Top ways to experience Campanile di San Marco
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Solid 1912 replica of a historic watch tower
Sep 2021
This is a solid almost 100m high structure right next to the basilica at San Marco piazza. Glad it is a replica dating from 1912, as the original tower collapsed due to bad maintenance and design shortcomings. Moreover, the new tower has an elevator. The architecture is not very appealing, as the tower primarily served military purposes to watch possible enenies approaching and light for orientation.

As with many viewpoints in a center, it is often better to observe from some distance. In the case of Venice, a good alternative is the belltower of San Georgio Maggiore on an island just east of Giudecca opposite San Marco square.

A lovely view
Oct 2021 • Couples
€10 each, trip advisor says 1-2 hours but you could spend as little as ten minutes at the top. However, the views are lovely. We timed it right so we could watch the sunset - but it got very crowded at the top and there were plenty of selfish people that wouldn’t move so others could take photos.
The lift allows 12 people up at a time and they hand out masks on arrival to wear.

Iconic Views of Venice!
Oct 2021
Worth the 10 Euros for the elevator ride to the top of the tower to see 360 degree views of much of Venice.

Beautiful View
Sep 2021 • Solo
Only 10 euros to take the lift to the top of the tower. You get an amazing view of the city. I recommend going at sunset to really get a sense of the beauty of Venice (there's also fewer people).

Another must see and visit place, we stayed about 5 minutes walk from this area, we enjoyed it. However, it is the busiest part of the island and I highly recommend to explore more like Burano and Murano Islands.

To view from the up, we could not. The views looked like average. All average views. Pricey. Not recommended.

Well worth the 10 euros
Oct 2020
The 360 degree views from the top are fantastic, we went up on a bright sunny day and could see clear to The Alps. Might not be so good with dull weather.
As Venice is so quiet at the moment we only had to queue for about 10mins for the lift. Hate to think what it must have been like pre pandemic.

The benefit of visiting Venice during the pandemic was the minimal queues for attractions. We waited less than 10 minutes for the elevator ride to the top and there were limited numbers of people admiring the views. As expected the views are stunning and the 10 euro entrance fee wasn't unreasonable.

Well worth a Visit
Sep 2020
This is the tower in St marks Square which you can go up by list. Entrance was 10 euro and well worth it for the views over Venice and the islands. Only 4 people were allowed up and down in the list at a time to allow for social distancing. As a result wee queued for about 10 mins to go up. Well worth it for the views.
