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

amazing view but rather crowded so that you do not have much space or time to admire it and rather expensive for what you actually get.

It had been foggy in the morning, maybe the reason for no queue in the afternoon, however we were whisked to the top by lift and the views over the city and beyond breathtaking. Well worth the visit.

Easy access via lift for stunning panoramas of the city and views across to the islands and coast. As well as vibrant life at street level there is a whole other world across the roofscape of Venice, with small terraces perched precariously on the tiled roofs. Consider hunting out an apartment on the island with 'Campanile' views - rare, but... More

Some of the best photos of my trip to Venice I took from the Campanile. Go early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the line and get the best light. The elevator to the top is efficiently managed. Well worth the 8 euro cost.

The entrance fee is 7 euro. The elevator pick you up to 100 metro above the sea. It is worth to visit! Gorgeous views!

Take a lift to the bell tower and have a 360 degree view of the rooftops of Venice. It is a great way to see the vastness of the City, and to oriantate yourself. Look down on the domes of the Basillica, onto the Square of San Marco. A real photo opportunity. Not for those with vertigo!

It costs 8 Euros per person (including children) and the lift takes about 3 mins. No option to climb the stairs and cash only.

My husband and I were able to visit Piazza San Marco and see this amazing landmark building. We were visiting Venice in mid-March with our tour group that traveled with Gate 1 Travel. We did not go up the tower to see the magnificient views from the top since time did not permit but it was simply breathtaking to stand... More
