Another posted that this should be where you start your Venetian holiday, but I disagree as you first need to come out of the train station and take on the grand canal. Once you have done this, THEN you drop your bags off at the...More

Adjacent to St Mark's Basilica and on the edge of St Mark's Square, this tower gives spectacular views over the area, along the Grand Canal and out into the Laguna Vaneta. Visit either first thing in the morning, or about an hour before it closes:...More

Get here early to avoid the queues. You have to go up by lift - which spoils the sense of achievement - but the views are marvelous (on a clear day).

We visited this stunning St Mark's Square landmark when the tower first opened, the queue was very small and we got to the top very quickly. This is so worth the €8 price (concessions for children, cash only for bills of over €30). The views...More

The viewing level of the Campanile offers great views over the city of Venice. Good to put all the pieces together. The elevator trip to the top is worth the cost. Numbers are limited so there can be a lengthy queue. I was lucky. When...More

The Bell Tower of St Marks and the whole area of the Plazza San Marco is a Fantastic place to wander around and a place of great interest and beauty.

Queue up early to catch the lift to see Venice and the surrounding islands in the Lagoon, quite the best overall view of the city, the audio guide was well worth using.

This is a tall tower right in the courtyard of Saint Marks Basilica. It has an elevator to the top so if you can't do stairs the only ones are at the entrance in the ground. €8/adult and €4 for kids 6-18. They only take...More

Hi... Can somebody please help me as to where can we buy tickets for the bell tower. Not able to find the online link. Also do we need to buy them in advance or at the place directly? Same questions for Doges palace and Correr museum. Thanks

Tickets available at both locations. Go early, say 8.30am, and there are no queues for either the Campanile or the Doges Palace
What are its opening hours on a Sunday?

I don't think you need to buy in advance. In my case there wasn't even a line.
