Tickets are combined and allow you to see the clock tower as well , I don't recall how much it was but it wasn't particularly pricey. The climb is a little tight but very easy to do for all.
Towers were thing to build if you were who's who in Lucca back in the day, and this was part of the residence of the Guinigi family who has since kindly donated it to the city of Lucca. The tower was built in 1300s so predates the rennaisance city walls.
With little in the way of other developments in the area, the views, I imagine, are still largely the same as they were in the 1300s. This must be one of the few places that can boast that. You still get an unobstructed view of the valley right up to the mountains surrounding it,
It is wonderful to sit among the oak trees and watch the sunset. Space is a little tight but enough to move around.
