This Baroque Tower is undisputedly Venice’s most recognisable landmark. That’s why the city won’t let it die. Since the first tower was erected in the 10th century, it’s been repeated struck down by calamity after calamity (usually fires and earthquakes), and each time they just built it back up again, adding a little extra detail here and there each time. In this way was added the belfry, the attic, the gold leaf spire, the Logetta, the lightning rod, and the statue of an angel. The tower’s current look dates from about the 16th century. It collapsed again in 1902, and finally the government built it back up, but with structural reinforcements.

Make sure you climb and see the 360 degree observatory!! An elevator could take you to the top too. Highlights:

  • 98.6 meters tall
  • Arched belfry houses five bells (ask the locals for their specific functions).
  • Walking lions atop the belfry.
  • The Goddess of Justice (Venice)
  • Pyramidal spire with a golden weather vane of the Angel Gabriel.
  • Logetta, an ornate podium.
  • The observatory, from which you can see the Alps.

    This is an iconic and beautiful tower but like everything in Venice, expect large crowds.

  • Be careful of when the bells will go off (unfortunately I was standing right beside one when they decided to chime many times). It is just an awe inspiring place.Great view over entire Venice. Definitely must go here when you visit Venice. It is the highest possible point and you can take some awesome pictures. Also due to the height, there is a very chilling wind blowing.

  • WOW! okay granted..there are so many towers littered around the Venice area but none so much as well known as St. Mark's campanile. It was well worth getting up on time and waiting in line for 15 minutes to ascend this beauty. It costs 8 euro for an elevator to the top and it is worth every cent. The views from the top are sensational and jaw-dropping. Definitely the best view in venice. The original Companile collapsed in 1902. But was rebuilt into the structure you see today. Quite a work of architecture that gives you an amazing view of the surrounding lagoon and Venice cityscape. I would give it all the high fives.. Definitely is a do not miss item on your trip to Venice.

  • You must get a look from every side to really see Venice. It is beautiful at sunset. Be careful of when the bells will go off (unfortunately I was standing right beside one when they decided to chime many times).Also due to the height, there is a very chilling wind blowing. This is very nice if you have been running arround the city in the hot sun all day.

Fast lane access not needed y the line has never exceeded a few people. If you buy a fast lane ticket, you are only allowed to enter the tower on the specific time frame, given on your ticket.
