Stunning views

Superb views of Lucca and the rolling Tuscan hills from the top and an easy climb up if you take your time. The tower has an interesting history; worth the visit.

Atmospheric tower, great views of Lucca, small at the top, so always crowded but lined with Oak trees. Recommend.

You have to deal with some steps of course but at the end the views are breath taking. Didnt regret a single step it took, was worth the workout!

Overall: well worth the entrance fee and climb to see the wonderful 360 degree views of the city and it surrounds. Positives: - only €4 per person to get in and up the tower - wonderful views and probably the best in the city - friendly staff Negatives: - it's a steep climb at the very top - quite crowded...

Quite a climb this one - but well worth it. Take it slow & you'll make it no problem. The steps become narrower the higher you climb, but the views are breathtaking and well worth it for 4 euros!

Took my 10 and 8 year old boys up the tower today and they loved it! The climb is fine if you are in ok health - it's really not that bad at all - and the views make it so worth it (as do the trees!!)

We passed the tower so many times and were always intrigued and amazed by the beautiful trees that stood out from the top of the tower. We visited it in early morning and arrived at the top when it was still cool and not too crowded. The views from the top are spectacular and make for very nice pictures with... More

200 or so steps and nothing too challenging - views are worth the climb and great photo opportunities can buy some gifts and art at foot- not an expensive experience
