Really special tower with trees on the top. It gives a very special feeling to be high above the roofs of Lucca and still under the leafs of olive trees. A must when visiting. Tickets can be bought combined with Torre del Ore and the...More

This tower is awesome - both the story, the climb and the top. If the sky is clear while you are in Lucca - this is a must. You can see forever. The climb of about 250 stairs is fairly easy, they start wide and...More

I loved our trip up the Guinigi Tower, and the view from the top made climbing all those steps worthwhile. It's not often you're surrounded by olive trees when you're almost 50 metres up in the air (15 storeys give or take). So take a...More

Fantastic view of the city for four euro. Interesting walk up the tower with art that's changes periodically-definitely worth a look

The tower is a must visit if in lucca. Although Easter weekend the queue was small and cost was reasonable. However if you are afraid of heights it is a little daunting. About half way up the stone steps turn to metal steps around the...More

From the top of this tower (45m), strangely covered by trees, you can have an overview of the city. Even my elder daughter (3 years) reached the top, it's not so difficult.

44 meters in height with easy stairs. on the top of the tower, incredibly, some trees shade while enjoying the wonderful view of Lucca from above, with the snow-capped peaks of the Tuscan Apennines in the background.

The commanding view from the top is worth the climb! We saw not only the full overview of the city, but the snow append mountains in the distance. Lovely. Also, the climb is really not bad. It's only near the very top that the stairs...More
