Queue up early to catch the lift to see Venice and the surrounding islands in the Lagoon, quite the best overall view of the city, the audio guide was well worth using.

This is a tall tower right in the courtyard of Saint Marks Basilica. It has an elevator to the top so if you can't do stairs the only ones are at the entrance in the ground. €8/adult and €4 for kids 6-18. They only take...More

The tallest tower in Venice is a must stop when in St. Marks Square. There is an elevator available which will take you to top, or if you are a masochist you can walk the stairs. The view is spectacular! I recommend doing this either...More

We just happened to stop by the Campanile thinking there would be long lines or it would be outrageously expensive or just stairs to the top. None of these were true, so we took the lift to the top where we enjoyed wonderful panorama views...More

The lines are long (even when they appear short from outside there is still a long wait due to the single lift taking limited numbers of people up and down) but if you want a great view of Venice this is the place to go

The clock tower is an iconic landmark and is worth a visit just for the views of this amazing city. Sensibly priced for amazing views. Again you will need to get there early to avoid the queue which builds quickly. there is only one lift...More

Go to venetoinside.com and pay to skip the line. We walked right in at our reserved time and were able to go straight up. Views are phenomenal and worth the price. Worth a trip up to check it out.

We bought timed tickets for the Campanile which saved us a lot of time. With a timed ticket, you go to the side entrance and walk right in. There is an elevator to the top with nice views of Venice.

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one
of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza

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

Hi... Can somebody please help me as to where can we buy tickets for the bell tower. Not able to find the online link. Also do we need to buy them in advance or at the place directly? Same questions for Doges palace and Correr museum. Thanks

Tickets available at both locations. Go early, say 8.30am, and there are no queues for either the Campanile or the Doges Palace

I don't think you need to buy in advance. In my case there wasn't even a line.
