Bovolo Tower, Venice

Is the Bovolo Tower in Venice open for visiting to the top? If so, what are the hours and do you need a reservation? Thank you...

Additionally, do you need prior reservations for St. Marks Tower? St. Marks Basilica?

The Bovolo is not open to the public but still very worth visiting.

I presume with Saint Marks Tower you mean the Campanile? No you dont need to pre-book but certainly with the Basilica I do recommend that you go online and pre-book that for 1.5 euro as it guarantees you almost immediate entry otherwise you can spend hours queueing to get inside for what is only a 15 minute visit unless you pay out extra for each of the areas to visit.

There are ways of avoiding the queue for the Basilica without making a reservation. To see the Basilica in 15 minutes would not really do it justice. It is worth spending about 3€ to go upstairs to the museum and see the original horses, and see the mosaics from a bit closer. You can take a free guided tour of the Basilica most days at about 11 a.m. if you are interested in the history of the Basilica. Check the noticeboard to find out the days when the tour is in English.
