The view from the Tower is amazing. For sure it´s a must see place if you are in Lucca. The tree on the rooftop is a special touch. It´s not so easy to get there. But it worths!

The tower dates from the 1300s, when the wealthy families of the town were building bell towers as status symbols. This one is unique in that it has trees on top! Well worth the climb, the views are wonderful.

If climbing towers is your thing then Guinigi Tower is the place for you. At the top there are trees and you can take pictures of the whole of Lucca. We stopped for espresso and let our daughter climb the tower.

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
