growing on top which was also cool. Fun, rewarding, and a good workout.

We stayed opposite to the tower and learned that you want to be early getting this attraction. There is limited space at the top and people are crowded there. If you have a large party, or with kids under 9, this could be an issue...More

The wealthy folk of Lucca used to be judged on how rich they were by the height of the towers which made up their houses . Not too many remain but this is a good example

Something like 250 steps to the top but well worth the effort. The final metal stairs are quite steep and narrow. Once on top amongst the trees! there is a limited path around all 4 sides. About a dozen people were there but easy enough...More

Paolo Guinigi who built the tower was himself a silk merchant so I imagine the trade was concentrated in the area and there are a few craftsmen still pursuing/demonstrating the trade in the city. Afraid I can't help you with... More
