Fascinating, but again, like St Marks, jammed with milling crowds - many from those monstrous cruise liners threatening to overwhelm the Grand Canal.

It cost 8e per persons but it's worth it. There is nice views in different time of day. Before midday , sun shining at the water and at the afternoon it's different.

That's what my urban design study abroad program taught me and I do this for every city. Show up by 8:30-8:45 and you will likely be first up the elevator. Cruise ship masses defend San Marco around 9:30 AM (they head straight for the church). You go from tower to the Ducal Palace!

Came with wife on Saturday late afternoon. The times posted on the website is not entirely correct. The site says it closed at 4:30pm, but there are summer hours. Summer hours (April to October I think) reach 9pm so we came at 7 ish with the sun beginning to set in August. However, when we visited the bell tower that... More

I really enjoyed going up to the viewpoint, you get to see Venice from a whole another point of view, sometimes you can forget you are on the water, this way you can see all the canals going through the city. It is pretty cheap too at only 8 Euro, and there is no time limit so you can go... More

I personally don't understand why certain tourists tend to waste their precious time in Venice by standing in queues for the "major" monuments. The campanile of San Marco is wonderful (meaning, the VIEW is wonderful), but if there is a 200-METER (!) queue, why don't you take a vaporetto from San Marco to San Giorgio Maggiore and go to the...

This is a great way to appreciate Venice. Go early to avoid lines- mid-day, high season, expect a 40 min wait. If you enjoy views it is worth the wait.

Long queues to start with but once you get in there is a lift so you don't have to walk all the way to the top which saves lot of time (and energy!). It costs €8 each. Once you're there the view of Venice is breathtaking. Don't forget your camera! There are metal wires across the viewing windows, which makes... More

This is an attraction in St Marks Square. It cost us 8 Euros each to get in and although the queue looks off putting it actually moves pretty fast. You pay and then get straight into a lift that takes you to the top. The views of Venice are breathtaking so don't forget your camera! You can stay up there... More
