One of the oldest towers in Lucca, the Guinigi tower stands atop some 200 something stairs, overlooking the city, with a 360 view. Simply awesome. The charge is 3 euros. There is no elevator. The stairs are an easy climb, although there is an area...More

Its a climb, and the last few steps are on a single file narrower steel ladder - Don't worry you can hold on each side, and it is safe. Not a lot of room to walk the 360 degrees to View the City, but we...More

There a lots of stairs to climb to the tower, however, the view of the city is amazing. They also have senior rate, not often seen in Italy.

About 200 stairs take you up to the top where you surprisingly find some trees. The way up is not too hard, however, the last part is a little too narrow. The view is amazing and worth the climb.

Again another 'must' if you are in Lucca. Great views from the top but be warned there is very little space up there so timing your visit is important

The steps are not difficult and the view from the top is fantastic. Definitely worth the E4. The trees provided nice shade

When you want your tower to stand out from all the other towers and you plant trees on top of it, it is only fitting people will come and see the view centuries later. The view is lovely and a lovely inclusion in Lucca

230 steps, the last of them narrow, but the reward at the top is great. 4€ per person though you can gat a 2 day ticket for 10€ that grants access to other places too. Definitely worth the walk up, though the access at the...More

The view at the top of the garden tower is worth the climb up the two hundred odd steps. It is not a large area.

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
