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.

Amazing view of the town. It’s a great option out of the many towers since you can see the oak trees on top of Torre Guinigi. We had the tower to ourselves, seems like a quiet area.

The oldest and tallest clocktower in Lucca. if you were right beside it, you might not know unless you looked up. hard to find if you're looking for it or not, but its just right there!
