The Loggetta is directly at the Base of the San Marco Campanile and is the place to purchase a ticket for the elevator to the top - highly recommended. Beautiful architecture & perhaps the world’s classiest Ticket Office! Enjoy!

Ticket office and elevator access to the Campanile in St Marks. It was built by Jacopo Sansovino in 1537-46 and originally used in 1569 as a sentry post for dockyard workers. Easily overlooked in favour of the Campanile.
