Venice is a place that I could visit over and over. Definitely worth seeing and I highly recommend seeking out local Venetian shops and restaurants, most are located off the beaten path.

Pre-booked tickets, however, maybe for April there are less crowds and probably didn’t need to. Elevator or lift as some call it to the top, couldn’t be easier. You can spend as long as you want looking at Venice below in every direction. Gives you...More

Awesome views of Venice are unparalleled. Watch your ears if the bell rings while you are at the top of the tower. You can pay to skip the line and I’d recommend if the line is looking too long. Take your time at the top...More

If you stay at the Piazza San Marco you shouldn't miss to enter the Campanile. Already in the 9. century there was a bell tower here. The design of the todays shape with the spire and gilded angel comes from 1514. In 1902 all the...More

Early enough in the morning (and week) for the queue to be acceptable. Only about 10 minutes. €8 each well worth it. Lift both ways evens out the loading. Great views on all sides and info if you want it.

The sights were awesome at the top. The bell ringing was challenging but thrilling at the same time. We arrived just before noon, saw the views, loved it, and then the ringing began. If you can stand it, do it! The line might be long,...More

We went up the tower in early April at about 18:15 hours, so the queue was short. I can't imagine what it will be like during peak hours. The only downside is that the lift is small and only holds 11 people and the viewing...More

My visit in February was cold, rainy and windy, there were signs warning of the high wind on the top of the tower, but I had never been up and it was my only day to try. It was crazy how hurricane force winds felt...More

Not too bad in the late afternoon so we spent almost an hour overlooking the most photogenic city in the world. Needs some TLC but still a great view

We queued for around an hour, but the view from the top is breathtaking. Seeing every side from Venice, be warned there are no toilets so once you start queueing you won’t be able to go until you go out

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.
