Guinigi Tower

Guinigi Tower

This is the only remaining example of a home of Gothic nobility. This tree-topped tower is part of a palace that belongs to the prestigious merchant family, Guinigi. It is characterized by large rooms, and a second doorway for carriage access. It is located in one of the most characteristic medieval neighborhoods of the city.
