The Guinigi Tower is an absolute must and well worth the climb to the top. The view across the city is to die for and the large oak trees that exist at the top of the tower makes it all the more special! It gets...More

It doesn't cost much but the views are priceless! Well worth the climb to the top. It's a bit squeezy but everyone was behaved and we all shifted to get views of beautiful Lucca from each corner.

Nice old tower with 360 view of the village. Short visit is enough. Suggested to be physically fit as there are stairs to climb

Well worth the climb to be able to get a 360 degree birds eye view of Lucca and it’s surrounds hills and distant mountains...esp on a clear day! Go up at sunset for great pictures !
