The tower is a great way to see an overview of the city of Lucca. The climb to the top takes more than a little effort but the views you will have are excellent with photo opportunities galore. Definitely a recommended activity.

Good for a trip up to orientate yourself with Lucia and see how the city is laid out. Nice easy climb even on hot days.

Quite a few stairs and if you are not so keen on heights the last few are probably the hardest (industrial metal stairs that you can see through).. The space at the top of the tower is limited, but it does give a wonderful 360...More

A wonderful way to view Lucca from on high and with the added treat of the oak trees growing at the top! An easy, steady climb of 250 or so steps (and my fitness leaves something to be desired). Take it slowly and your time...More

This beautiful old tower is also located in the area of piazza anfiteatro. So much architecture! Take your time viewing the remarkable details on every marvelous structure you see!

We enjoyed the great views from the top. The stairs were fairly shallow and easy to climb. Even our 4 year old made it up in his own. Reasonably priced. Highly recommended

It costs approximate 4€ per person to go up the tower. There is no lift - you must walk. The walk is steep but easily do-able. The views are well worth that slightly raised heart beat and slight pant. You can see for miles and...More

There may be a few towers you can climb in Lucca however this is the only tower I have ever seen with trees (Holm oaks) growing on the top. It's well worth the clim for the views and the oaks.
