“Wonderful View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

I'm not all that keen on heights, but it was worth facing my demons for the stunning views of this beautiful city!

“Fun tower”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

It doesn't take long to climb, but we really enjoyed the view from the top! It was cool to see the city of Lucca from above. Definitely stop by here if in Lucca!

“Worth the climb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

Th first half of the climb is up a staircase and the rest up steps and balconies fixed within the walls. At least one fairly fit 85 year old managed it without particular difficulty. Great views from the top.

It's well worth the climb to see the views of Lucca and the surrounding mountains. Reasonable entrance fee.

“Worth the climb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

One hundred and ninety steps to the top. The top stairs being quite narrow , so not for excessively large people or those suffering vertigo.
If you make the climb its worth the effort . There are trees on the roof and of course a fine view too.
