Its a very popular place to go so I would recommend getting there for opening time. Its very reasonable as it is only 8 euros each to go in but can get very busy up there. But the view are amazing and its lovely to get a birds eye view of the city.

We had limited time in Venice (hours, not days), so we tried to make the most of our time. That included standing in line to go up the Campanile di San Marco for the aerial views of Venice. Venice should be experienced on many levels. The water is what makes is so unique, so seeing Venice by boat/gondola is of... More

There was a relatively small queue after we had visited the Doge's Palace so me and my son decided to go up. It took about 20mins to get to the front. We went up in the lift but as it was so full you struggled to get to the front. The views are great I would just recommend going as... More

I was amazed by the view of Venice from the top of the tower. One can see amazing Venice from 4 sides of the tower. The price is 8 euro per adult.

Long queues to go to the top are unavoidable, but the wait is well worth it. There are no real times to avoid queuing, other than mid-winter and high tides!

Go late, just before the campanile closes and the crowds have gone. Not only won't you have to queue, you may be lucky enough to be at the top to see the sunset. Beautiful views of Venice for only 8 euros, and there's a lift up and down so it's accessible by the elderly and children.

We like to climb a tower in a town, but the campanile at the markus place is not best. First you have to queue up AND then pay 8 EUR. The look ist good, but I would prefer the tower at Isola San Giorgio next time

This is a brilliant attraction. First, there is an elevator to take you up so you don't have to climb hence children and elderly people can also do this easily. the 360-degree views of Venice from here are just outstanding. A must-do. If possible, take the audio guide which will help you identify what you are looking at.

Went early in the evening was a very small queue and got to the top within 5mins. Queue down was a bit longer. Maybe could be a little cheaper but it's venice! Definitely worth it for the pictures! A must-see!
