It is always worth trying to find a tall building, in any city, just to have a view of the city from on high. I would not recommend going up to the top when the bells are about... read more

It is always worth trying to find a tall building, in any city, just to have a view of the city from on high. I would not recommend going up to the top when the bells are about to peel, which is what we did, but really we enjoyed the fact, as it was unexpected, and I love having surprises.... More

This was a good first focal point for us. We managed to follow the travel maps and instructions and got a great view of the main tourist attractions from here. If you are a photographer it is a great viewpoint.

We spent nearly an hour looking at the sunset. If you thought that looking at Florence from the top of the Duomo was amazing wait until you climb up here. Make sure it isn't cloudy. There will be a lot of people and the place isn't big enough so go a bit early to ensure good views.

The price is a little steep for an elevator ride (8 EUR), but the view is worth it :) You can see the whole of Venice and the nearby islands. The ropes for the "Volo del Angelo" can be seen just above - it is a really brave angel flying down at the festival :)

The view from the Campanile is worth seeing but I would recommend going shortly after they open or when they are getting ready to close in order to avoid an extremely long line. We got there around 10am (they opened at 9am) and the wait was about 20 minutes. And for those of you who may be claustrophobic, be warned... More

Advice: is it worth it to climb both the Duomo & the Campanile? Answer yes We climbed both in one day- one in the morning & one in the pm. As we are in our late 50’s & 60’s now, it’s not as easy as when we were younger. We were very tired doing both in one day so if... More

This a must when in Venice. It is definitely worth the €8 and wait to get in. We waited about 30 minutes in line and then made our way up the elevator. It was a beautiful day and spectacular sights.

It is a bit expensive for a simple elevator ride (€8) but for me the view was worth it. You can see the city all around even though when we were there it was super foggy.

Beautiful and distinctive bell tower in St Mark's. Lift service, so no fun or exertion climbing steps. It would be nice to have a guide or information about the tower and more information about the sights you can see when you get to the top. No queue.

Thank thewanderer2016

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.
