This 14th-century clock stands on the north side of St. Mark's Square,and is known by its large clock face displaying the hours of the day, phases of the moon and movement of the sun through the signs of the Zodiac.

Most people who go to Venice will visit the Doge’s Palace or St Marks and whilst they may look at the outside of this clock tower building, don’t actually go inside. Buy a ticket and take a tour of it! The inside is fascinating and...More
this beautiful tower features not only the winged lion of venice but an elaborate clock face. Because it stands beside the church it is easily over looked by passersby but is a beautiful decorative piece
The clock tower is beautiful, historic, and interesting to see from outside. But on our recent visit to Venice we were able to take a tour, and it was fascinating. The tours are limited to small groups (about 12, I think) so we signed up...More
There are lots of clocks and clock towers in Venice, some of very unusual design many built before the clock face format of 12 at the top was agreed, so many are 24hr with the number 24 in various quarters. Think we actually saw one...More
The views are a bit different than the Campanile, but far fewer people as the tour only allows 12 people for each time slot. Great history of the clock tower including the family that lived there, in order to maintain the clock. The stairwells are...More
We purchased this tour with our Secret Itineraries Doges Palace tour tickets, but did the tours on 2 different days. This tour is fairly short, but interesting. As a bonus, there's a pretty view of San Marco piazza from the top. It wasn't clear to...More
The Torre dell'Orologio on St Mark's Square is of huge importance, both practical, historical and symbolic in the story of Venice. All the greater pity then that it was obscured behind scaffolding for so long - undergoing a major renovation. Now though, this extraordinarily elaborate...More
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

MollyS, Did you ever get a response to this post? We are looking at this hotel and are not finding any information short of two items in the reviews...one positive, the other rather negative. Hoping to see more information... Debbie
Torre dell'Orologio and Doge's Secret Itineraries Tour (6 Replies)
I booked the Secret Itineraries tour a few weeks ago and just found the Clock Tower tour. I went to buy a ticket for the Clock Tower too and noticed that there is a reduced rate for 'those purchasing tickets for the Secret tour'. Do both tours have to be purchased at the same time? Or can I purchase the reduced rate and show my Secret Intineraries ticket, I would be doing them the same day? Thanks

Yes, you are entitled to purchase the reduced rate ticket for the L'Orologio. You won't have any problems as long as you have also purchased the Secret Itineraries tour.
