This famous tower features a roof top garden and is one of the important sights to see in Lucca. Now owned by the city it was given by the Guinigi family. An unusual occurrence as most Towers were originally church built. Very impressive

Stunning scenery from the top of this unique tree topped tower. €4 entry fee, half concrete staircase then half iron work, my wife is normally scared of this type of staircase but found it not too bad. Worth the views from the top..

We really enjoyed our visit to the tower. Decently priced. Stairs are wide but get narrower as you go up. Beautiful views from the top and unusual to see trees planted up a tower. It was fine going up and down the steps, people waited...More

The steps start off wide and brick faced, then to metal mesh. 230 steps later you step out on to a tree shaded roof with impressive views across all of the city and to the mountains beyond.

Definitely worth the climb to the top to see the amazing sites of Lucca. It only cost €4 and I would definitely recommend it.

Climb up the tower (not as difficult as you might think) and be amazed by the trees on top of it and the beautiful view of Lucca. It is a bit crammed up top but worth the climb.

We really enjoyed this . We got to the top where there were probably thirty people looking out . The views are amazing in all directions and you can see all the towers and the distant hills. Don’t forget your camera!

A challenge for anyone at 33 degrees Centigrade and 90% humidity, but if you are acrophobic, I would keep your feet firmly on the ground The climb starts in normal stone steps and feels comfortable if you take it steady. Half way up you realise...More

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
