Lovely!!! Must See.

Must see, only place where you can see the City! Queue is not as big as in the basilica, and is very quick. A bit expensive just for a view... but well, welcome to Venice... read more

Only 8 Euro and you will get the best atmosphere and views of Venice. But it's very windy and cold on top.

Sometimes there is a long queue for the lifts/elevators but if you look for this and go into the Doge's Palace or Basilica Sant Marco then look again when you come out you may be rewarded with little or no queue.

The entry fee was 8 Euros each. You take a lift up to the top - you can't walk. The view from the top is stunning. We went on a clear day and could see for miles. Go early in the day to avoid the crowds.

A 6EUR ticket takes you to the top of the bell tower and it offers a great panoramic view of Venice and surrounding islands. Since this is the only spot on Venice to offer such a view, it's a must for all photographers.

We visited the Campanile on a Sunday morning and were in the queue for about 20 minutes. Once you are up in the tower, you choose your own time to take the elevator back down. The view, as you would expect is quite stunning and it it worth making the visit.

Worth the wait for stunning views. Around 6 Euros each for the lift, the top wasn't too crowded and plenty of space for photographs from the tower.

Never knew it is possible to go to the top) It is not probably necessary and really does not worth time spending comparable to pedestrian walk far from St.Marco but still nice)

Didn't queue for long and although it was a bit of a squeeze in the lift it wasn't too crowded at the top. As we walked out of the lift at 2 o'clock the bells began ringing, very loud (obviously) but worth seeing. Wonderful views and opportunity to see a different perspective of Venice.

Fantastic 360 view of Venice, from there i was abble to see how big the city is. Perhaps is one of the best places in Venice to take photos from the above. It was a nice surprise to me the fact that the tower is equipped with an elevator, Nothing to dislike.

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
