Owner description: Originally built as a lighthouse to assist navigation in the lagoon, visitors can be whisked by elevator to the top of St. Mark's Campanile or bell tower to savor incredible views of Venice, the lagoon and the Alps in the distance.

Surprisingly, I didn't find this tower to be worth the price. You see a sea of terracotta roofs from the top, as well as the islands in the distance, but that's about it. Who am I kidding, you'll probably go up anyways.

It is amazing to see all of Venice from the top of the Campanile. You wait on line to get into the tower, take an elevator to the top, and spend as much time as you like taking pictures of all the areas of Venice with a bird's eye view of all the rooftops. As with everything in Venice, with no down season, there are massive crowds. Go early and don't miss this.

We went up in the morning of a very hot clear day, the views over venice were amazing & we got some good pictures. It was really busy though.

If it's a clear day the Campanile offers an amazing view of the city. €8 entry is a little steep for what you get- a lift ride then the view- nothing more. Maybe the audio guide would have made this more worthwhile to explain all the sights from a height. This was at additional cost.

You really must do this, for a beautiful view across Venice and surrounding islands. It's an opportunity that can't be missed. A quick lift to the top, gives stunning views and amazing photographs to bring home. *It is breezy up their so zip up your jacket*
