You get an excellent view of central Venice from the top. Unfortunately the day I chose to visit was extremely cold (something like -11 C) so it was a quick visit. I took a few photos and went back down after about 10 minutes, as did everyone else. Well worth the 8 Euro, though I would probably try again on... More

Campanile di San Marco (Bell Tower) in Venice is dominating the city a Location from which you can observe the surround area best. The original tower, modified several times, finally collapsed in 1902, and rebuilt again. The view from the top is brathtaking albeit an Admission fee. You can get there by vaporetto line 1,2 stop San Marco.

The tower is definitely worth to go, even if you need to queue for some times. Easy access by an lift. The view is just amazing, waking around the top of the tower you can see the whole city and more. Perfect opportunity for taking great pictures. Enjoy!

Its only a tower but the viewer great. There are NO steps because you are taken up by lift. The views are spectacular.

Amazing must do view point. But the queue for the tickets and entry is very long. Try to time this for the view of the sunset.

It is a very nice tower and has some remarkable views. I prefer the view from the top of the church adjacent.

The best views in Venice. There is an elevator up and down so no you don't have to climb any stairs. From the top you can see all of Venice and the breathtaking Dolomite mountains.

I was really excited to go up the Campanile having read much about its history I was really interested to learn much more about its story. As we waited in the queue I couldn't wait to see the surrounding views of Venice from the tallest building there. However after paying the €8 entry fee I left feeling slightly disappointed. Don't...

The Campanile de San Marco is absolutely worth your time and (very little) money to experience. This is a slightly odd attraction in that it can have a massive line waiting to climb the tower one day, and the next day you can virtually walk straight in and be experiencing the views within minutes. Having spent the weekend in Venice,

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.
