The Campanile di San Marco (found just next to St. Mark's Basilica) was definitely one of my best memories of my entire Italian trip. For a reasonable fee of 8 euros per person, you get to take an elevator ride (which though slow, beats taking stairs(of which you'll find alot of in the old structures of Italy)), to the top...

From the top of the Campanile di San Marco you have a great view over Venice. You can see part of the lagune, the Canal Grande, the piazza San Marco, and much more! On the top you can even stand in the shade of the roof, and feel a nice breeze. I would definitely recommend going up for a beautiful... More

We visited the Campanile at about 6.30pm and just started to see the sunset. There is nearly always a queue as we passed it several times a day. The queue is quick moving and there is an old, small lift with a metal door. In a way this adds to the experience of adventure and it is worth the inconvenience... More

The view from the top of the Campanile is incredible, and it gives you a perspective of this amazing city that you can't get elsewhere. This was towards the top of my list of attractions I wanted to see. First of all, expect massive lines- between the tourists staying in Venice and the cruise ship tour groups it can take... More

This has an absolutely terrific view of the city of Venice. The line to go to the top wasn't very long and it includes an elevator to get there. At the top there is a full 360 degree view of the entire city. You also get a great view of Saint Mark's Square and Basilica. Would definitely recommend on a... More

Totally spellbound at the way these people built these buildings, and the decor and ceilings are out of this world, felt very humbled being inside these stunning place. Don't be surprised with those huge bells ringing above you.

If you enjoy big views you may like this place. Is it worth 8 euros? Yes, propably. It's a very crowdy place but people are usually polite so it's not a problem.

The line can move slow, but it's worth the time and money to see the view over Venice. Be careful if the bells ring while you're up there. It is deafening.

Remember: it's always 8€, always in cash, no discounts for kids or the elderly, no free entry for press or students of art, no Venezia Unica recognized. The tower has an elevator, that serves groups of 15 people at once, so it's pretty easy to calculate the time you'd spend in the queue (if there's any). If you see a... More

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.
