Awesome views of Venice and the lagoon.Lift up 7 or 8 euro. The wait queue moves quickly. It is also nice to look down on St Marks and Ducal Palace

This has to be some of the best views in Europe. Well worth the 20 mns queue and eight euro fee. You get a birds eye view of the whole of venice

I queued for about 15 minutes for this and felt a bit aggrieved at the price for this attraction. It's basically a quick trip to the top in a lift and as much time as you like looking at the view from the top, before a quick trip down in the same lift, and out. However, what a view is... More

Not usually too long to wait. Elevator to the top, fantastic view over this fantastic city (...but not as good as good as the view from San Giorgio Maggiore!...). Not expensive, good fun.

The queue for this never seemed to be too long as there isn't that much to do at the top. You stand a look. But you can be up there a while as you stare at the views of Venice. Just be prepared, if you're up there when the bells chime - fingers MUST go into your ears!

Here in Venice and today went up the campanile. Lovely clear day and the views were amazing. Arrived at 9.30am, no queue hardly, only waited about 5 mins to enter the lift yo the top. Well worth the 8 euros to see panoramic view of the whole of Venice. Can highly recommend.

Be prepared to queue and get squashed and you won't be disappointed. It is packed, of course - it's a lookout point over Venice - but people are good-spirited and everyone gets their turn and chance to get the shots they want - just requires a little patience and consideration - it's the way forward in a tight spot.

Needless to say, the best way to view Venice from above is by scaling to the top of the Campanile di San Marco. Unbroken 360 panoramic views make this one of the most unique views in the flat city. A real pleasure to see the city from this perspective. The unattractive thing about it is that the whole experience feels... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
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.
