Excellent bell tower that is 100 metres or 323 feet high. Famously collapsed in 1902 and was rebuilt within a decade. There is a lift nowadays to get to the top and the lift holds about 12 people so queues do build up. Once at the top you have excellent veiws over the area. In St. Mark's Square or San... More

Venice's Campanile has a lift so it is so easy to get to the top of the tower. We were there on a beautiful, clear & sunny day in August and the wait to get on the elevator was nonexistent because we arrived shortly after opening time at 8.30am.. The price is 8 euros and well worth it. Cash sales... More

This is another must do while in venice. Just make sure you go in the late afternoon to avoid the long lines. You get to see a great 360 degree view of Venice.

Time your visit to get at the Campanile first thing in the morning: we arrived just as it was opening at around 8.30am, cool, no crowds, no queueing and 8 Euros to get to the top! This is one of the few bell towers which has a lift almost to the top, so no stress or strain on those knees!... More

One of the best and highest views in Venice. The city is spread at your feet. The queue is usually around 90 minutes.

We visited the tower quite late in the day and was quite surprised at how quickly the que was going down. The view is spectacular and well worth the wait. I have been before but really wanted my partner to experience it, he was very impressed took lots of great photos.

This tower has an elevator, so there aren't tons and tons of stairs like so many others. The views from the top are spectacular. You do have to pay to go up, but we felt it was worth it. When we went, it was quite windy and a bit chilly.

We went later in the afternoon, around 4:30 PM and waited about 15 minutes in line before getting to the elevator which takes you to the top. Once at the top, you can spend as much time as you want there. The 360-degree view is very nice and you'll definitely be able to take awesome pictures. However, you'll have to... More

We had quite a bit of a wait here. The queue depends on the lift which holds about 12 at a time. The views at the tip are worth it. I would imagine it's even better at sunset. There's a lovely breeze up top too, I melted a little in the queue!

We went early on a Sunday morning, because we heard about the long lines later in the day. There is only one elevator holding about 8 people for both directions. So there is sometimes a queue to come back down! But the views are outstanding from up here! It's a must to do!

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.
