We did not book tickets inside but we admired the clock from the ground, top of the tower as well as the roof of saint marks. The blue face is beautiful, but the way the clock provides dual time (regular hands plus digital) is pretty...More

Last saw the tower about 20 years ago. It has been cleaned since and looked stunning. The blues and golds really stood out. Make sure you get there on the hour so you don't miss the moors striking the bell.

We were not able to go inside, not sure if that's even an option. Love the facade, very interesting tower!
