Owner description: This tower is easily recognizable: it has a leaning tree growing out of its top.

This is definitely a must-do in Lucca. The panoramic view of the town and surrounding countryside are incredible. Large planter-boxes containing the famous trees, which allegedly were previously used to plant vegetables, provide a glimpse into the resourcefulness of the Lucchesi during the middle ages. It was slightly crowded at the top when were there, so one had to be a little patient in waiting to take photos from all directions, though most visitors understood that others were waiting and the progress around was fairly quick. My brother, who suffers from vertigo, was unable to make it to the top, so he spent quite a bit of time looking at the medieval-style paintings displayed on the interior of the tower and pointed out numerous interesting features as we made our way back down the tower. Fun and easy.

Not expensive, €3 for students and €4 for adults. The climb (easy after the Leaning Tower!) was straightforward and so wonderful at the top. A great way to orientate yourself in Lucca as you have fantastic views from the top. Highly recommended.

This is a unique tower with several trees on top making it possible to take interesting photos and selfies. Great view of city. The climb up was quite safe but still challenging.

Not very expensive to visit and well worth the amazing views. Although has countless steps there are various floors where one can catch their breath in between flights. Nobody hurries you or restricts your length of stay, so you can spend endless time enjoying the birds' eye views.

Decided to take the combined ticket of the 2 towers & the botanical garden (also well worth a visit!) We climbed the steps & thought we were almost there & then started up narrower steps, once we were up there & saw the Holm Oaks & the amazing views over Lucca, well worth the entrance fee
