but if you have the option go up the belltower of Giorgio maggiore instead, it's cheaper, less busy and you get a view across the water which gives a more complete impression of the city

It costs about 10 euro each to climb to the top of this not so tall tower right on the square. Go across to the canal to the other church campanile and climb up for a better view at much less cost

its well worth it just for the views you get from the bell tower, I hired an audio speaking device, once up the top you have maps of Venice with numbers on them, by entering the numbers into your device it will tell you all about that area.

We paid 8€ per person and were treated to the best views.....and no stairs! Elevator to the top. 360 degree views of Venice the surrounding islands and far off views of mountain ranges. Great investment, wonderful pictures!

From the top of the campanile, you will get amazing views of St. Mark's Square and the whole of Venice. It is worth the wait; if the line is long try again later in the day.

Great 360 views of Venice. It cost 8€ per person for a lift to take you to the top. The views are really spectacular and are only spoilt by the metal railings (health and safety I guess a). There is a small gift shop viewing telescopes and electronics audio guides that all cost money if you fell you need them.... More

As there was quite a queue to visit the Basilica we decided to take the lift up the Campanile with an audio guide. It gave us a great overview of the City and the audio guide provided information on the most significant buildings. Also the bell sounded the hour whilst we up there - that was fun !

Worth the price of admission just to see the entire Venetian landscape. Be sure to bring your camera!

A pain of a wait because of the limited lift access and limited space on the tower platform, BUT well worth it. You see a complete panorama of Venice and most islands. Make sure it's a clear day but enjoy.
