Went to this tower in the early morning as there wasn't really a line. The view is expansive and is truly fantastic with the sun shining across. You can't really get the same view anywhere else. It allows you to appreciate how historic everything is.

If you are a photo lover, this is your place in Venice. The view from the tower is amazing! I recommend to arrive early or buy in advance the tickets!

It rings every hour, so visit the campanile before hourly times to enjoy the view. We actually went up and twas 6pm, hearing the bell in front of us is a thousand decibels and it’s a lesson, but i have enjoyed the experience amidst.

The view was breathtaking! Wait time can be a bit long, 40 minutes to an hour, but for the price it’s once of the best views we saw on our Italy trip.

A visit to Venice is not complete unless you seize the opportunity to admire the city from above... With its 99 metres of height, St Mark’s Campanile offers the best view over the city and its lagoon! However, many visitors often skip this fascinating landmark...More
