Originally built as a lighthouse to assist navigation in the lagoon, visitors can be whisked by elevator to the top of St. Mark's Campanile or bell tower to savor incredible views of Venice, the lagoon and the Alps in the distance.

The views are wonderful! I loved seeing the roof tiles of all the buildings surrounding the Campanile. The views of the islands, the domes of the churches, Piazza San Marco - great!!! And if you happen to be up there when the bells ring at the top of the hour (as I was - unexpectedly), they're loud, but not as... More

The 8 euros per person is so well spent for coming up the campanile. Watch out though - dont bring your handbag or any bag - you will be told to go away and put it in a bag dispensary the other side of St Mark's square before entering. The views are breathtaking - go on a clear day and... More

Great views from all sides on the top, even on a dull day. Try to go up on the hour - much more fun when the bells are ringing!

There are three major sights in San Marco square and the queues to the Basilica and Doge's Palace can be daunting. However, the queue to the Campanile is reasonable, during the week you'll probably only have to wait about 15-20 minutes. Entrance fee is 8€ and the views are more than worth the money. There is not much space at... More

Another tower to climb that while doing it you will wonder if its worth it until you reach the top and the view says it all.

San Marco is definitely a must see for anyone traveling to Venice. Stand in the plaza, take your photos and feed the birds. But to truly experience this area you must wander and get lost. Head out of the square on the opposite side of the Cathedral and explore the small narrow side streets around the square. This is where... More

Offering the best views of Venice and you can take a lift to the top! (Is this the only bell tower in Italy with an elevator?) What more could you ask? Breathtaking.

Visited in mid November so no queues! Walked straight in, paid our 8 Euros and got whizzed effortlessly to the top in the lift. Walked out and the view, quite literally, took my breath away. It was an overcast day and still stunning. I could have stood there all day looking out. Highlight of my trip. DON'T miss doing this.

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.
