Unfortunately I can't download my picture but the views are stunning. Go early to avoid big queues and take water. You get the lift all the way to the viewing platform and you can see the city.

Get to the Campanile before 10am and miss the long queues later in the day. Fantastic panorama and very reasonable cost

Another posted that this should be where you start your Venetian holiday, but I disagree as you first need to come out of the train station and take on the grand canal. Once you have done this, THEN you drop your bags off at the...More

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
What are its opening hours on a Sunday?
