The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Iconic Views of Venice!
Oct 2021
Worth the 10 Euros for the elevator ride to the top of the tower to see 360 degree views of much of Venice.

Beautiful View

Only 10 euros to take the lift to the top of the tower. You get an amazing view of the city. I recommend going at sunset to really get a sense of the beauty of Venice (there's also fewer people).

Another must see and visit place, we stayed about 5 minutes walk from this area, we enjoyed it. However, it is the busiest part of the island and I highly recommend to explore more like Burano and Murano Islands.

To view from the up, we could not. The views looked like average. All average views. Pricey. Not recommended.

Well worth the 10 euros
Oct 2020
The 360 degree views from the top are fantastic, we went up on a bright sunny day and could see clear to The Alps. Might not be so good with dull weather.
As Venice is so quiet at the moment we only had to queue for about 10mins for the lift. Hate to think what it must have been like pre pandemic.

The benefit of visiting Venice during the pandemic was the minimal queues for attractions. We waited less than 10 minutes for the elevator ride to the top and there were limited numbers of people admiring the views. As expected the views are stunning and the 10 euro entrance fee wasn't unreasonable.

Well worth a Visit
Sep 2020
This is the tower in St marks Square which you can go up by list. Entrance was 10 euro and well worth it for the views over Venice and the islands. Only 4 people were allowed up and down in the list at a time to allow for social distancing. As a result wee queued for about 10 mins to go up. Well worth it for the views.

Amazing views

It is €10 to enter, which I think is reasonable. There is a lift to the top, phew. With social distancing there was a temperature check for each before you bought your tickets. We queued for approx 20 mins and then shared the list with only 2 other people. At the top there is not the option for a one way system based on the design but most people were socially respectful.
The views are wonderful, covering of Venice on 4 side. With it being he tallest building by far the views are uninterrupted.

Expensive
Sep 2020 • Couples
The campanile is not worth visiting because you use an elevator straight to the top.
The view is excellent. But your ticket is 10 euro what is expensive for a nice view...

Great views of the area
Sep 2020 • Couples
Had to queue for a bit but well worth it for the fantastic views of the whole area. We were surprised to find there was a lift to the top, expecting the usual trudge up numerous steps.
