We were lucky to visit the tower almost on our own, as that gives you freedom to wander around the top of this tree-topped tower. It's not big, and therefore wouldn't be much fin if it was crowded. The views over the city are superb, good photo opportunites abound, and it's fun to pick out other landmarks from this great... More

The tower has incredible views of the city and the mountains beyond. Entry fee is €4, but to climb the Guinigi tower is worthwhile. It is a “must” when you are in Lucca, especially if you would like to take pictures.

very medieval; beautiful comic strip like historical manuscripts as you go up and seven live oaks planted at the top overlooking the walled city with its barrow alleys and beautifully kept houses

Had a day out in Lucca from Livorno as we had done Pisa and Florence before. This was one of my favorite cities in Italy and the tower had incredible views of the the city and the mountains beyond. Reasonable price for climbing to the top.

... Because of all the people on the top! Everybody wantet to take the pictures at every corner of the tower top. And, because of the trees, the passages is very small. And you cannot se much from the top. Only roofs, and montains. Ticket is 4 euro each.

It is well worth the climb to see out over the rooftops of Lucca and to hills beyond. Reward yourself at a cafe later.

Fantastic view from the top of the tower. Entry fee is only €4 and the walk up is not so challenging compared to other towers in Italy. A must visit when in Lucca.

Great views at the top, but a little way up the staircase becomes an open metal one that is terrifying. If you have vertigo you will probably struggle with this.
