The Campanile was my favourite attraction in Venice. Seeing the city from the tower provided a scenic view of the true beauty of Venice. Seeing St. Mark's Square, and all of its patrons milling about, and the Grand Canal, with all of its chaos and traffic was quite something. Well worth the wait in line!

Well worth the entry fee! Glad we arrived early, stood in line and were on the first elevator to go up. Once we left, we saw the line had easily 200 people in it! On a clear day you can see for miles, excellent panoramic views of the city.

Visited on a bright December day , 323ft in about 10 seconds thanks to a lift rather than the stairs which i have done before. Amazing views from all sides, gives you a great perspective of Venice and the colours of the roof tops etc , well worth the entrance fee which was 8 euros each

Well worth the €8 admission to take the lift up and see over the city. This is still the highest point in Venice, and St Mark's Square looks amazing from the top. You can see right over to the mainland. It is worth pointing out that Campanile means bell tower, and the bells hang directly over your head when you're... More

?8 for some wonderful panoramas, but would have felt very ripped off if we hadn't delayed until the sky cleared! Elevator only, so don't worry if you're not up for a hike.

This was the first thing my Partner and I did upon arriving in Venice, I had been on trip advisor and read how wonderful the views were so we considered the 8 euro's very reasonable for entry. When we reached the top the views were absolutely breath taking, the viewing area is not very large but the lift system seems... More

A bit pricey for a simple elevator ride (8 Euro), but the day was sunny and the views spectacular when we went. The place closed before actual sunset, but the colors on the rooftops reached their peak when we were there. We could clearly see the snow covered Dolomite mountain range. A spectacular 360 degree bird's eye view of Venice!

Venice may be a flat city but there's still much to see from the top of this bell towel overlooking St Mark's Square. The lift to the top will cost you about €8 but is a worthwhile experience. The views of the harbor, the labyrith like city, and the square are well worth the cost and time. Definitely take a... More
