It's a few stairs up but you can always stop every now and then but once you are at the top, it is well worth the efforts!

7 holm trees on top of a tower. Who would have thought of that? The Guinigi family apparently. Another triumph for the Lucchesi. The shade is a great reward after 230 or so steps. At 4 euros it is a bargain and the combined ticket including the Clock Tower and botanical gardens is outstanding value. We had the fortune of... More

Great views of the historic walled city. So much better value than the leaning tower "experience" and you can go & stay for as long as you like - great spiral staircase got those keen amateur photographers

Oak trees ( 9 I think) growing on top of a tower now that's unique.Guinigi tower can be seen from far away, it looks rather odd but I would highly recommend spending 4 euros and climbing to the top.The views of Lucca and the surrounding area is splendid, great for taking photos.Marvellous

Like nothing else I've seen, several trees on top of a tower! Lovely place to a stunning view of Lucca, and also feels so relaxing due to the trees. A must see.

Worth the climb. Enjoyed the views and the trees at the top. A good thing to do maybe at the beginning of your visit to Lucca to get a sense of the town layout.

Lucca - a walled city; but not on a hillside which we found to be unique. The town wasn't as commercialised as many of the others so you got a more authentic feel for what a city was like and one that didn't have the tourist $$ coming in to help spiffy it up.

The view from the top of the tower is worth the effort of climbing up the steps. It's quite popular with tourist so it was a bit crowded. Definitely a must see in Lucca.

Relatively easy tower to climb, and great views of the city. Certainly a real photo opp! If you choose to spend time in Lucca, I would recommend that you take in the tower. Also, there are a number of wonderful churches in town worth visiting, and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening we spent listening to snippets from some of Puccini's... More
