The tower offers a fabulous view of Lucca in all directions. It is definitely worth the climb. I would love to have seen it at sunset.

If you like panoramic views, I definitely recommend spending a few euros and climbing to the top of this tower. There are trees growing on top which was also cool. Fun, rewarding, and a good workout.

But you have to be able to walk up it. There are a couple landings where you can rest on the way up if necessary. It's worth the effort. There are trees at the top!
