It took a very long time to get inside-a very long time. It seemed it could have moved a bit more efficiently.

It was an indicental climb at dusk, being at the square and noticing a rather short line. If it had been a long one, no way! 8 euros, a bit pricy to this sort of POI but quick and easy access to the top in an elevator. Just imagine standing way up high overlooking a panaromic view around you and... More

Beautiful place, full of art, history, culture, lovely to walk around, have some wine and nibbles, but definitely not recommended during peak season! we had to deal with masses of people every step of the way, on every bridge, in front of any building or church that was pretty. Also wouldn't recommend with children, although they did love the gelato... More

The campanile in St Marcs Square dominates the square and for a few euros you can take a lift to the top and have a spectacular view of the whole of Venice. Once again it is a good idea to go early to avoid long queues

Looks incredible but if you want to climb it to experience the views you will have to queue for a long time.

€8 ticket, lift all the way up so no stairs problem, stunning views. If you're sensisitve to loud noise time your visit not to coincide with the ringing of bells when you're up there cause I don't think it's a pleasant experience.

Reserved a front of the line pass through Veneto Inside, pass is free but a 2 Euro service fee. Reserved a time slot of 9AM so were literally one of the first people to enter. No lines to wait in to see the sites inside. Paid the fee to see the Altarpiece (well worth it) and also the museum up... More

Please don't have any doubt, buy the cheap ticket and get the top of this tower. You will see the better view of Venezia. Be carefull, at that height it´s cold, don´t forget a coat. As I ever recomend, check the memory and the battery of your camera before let the hotel. The tail is a little long for admit... More

The views from the top make the time spent waiting to get up there worth it. Suggest you try later in the day when the queues seemed shorter and you might see one of the cruise ships leaving!
