Guinigi Tower, Lucca

You can climb this tower which is 45 metres high, with  232 steps to reach the top. It dates back to the early 14th-century when wealthy families attached bell towers to their palazzos as status symbols. It is one of the few remaining towers within the walls of Lucca.

Notable are the trees growing on top of the tower which can be explained by the fact that the kitchen was usually on the top floor of the tower and there was a vegetable garden on the rooftop, on the next floor.
