“Tree-topped tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

This tree-topped tower was definitely worth climbing. It wasn't a difficult climb (no narrow stairways to navigate) and the view from the top was lovely. It's quite unique with the trees that grow at the top. It was a fun stop and only took the kids about 5 minutes to walk up.

“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.

I'm not all that keen on heights, but it was worth facing my demons for the stunning views of this beautiful city!

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 31, 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.
