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.

Probably it's the most artistic tower of Tuscany. It's easier to arrive the top of the roof than St.Martin's tower. You can watch the panoramic lovely view of Lucca under the trees.

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
