Probably the best view of Venice that you will get but the average person probably only spends 10 mins at the top. Fortunately we didn't queue for long. Some may say it's expensive at €8 for 10 mins but it's probably worth it. Try and...More

We bought the skip the queue tickets and found the entry via the side door. It was quite worth it as there was a long queue on Sunday afternoon. After a short elevator ride, the views from the top are amazing. It might be better...More

Having read about the huge queues to go up the Bell Tower, we bought a "skip the line" ticket in advance, and were glad we did; for the extra €3, it was well worth it. After a short elevator ride to the top of the...More

This is a great place to get an overview of the main island of Venice - its strange to be able to look out over all the houses and not see the canals that thread this city

Bell tower in the heart of Venice. You reach a great height but it is worth the ascent for the views. On a clear day you can see for miles.

There is really nothing else to this attraction but an elevator ride to the top and the views, but the views are impressive. It is a good side stop to other attractions on St. Marks Square and won't take long (not counting any waiting time)....More

We saw a huge queue mid afternoon, and decided to delay our visit until later in the week, and earlier in the morning. We returned around 9am a couple of days later, and there was no queue! The visit is quite expensive, at 8 Euros...More

The Bell Tower is right in the main square directly across from the Basilica. We arrived with tickets for 12:00pm and we left around 2:30pm. In that time we were able to see the tower, the basilica and Doges Palace.
