Got up early one morning and was up the top of the tower in time for the bells to chime at 0900 hrs. Great views across Venice. Check the times if you want to see the bells chime as they do not chime on every hour. Get up early to avoid any queues otherwise you will be queuing in the... More

We went later in the afternoon and the wait in line was not very long and it is also a little cooler, especially in the summer. It can get a little crowded at the top, so you often need to wait for an opportunity to take pictures of the city below.

Fantastic views of Venice. On a clear day you can see for miles. If you have the time to wait and pay 8 Euros a person it's well worth it.

This tower has a very long line and the tickets are expensive, but it was all worth it. The views there can allow you to see almost all the islands near Venice and also Venice itself. Remember to bring a wind jacket or fleece because it is both windy and cold up there.

We loved this bird's eye view of Venice to get a different perspective. It was well worth the money and time.

The queue is almost as long as the one for the Basilica, but if you want to experience the lovely views from above, just do it. The queue isn't too bad once you're in the shade, we waited about 20 minutes. The lift is quick and easy taking you up, and the views are lovely from each angle. You see... More

Get in line early and take your camera. Honestly, the views from the top are amazing...you just need to fight your way through the hoards of Chinese and Japanese tourists hogging pretty much every opening. Oh and watch out for stepping on kids playing Pokemon Go.

It was a lovely clear day so we got a good view of the whole city so if this is of interest then go for it. It is a beautiful city so it is a lovely view. It's about 8 euros pp but be prepared to queue to get up there, there not an awful lot of room for moving... More

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.
