This is the bell tower in St Mark's Square, a highly recognisable shape on the Venetian landscape and is yet another jewel in the St Mark's Square area making this part of the city a must-see location. It's taller than you would expect and sets an imposing stature over the area. Highly recommended

For those who love beautiful views from an altitude, you can’t go wrong here! I would suggest climbing up just before the sun is down so that you get the day view as well as the twilight view! We did that in September and it was absolutely lovely. We enjoyed it and I felt it was 8 EUR well spent!

Stunning views once you get to the top, and it is amazing to see full expanse of the city from up high. You get to fully appreciate all the canals and connecting bridges across islands in Venice. You won't get better scenic pictures of Venice anywhere else

The line was not too bad and the price was expected for the spectacular views of this beautiful city. It was less that 10 EUR and you received an elevator ride all the way up and down, Contrary to the Bell Tower in Florence. That said, for my wife and I the only downside would be the packing in the... More

This bell tower provides some of the best possible views of Venice. From the top you can see the St Mark's Square, upper part of the Basilica of San Marco, Venetian buildings with red rooftops, Grand Canal, surrounding islands and more... The views are best on a sunny day. The day I visited, it was a cold November morning and... More

Unfortunately I miss to visit il Campanile di San Marco, you must have a reservation, but I know this view will be fantastic, the campanile is the hightest point of Venise and you can see the silhouettes of the Dolomites.

What a surprise! There was a short line, so my daughter and I jumped in and went to the top of the tower. What beautiful views! We missed the bells, which would have been fun.

We went to the top of the bell tower, the views are amazing, however the staff were grumpy and it wasn't worth €8 each for a 5 minute look at the city.

Neighbourhood 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.
