If you fell in love with Venice from down at the level of the canals and pontes, you will surely also love it from a bird's eye view. It's beautiful to gaze out over the terra cotta rooftops and churches and it's not too hard to imagine 1000 years of history below you. In the summer, try to get in... More

From the Campanile you will see a panorama of this beautiful city from the magnificence of St. Mark's Square and the Doge's Palace, across acres of terracotta pantile roofs to the lagoon and its islands. Venice is a wonderful city to explore on foot but to see it from on high is simply amazing. There is a small charge to... More

I often steer clear of audio guides as it means my wife and I can discuss what we are seeing more freely, but at the top of the Campanile the information refers only to numbers on the audioguide! Either way, you'll find this more interesting if you already have a couple of days finding your way round Venice under your... More

You definitely have to go up this if you are in Venice. The views are amazing, and it's only 8 Euro each.

On a clear day the views from the top of the Campanile is amazing. You can see all of Venice (but none of the canals) and get a different perspective on the nearby major attractions. The number of people allowed at the top of the tower is regulated so it shouldn't get too crowded.

You reach the top of the bell tower by an elevator, so you have all your strengths to admire the wonderful viewaa of Venice from above.

To be honest I did not expect to fall in love with Venice. I was staying in Florence for two weeks and I decided to go to Venice for a day trip because I thought that maybe Venice was a bit overrated. Let me tell you that was not the case! Once the tourists scatter and you can move freely... More

Great bird's eye view to Venice. There may be a que but unlike most Italian towers, this one has a lift to take you up

Fantastic views, we went after having been in Venice a few days & had fun identifying the places we had visited. If you go right at the end of the day (~16.45 last one in) there are fewer people at the top & you catch the 5pm bells ! We were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunset over cloudless... 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.
