Gorgeous building

A must. We only walked around after being told that the visit was not worth it. Wonderful cafes available around it.

Sadly not great value for money . I've been up lots of tall buildings around the world , and while you can't really compare others to this , I can say that for 8 euro this wasn't really worth it and this is why. Although the views of Venice are great , you cannot see much due to the grill... More

I've been to Venice a few times and didn't realize that there was a lift to the top of this bell tower until my last visit! Can't believe I've missed this so many times. There is usually a small line when open. The line moves fairly quick. No need for a reservation. The cost is 8 euro. The lift is... More

For €8 each, which I thought was very reasonable, we were able to get a lift to the top of the bell tower. The views were sensational and helped us really get a grip of the geography of Venice. We took some stunning photos despite the overcast weather. When visiting Venice you simply must visit and go up this tower.

Pay the €8 per person: you will not regret it. Amazing views: we were there on a cloudy misty day and could still see so much of the city. Elevator to the top to save your legs for walking the rest of the city.

Being on San Marco square, it is the most photographed location. Although the top view is amazing but even the photos, captured at ground level with this tower in the background, are amazingly beautiful.

This is not a must do, the views are not spectacular. It's easy enough to take the elevator up. In March, we had a very short wait; however, they had no audioguides. It is definitely best to be there on the hour so you can see the bells in action, not just hear them.

This is the most photographed place in Venice. Take them at sunrise and better still sunset, with red sky and filter. Never went inside as there were queues when we went but next time will get there earlier.

Well worth going up this, especially on a sunny clear day. Can get a bit crowded up top and can be very winy, but it is worth it for the views.

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.
