There are many great clocks in the world. I think this is one of my favourites as its very pretty, hard to miss, has a lot more detail than most, and it has a handsome lion on top.

Fantastic tower leading off St Mark's Sq to the back streets of San Marco with weird clock and bells. The clock is based on astrological signs and a 24 hour clock with a clockwork digital clock above and 2 figures striking to hours and quarters..
