AN interesting tower with trees at the top! Not too strenuous to climb the stairs and the entry fee is a very reasonable 4 euro. Once at the top your efforts are well rewarded with the lovely 360 degree views out over Lucca and beyond....More

The Torre Guinigi is the most important tower of Lucca. It is a typical example of local Romanesque-Gothic architecture that provides a bird eye view of Lucca and its surrounding mountain. It requires a little bit of a climb but it is totally worth it....More

Worth the climb for the great view. Only €4 per adult and €3 for kids. The tower has a tree at the very top - they say it was planted by the family who built the tower to ensure it was the tallest tower in...More

Awesome view over Lucca! Entrance is 4€ per person. The spot on the roof is very small and crowded so that you won’t stay very long up there. But still worth to go and enjoy the view

About 40m high, this tower has a couple of trees for shade, provided by a caring husband for his wife.Great views of the town and well worth the effort of climbing a very narrow stair.
