The view overthere is great. Waiting time his, on top, as long as at the bottom. Also, it is mentioned you can download an app to get comment, but it doesn't exist.

The views from the top of this building are sensational. You can see The Alps in the distance and you can see over to the Lido too. It's beautiful. Would say this is a must do when you go to Venice.

Long line to wait for the elevator but worth it. Pay £8 per person. Go round to see the view and then line up to use the elevator to go down. Beautiful view! And very breezy!

Most bell towers I have ascended involve steps. Many steps. Some have lift AND step options. This Campanile ONLY has a lift option, which reduces the visit time, but I would say it is still worth it for the view across Venice, and you can see some of the islands. Space can be cramped, and the lift is small so... More

Do yourself a favor and pay the 8 Euro's to get in! The view from the top is worth the money! You'll be taken by an elevator so don't worry about the efort to get up.

There is no other chance to see Venezia from such a perspective, as from Campanile di San Marco. The view is amazing and the price is definitely worth it. We've been there early in the morning just after opening and there was no queue. Most recommended.

For all panoramic views lovers : go ! The sea, the city, you can see everything. A bit crowded but definitely worth it, especially at sunset.

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.
