This is a must on a trip to Venice. 8 euros each is a reasonable entrance price in comparison with other attractions in Venice. I could have spent longer up there just admiring the view. Timing it at about 6pm means there is much less of a queue to go in.

This is the best place to go to get an entire view of Venice including the neighbouring islands. May take some time to reach to the top as there was a long queue for the lift. We opted for the audio guide last time which is very informative, but i enjoyed the views more than anything. Try and get there... More

It costs 8 euros per person to get to the top of the tower by lift, the views on offer are really good. If this is your first trip to Venice, I would definitely recommend it, providing that the weather is good. At the top, you can see the main island, as well as many of the other surrounding ones....

We deliberately went up just before 12 to get the full effect of the midday peel which was superb. Even on a quite overcast day it was truly stunning and well worth an hour of your time

We arrived close to 9.30am and queued for about 20 minutes. It cost 8 euros each and I would allow at least 30 minutes up there. It is colder than you think up there, even on a sunny day it was incredibly windy and cold! No doubt it is a great view from the top, although the San Giorgio Tower... More

As per all the big tower attractions, it is expensive to ascend, always queues to descend, but with great views over the city to reward you. The day we visited it was a breezy experience - so made for a shorter visit, unfortunately. Rather a qick walk around the top, and take some snaps, before queuing to descend. Warning no... More

We spent almost one hour to see all pieces of Venice from there. It’s amazing to see the boats and ships in Grand Canal. We also saw a MSC ship departure. Be careful with the noise from bells. They ring each hour.

The cost to go up the tower is a bit pricy (8 euro), but at least you get to go up in an elevator, and not have to walk up a bunch of steps. Once at the top, the views are wonderful.

We waited till the last day our Venice trip to take the lift up to the top of the Campanile and I have to say the views are stunning. The €8 each was a bit steep in my opinion, but you will not get a better view of the city than from this vantage point. In spite of the cost... More
