Walk and see Gondola in Venice

Pigeons flew in front of SAN Marco. Romantic scenes for couples. Taxi boat floated fast. Feel the scent of Casino Royale.

Waited for about twenty minutes in the queue. A small lift (elevator) whisks you up to the viewing platform where you have a 360 degree view of Venice. It was a little crowded but this didn't detract from the enjoyment. The huge bells are just above your head. There are telescopes, however, we had binoculars with us. Loved it.

You have to go up here. The queue was short so we were up in 5 mins and took lots of amazing photos. Views are stunning. One of the best things to do in Venice.

Missed this last time we were in Venice. Fast lift to the observation gallery. Views are well worth a wait.

This is the bell tower in St Mark's Square, a highly recognisable shape on the Venetian landscape and is yet another jewel in the St Mark's Square area making this part of the city a must-see location. It's taller than you would expect and sets an imposing stature over the area. Highly recommended

For those who love beautiful views from an altitude, you can’t go wrong here! I would suggest climbing up just before the sun is down so that you get the day view as well as the twilight view! We did that in September and it was absolutely lovely. We enjoyed it and I felt it was 8 EUR well spent!

Stunning views once you get to the top, and it is amazing to see full expanse of the city from up high. You get to fully appreciate all the canals and connecting bridges across islands in Venice. You won't get better scenic pictures of Venice anywhere else

The line was not too bad and the price was expected for the spectacular views of this beautiful city. It was less that 10 EUR and you received an elevator ride all the way up and down, Contrary to the Bell Tower in Florence. That said, for my wife and I the only downside would be the packing in the... More

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.
