The very special clock with a bunch of indicators, beautiful artwork, and moving figures.
Look and the digits indicator for 5 min and you will see the number changing.

Many people told me that it was a must, so since it was close to Piazza San Marco I took some time for it. Well, if you're there just go and see it, but don't expect nothing too special. At least, that is my experience

This Clock Tower is an early Renaissance building on the north side of the Piazza San Marco, at the entrance to the Merceria. There is the tower which contains the magnificent clock, with buildings either side which form three sides of the square. It adjoins the eastern end of the Procuratie Vecchie. Okay, that's the tourist guide description, but the reality is that this is such a wonderful building which would stand alone anywhere in the world and be admired for it's magnificence. Unfortunately it is often overlooked because it has the misfortune to be located at one end of St Mark's Square and is surrounded by buildings and sights which simply take your breath away. But if you can ignore the surroundings for a while, and give the building the attention it deserves you will find it will repay your time, it truly is magnificent. and will give you bragging rights over friends who have been to Venice and never noticed it. Give it a try and see them look puzzled when they realise that they have missed such a gem, not even a hidden gem, but in plain sight.

What a masterpiece! Unmissable when visiting Piazza San Marco. Lucky to have seen this superb piece strike on the hour when we at the top of Basilica San Marco, right near it. Fabulous.

Seeing The Clock Tower at San Marco Square is unmistakable when at the grand Piazza - you’ll surely see it as you gaze at all of the beautiful architectural structures. It’s a treat to be in the square on the hour when the clock tower chimes the hour, by number or bell repeats, & the figures move. Enchanted! Ciao!
