There's about 8 storeys of tight stairs to climb and the space at the top isn't very big to accommodate hoards of people, but the views are spectacular. I only wish we climbed up about an hour later than we did so we could have...More

A beautiful vantage point to see the rooftops of Lucca. Fair few steps on the way up and can be busy. Take your time and enjoy the elevation of each level. Provides some beautiful photo opportunities from the top!

Very pleasing historical walk. The city is clean and pleasant for a walk in the historic surroundings. There are many sights nearby. Nearby souvenirs and other consumer goods kiosks. A memorable experience in a pleasant historic spot.

On a clear day this presents a magnificent view of Lucca. Lots of steps, but wow. Get a combined ticket with the boanica garden and only pay 1€.

The stairs are quite easy to climb and the views make it worth it, Lucca is a lovely town and well worth a visit.

You can't visit Lucca without doing the Guinigi tower. A bit cramp' at the top, but well worth it. It's an easy climb, not narrow or steep and not too many steps.

Take your time to go the 44 meters upsards for a good overview of Lucca and surrounding. It was pretty easy since it was rather wide stairs.

This offers the best view of Lucca because there are no bars at the top, it is open at the top. There is also beautiful art along the stairways to take your mind off the steps !

Worth struggling up just for the views across Lucca. Stone stairs to begin with but about 5 floors of metal stairs that you can see through. Not for the unfit or faint hearted !

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
