Although the crowds were intense in Piazza San Marco, we did not have to wait very long to take the elevator to the top. At the top we had plenty of space and great views in all directions. And while it was very hot in the Piazza it was cool at the top of the Campanile. I would highly recommend... More

We were surprised to find how short the queue was and how quickly it went down. You go to the top in a super fast lift and the views over Venice are breath-taking. A must do!

We had to wait in a bit of a line, but figured we had some time to waste in between our next meal. If you have exact change, the person at the ticket counter seems to prefer that. There is an elevator to the top and people really pack in until the elevator operator stops them. The views are really... More

Stunnig views up here. If youre going to wait in line for anything in Venice, go up to the top of the Campanile in San Marco. There's an elevator that takes you to the top.

We were in the campanile in early July, we only queued half an hour to get in the lift, we got wondeful view over Venice, certainly worth doing. The only (slight) downside : upstairs it was crowded and we had to wait longer to get down than to go up, but there was a slight fresh breeze giving the right... More

All great cities in the world have a high point from where you can see everything around. But Venice it's different. A little bit romantic, a little bit of history, the sea and the city, and tis special golden light of the sun which makes the "laguna" more special. To go up to the top of "Campanile" it's a must...

Stunning views over the lagoon - well worth a visit at 8 euros. Late afternoon the square is relatively quiet but queues to go back down are a good 10 minutes.

At 8 euros per person, it's not cheap but the views from above are very worth it. Visit at sunrise or sunset to get the best experience but any time of day is OK. You get to see Venice from another angle and it's breathtaking. A must if you are in Venice.

While I did not climb the steps to get to the top of the famous bell tower right next to St. Mark's Basilica, the rich sound of the bells can be heard all over the city. The original tower actually collapsed in the middle of the night centuries ago, killing an unfortunate cat. It was rebuilt brick by brick exactly... More

This is one of those unique places in the World that really should not be missed. There is no match, nothing like it! The "you had to be there" kind of place. Yes see San Marco but wander beyond the Grandeur of this Master Piece and be prepared for a one of a kind wonderland. February has the least crowds... 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.
