Lovely views from the top of the tower. The trees are beautiful at the top and a great landmark for the city.

Great stop on historic walk of city. Average climb so modest fitness required. One can visualize the multilayered structures with family areas and bedrooms from 500 years ago. Great views of surrounding areas.

You could see all the town from there! There crows few very old oaks on the tower. The entrance fee is quite cheap.

This interesting tower is one of the landmarks of Lucca and you can see the tower with the trees on the roof from the street. You can also climb to the top if you are young and brave. But there is no lift so it...More

Get up the 230 steps to the top of the Torre Guinigi which is known for the trees on the top. It is worse the 4€ and the exercise of climbing the steps to have a perfect panoramic view of Lucca.

Fantastic view of Lucca. In fact the best view you will get of the town and surrounding hills. Just up the stairs (232) and you are there. A must in Lucca

This is my favourite tower in all of Italy - there are trees growing on top! The climb is wonderful and once up there, you have the shade of the trees as you look out on the perfect walled city and the surrounding countryside. Poetic.

For a mere 4 euro, find yourself with a Fab view of Lucca and beyond. There are 230 steps but plenty of places to rest on the way. They get rather narrow and steep at the top but take your time; everyone during our visit...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
