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.
