“Guinigi Tower”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

For sure it is a hike, but finding the size of the trees at its top and the view of Lucca and its towers and wall is well worth it.

“Not for the unfit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2011

You climb up 230 steps in total on both stone and metal staircases. But view from the top of Lucca and surrounding area worth it on a nice day

“Great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

Lots of stairs so we got our exercise but we loved that part as well. Worth the climb for a great view of Lucca and the area surrounding it. Do it!

“Worth the stairs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2011

On the Guingi Tower you have a good view of the city. And apart from this it is very original with some trees on the top.
