It really is worth your time to do both towers! But watch out for the chimes! They are _really_ loud, and I almost dropped my phone over the edge when they rang!

Lovely town and this tower is very pretty. Also a marvel at how they had a hand winding mechanism in the 13th Century.

Plus you can see the internal mechanism of the clock. I happened to be heading down when the bells started ringing! Thank goodness. Not crowded like the Torre Guinigi with the same view except you will see the Torre Guinigi from up high!

The highest tower in the medieval Lucca was acquired by the local government in the 15th century to house the public clock. It is open for visiting and you can admire the mechanism of the clock and enjoy the beautiful views over the city.

We paid for the guinigi tower and got this tower for a few euros more and we actually preferred this tower. The views are amazing and the clock mechanism is fantastic, the bell actually went off whilst we were up There and it’s very loud.

Torre delle Ore offers a stunning panorama of the city from its top, and also some insights into the history of Lucca and the clock. You can also check out the clock mechanism.
