  • I think this is the most interesting church to visit in Lucca. Now it works only as a museum and is not a church, but you can climb the tower from where there is a wonderful view of the whole city...

  • Part of San Martino package Spend some time to go through the Roman foundations underground No need to go up the tower (and the effort) if you already went up the Cathedral tower

  • You can visit the Church of Santi Giovanni e Reparata Church + Archaeological area + Baptistery + bell tower of San Giovanni by buying a combined tickets of €10 or €20 for a family or €4 for just the Church of Santi Giovanni e Reparata Church + Archaeological area + Baptistery + bell tower of San Giovanni. The combined ticket includes Cathedral + Cathedral Bell Tower + Museum + Church of Santi Giovanni e Reparata Church + Archaeological area + Baptistery + bell tower of San Giovanni. It is cheaper to purchase the combined ticket. The Church of Santi Giovanni e Reparata Church + Archaeological area + Baptistery + bell tower of San Giovanni is open every day from 10.00-18.00. The church is beautiful. There are a number of beautiful pictures on the wall that look like they were painted yesterday. There is a frescoe on the wall that is very clear and detailed. In the foundations of the church is the archaeological area. In this area there are a number of mosaics and ruins of the old cathedral. One part dates back to 2nd century BC. There is a metal walkway that allows you to walk amongst the ruins. Inside the church you can access the bell tower. The bell tower provides views across the city. The only problem when you reach the top you have to look through a wiring fencing. This wiring is very close together not allowing you to get a clear view of the city and it becomes difficult to get a picture without the wire fencing in it.
  • Inside the church visitors can appreciate many interesting and beautiful paintings and frescoes. You can visit the archaeological excavations and enjoy a fabulous view by climbing to the top of the tower.
