Not too hard of a climb and the trees on top make it interesting. The views from the top are nice. No need to climb every tower, If you've climbed the towers in san gimignano or even the other tower in Lucca you can skip...More

Pay a few Euro, get some exercise and see a panoramic view of Lucca and the surrounding valley. It's worth the climb. One can see the important towers and churches of Lucca from this vantage point along with the wall that encloses the city. My...More

I have climbed many towers but never one with trees growing at the top. The views to the walls of Lucca made it worthwhile although space at the top is limited and there is need for a one way system. 3 euros was well worth...More
