take the time to learn about 'time' and how it's represented on this building. The story behind it is absolutely fascinating.

in St. Marks Square. Just one more attraction to see while visiting this area. The face of the clock Is in Blue/Gold with a 24 hour dial and the Zodiac symbols. Great photo opportunity.

You cannot miss the Clock tower located near the Bell Tower and the Basilica. It is simply gorgeous and unique with it's Latin letters on it, no wonder there is a huge crowd taking pictures of it from all angles.
