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.

No advance tickets are available for this attraction so be prepared for a long wait at peak times. Once inside though, there is an excellent elevator system that whisks you straight to the top for fabulous views of the bells, the Duomo roofs, and of Venice and the surrounding lagoon. Definitely worth a visit to get the best views in... More

It was an awesome experience to view this awesome church while we are riding the famous gondola. It made our visit memorable as the sun was about to set that time.

We were lucky it was sunny when we went up the tower, the view was stunning, really charming to be able to see Venice with the islands. Definitely worth visiting while in Venice!

Visited here at end of November, the wait was less than 20 minutes to go up the tower in an elevator. Once you get up, the view is so breathtaking! Each side of the tower has a different but gorgeous view. Absolutely enjoyed this bell tower!

This was my first time up the Campanile. I'd been meaning to make the trek for a while and as looking forward to the ascent. But getting into an elevator and being transported to the top was not my idea of an experience! Of course the views are spectacular and makes the entrance price worth it - I liked it,... More

Staying in San Marco

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.
