Beautiful Lucca view

One of the two towers that allow a view from above of Lucca and the surroundings of the city. Access is at a charge, climbing stairs are safe and comfortable enough.

Another interesting landmark although it is quite a climb to reach the top which has wonderful views overlooking the city. Well worth the 4 euro charge.

Beautiful view from the top, better than from the clock tower, as you get to see the tower from this vantage point. Ticket guy was good, spoke lots of languages. Discount available for children, students and over 65. Recommended.

Lucca is well worth the visit and climbing this tower can be a highlight at the end of the day. But a 'combined' ticket at the Orto Botanical Giardino. Added bonus is the tower has trees growing in the roof. A good quality T-shirt available too with the tower logo.

Gives a gorgeous 360 degree perspective of Lucca. And with a garden on top! Go up early when they open at 9:30am to be the first, it can get crowded on the stairs later in the day.

Red roof tops as far as the eye can see. The 230 step climb is worth it for this spectacular view. Sunset would be lovely from up here

The 230 steps to the top are well worth the views. The trees up the top are a bit of a mind bend. There are no longer the 12 oaks bit there are trees and they provided welcome shade on a hot morning. We went about 9.30 - 10 am and there were not many people. If you are a... More

The climbing of the tower is ok - it is not very high, and the stairs are not steep. Once on the top, there is not a lot of space, but it is an ok view over Lucca - nothing exceptional though. Price 4€.

We visiting the Guinigi Tower while staying in Lucca. We bought the pass to allow for visiting all of the towers and the botanic gardens (I believe it was 9 Euros per person). If you're going to stay in Lucca for a couple of days, this is probably the best value. The Guinigi tower is a great view. Once on... More
