Yo can walk through tiny streets full of shops of all kind, but also good stores.From there you can reach Rialto Bridge through beautiful streets.

This is another beautiful building but with a very unique clock. I love the fact it also shows the phases of the moon.

Stunningly ornate clock tower and clock built in the 15th century displaying the phases of the moon and zodiac. The two figures at the top strike the bell each hour. I hope the story told by our guide was just that and not true. He said that the inventors, after construction, had their eyes gouged out to prevent them from... More

Having done "drafting" work for my career, the details in the local buildings is simply magnificent. This could not be done anywhere in the world today.

Located in St Mark's Square next to the Piazetta dei Leoni, this tower is featured in the James Bond film 'Moonraker'. Just to the right of the tower, you can see the Venini glass shop which is also featured in the film.

Booked tour online per Rick Steves' tour book. Definitely the way to go to avoid the line. Tour was not that exciting, but the view of St. Mark's from the top of the clock tower was awesome. Some of the best pictures we took in Venice.

We have booked the online tour and loved every minute of it. Tip: to pick the tickets you'll need to go at the Correr Museum (at the other side of the square, facing the Basilica) and then your meeting point will be said. Pictures are allowed, without flash tho.

We booked a tour online (easy to find on google) in English. We picked up the tickets at the Musee Correr, in the corner of San Marco, and was met at the door of the Clock Tower. There is a 6 story walk up, mostly on a wrought iron spiral staircase. On that level, you are where the large numbers... More

A highlight of our trip to Venice was visiting the clock tower. In order to visit the interior of a clock tower, one has to book a tour. Tickets can be purchased at the Correr museum. It was amazing to see the inner workings of the clock. Our fabulous guide was so knowledgable and intelligent. She also shared some of... More
