This tower is hidden away just before the square in Lucca. There are a number of steps to get to the top but well worth the effort to see the amazing Lucca from a height. Not much room at the top so do go early...More

In the summer of 1978 I arrived in Lucca to paint for two months with a group of artists from PA. I trudged through the streets of Lucca and was surprised and excited to see that a tower would be my residence. We all lived...More

One of the highlights in Lucca is climbing this Medieval tower. 125 feet high and 230 steps. My wife and I did this without any problem as there really is not too much steepness to the stairs until at the very end. Your prize at...More

I was very excited to climb to the top of this tower to check out the Holm Oak trees on the rooftop. It is quite an easy climb and only gets narrow at the very top when you have to climb the final staircase. The...More

Tickets for both towers can be purchase together which we did. We climbed up about 10am there weren't many people around. Views are tremendous as whilst you are high up you're not too high to lose detail. The trees on top are quirky and certainly...More

Definitely worth the climb of 230 stairs. It’s really beautiful to be on top amongst the shady trees. I loved it. The views are magical

We didn't have much time in Lucca but we really enjoyed our visit especially the view over Lucca from the top of the tower. You'll need to be able to climb over 200 steps and it would be best in a clear day. I don't...More

My family and I went up the 230 step easy climb, and the view was breathtaking, but it is simply too crowded up there, You can't really walk anywhere up there, but besides that, would definitely recommend this for any Lucca-Visitors. Enjoy!

Great example of gothic architecture with oak trees planted atop. I think it stands 45 metres. Great views of the old city. 4 euros to climb the stairs for the view. Worth a look

The walk up the tower is not bad at all! You are able to take your time and bring a water! Make sure you use the restroom before as well, you might spend 30 min- 1 hour up there as the view is spectacular. The...More

Response from alexeicohen | Reviewed this property |
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
