So glad we went to the top of the bell tower. Excellent views worth it. One of the favorite things we did. Excellent photos

This is a brilliant attraction. First, there is an elevator to take you up so you don't have to climb hence children and elderly people can also do this easily. the 360-degree views of Venice from here are just outstanding. A must-do. If possible, take the audio guide which will help you identify what you are looking at.

Went early in the evening was a very small queue and got to the top within 5mins. Queue down was a bit longer. Maybe could be a little cheaper but it's venice! Definitely worth it for the pictures! A must-see!

The St. Marks bell tower is worth the 8 Euros. The view is fantastic, gives you a bird's eye view of the entire island. You can go up for sunset too.

We saw it, but didn't try to go up it, which you can...nothing in Venice can be taller than the Campanile...interestingly, this is NOT the original Campanile...after an earthquake early in the 20th Century it had to be rebuilt...but if the guide hadn't told me that, I really wouldn't have known it

We read somewhere that the last ticket was sold an hour before closing so we ran to get there by 8pm as it closes at 9pm. Well we didn't need to run because we saw people coming up for,at least another 45 min. The view was fabulous. Not crowded. People very considerate of everyone wanting pictures. We stayed for 45...

We enjoyed great sunset views over venice without any queueing whatsoever. We just strolled in, paid our money, and went to the top! ?8 each was great value for the best views for miles. The gift shop at the top was closed but that didnt matter. A great experience!

Crowded beyond belief - no chance to really enjoy the beauty. I will return off-season to enjoy everything in San Marco!

Go early morning or evening for the best light and uncrowded experience. Totally amazing perspective of Venice with the canals unseen and the whole island exposed. I am scared of heights but didn't find this at all scary. Don't be put off by a line to purchase tickets - it is well run and the line moves fast.

For 8 euros per person, you travel to the top of the very tall bell tower in St. Mark's Square in Venice (in a very nice new elevator). This major landmark also has audio guides for rental (4 euros I believe, but I didn't get one). The views from the top are incomparable, and the breeze is lovely too. There's... More
