Having done "drafting" work for my career, the details in the local buildings is simply magnificent. This could not be done anywhere in the world today.

Located in St Mark's Square next to the Piazetta dei Leoni, this tower is featured in the James Bond film 'Moonraker'. Just to the right of the tower, you can see the Venini glass shop which is also featured in the film.

Booked tour online per Rick Steves' tour book. Definitely the way to go to avoid the line. Tour was not that exciting, but the view of St. Mark's from the top of the clock tower was awesome. Some of the best pictures we took in Venice.

We have booked the online tour and loved every minute of it.
Tip: to pick the tickets you'll need to go at the Correr Museum (at the other side of the square, facing the Basilica) and then your meeting point will be said.
Pictures are allowed, without flash tho.

We booked a tour online (easy to find on google) in English. We picked up the tickets at the Musee Correr, in the corner of San Marco, and was met at the door of the Clock Tower. There is a 6 story walk up, mostly on a wrought iron spiral staircase. On that level, you are where the large numbers rotate the time. The tour guide was excellent in explaining and demonstrating how the clock works. On that level, you can walk outside left and right on a terrace overlooking San Marco. For those not afraid of heights, two more levels up on the staircase brings you outside right at the feet of the giants! Extraordinary view over the entire city, we could even see the cruise ship in port. Our photos are fantastic. This was well worth it and I'd highly recommend it.
