Wow can't believe it only cost 8Euro each to go go to the top of the tower (by lift) and see all of Venice beneath us. We had the added bonus of sunshine & snow on the Alp's. Please don't miss this opportunity.

We paid €8 each to go to the top of the Campinile which was well worth it to gain a panoramic view of Venice!! It was a bit chilly at the top but so so pretty to see Venice at such a height!

This tower was one of the first truly touristy things we did in Venice, and it was worth it for some of the best views over Venice and across the lagoon. There is an elevator to the top, so it's also suitable for people with...More

The view is breathtaking! You can count all the little islands surrounding the old town, as well as see the rooftops of the cathedral and clock tower. If you decide not to book tickets in advance, expect to wait approx. 40 mins in a queue....More

The view is nice, but unfortunately you are not allowed to use tripod to take a picture, not even a mini one. It was heavy shade and I try to use the mini portable tripod and the guy will come up and said “No Support”!!!

The view from the top of the bell tower is just incredible. No need to walk up ... the elevator will get you to the top in just a few seconds.
