Guinigi is an impressive 40 meters tower that used to be the residence of one of the most powerful families of the 1300. In the Middle Ages towers were a protection and Lucca had a lot of them - around 170 towers but only a few resisted the latest 700 years and certainly Guinigi is one of the most peculiar of them: there is an ancient oak tree on top of it!
Climbing the towerIt takes a little effort to get up there, there are many stairs, but the reward is fantastic! You can see all of Lucca - the old town and the newer one. Bring your camera and take fantastic pictures!
