AN interesting tower with trees at the top! Not too strenuous to climb the stairs and the entry fee is a very reasonable 4 euro. Once at the top your efforts are well rewarded with the lovely 360 degree views out over Lucca and beyond....More

Fascinating and terrific 360 view. Not very strenuous. Lovely meeting others at the top! Small entrance fee. One of several towers to climb in the area.

The Torre Guinigi is the most important tower of Lucca. It is a typical example of local Romanesque-Gothic architecture that provides a bird eye view of Lucca and its surrounding mountain. It requires a little bit of a climb but it is totally worth it....More

Awesome view over Lucca! Entrance is 4€ per person. The spot on the roof is very small and crowded so that you won’t stay very long up there. But still worth to go and enjoy the view

About 40m high, this tower has a couple of trees for shade, provided by a caring husband for his wife.Great views of the town and well worth the effort of climbing a very narrow stair.

Paolo Guinigi who built the tower was himself a silk merchant so I imagine the trade was concentrated in the area and there are a few craftsmen still pursuing/demonstrating the trade in the city. Afraid I can't help you with... More
