Towers in Lucca
Lucca is famous for the many towers in town. Dino, Robin and I climbed two of them and enjoyed the view of Lucca from high.
Torre Guinigi was the first tower that we climbed. This is a tower with oaks trees on the top level, and took 230 steps to get to the top.:
The second tower was next to the St Martin's Cathedral. One can see the cathedral from above:
Robin and Dino, and me up on top of the tower. Dino used his camera to take a selfie of the three of us:
One finds Roman and early Christian ruins in the basement of the church:
