“Great view of Lucca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Having been in hundreds of towers and high places, it is quite hard to be fascinated about another. But we liked the view being able to see the entire innner city not to speak of the many etrusian roofs.

It was not that hard to get to the top and plenty of apace on the stairs most of the way. It can be pretty crowded upstairs, bht I think it is worth the 4 euros.

“Fun tower”

It doesn't take long to climb, but we really enjoyed the view from the top! It was cool to see the city of Lucca from above. Definitely stop by here if in Lucca!

“Worth the climb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Th first half of the climb is up a staircase and the rest up steps and balconies fixed within the walls. At least one fairly fit 85 year old managed it without particular difficulty. Great views from the top.

It's well worth the climb to see the views of Lucca and the surrounding mountains. Reasonable entrance fee.
