Don't get me wrong - the views here are great. Most people visiting Venice probably don't want to take the time to take the short vaporetto ride across the water to San Giorgio Maggiore. It's free to visit San Giorgio's church and 6 Euro as...More

The 360 degree views were spectacular. I originally thought the entrance was kind of expensive. But I am so glad that we did this. Hearing the bells ring directly over head was really a fun experience. And we got some great photos.

It’s the obvious place for great views, but we were scared of the climb and how scary it might be. Fear not - it has a lift! Well worth the money for the view - but pick your moment early in the day or at...More

Wow. You must visit here if you come to Venice. The lift is not a scary experience. I was relieved because I thought it was more stairs. The view is just superb and worth the €8 entry fee.

Fantastic views across Venice and only a small entrance fee. Lift takes you straight up and back down again when you’re ready to leave.

The Bell Tower is right in the main square directly across from the Basilica. We arrived with tickets for 12:00pm and we left around 2:30pm. In that time we were able to see the tower, the basilica and Doges Palace.
