What people say

"Every grand cathedral needs a stunning bell tower, and the Campanile di San Marco is no exception. The tower's construction began in the early 10th century and lasted around 500 years, with many building phases. Despite the effort, the building collapsed in 1902 and was painstakingly rebuilt by 1912. Head inside to buy a ticket before taking the elevator to the top–one of the advantages of being rebuilt in the 20th century. You'll see 360-degree views of Venice's sights from up here, including the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge."
" Venice's most commanding landmark, the Campanile di San Marco, stands just opposite St. Mark's Basilica. The bell-tower of the basilica is the tallest building in Venice, at 99 metres, and happily it's open to the public who can enjoy the superb views over the city.                                        Climb the Campanile Di San Marco Bell Tower for best views of the city! Best views early morning or evenings. (book a time slot ahead of time)"
"The Campanile is the bell tower that dominates the skyline of Venice. The only way to the top is by elevator. From the top, your reward is one of the best views of the city."

Mentioned in these guides

There is so much to see and do in and around Venice, Italy that you could easily spend quite a few days here. This guide will detail MORE than enough things to do in 3-4 days in Venice and the surrounding islands. If you want MORE to do I've also spent time in the Prosecco Hills and the town of Treviso which are both about 45 minutes outside of Venice, feel free to reach out. I have also spent time in the nearby Dolomites so again, I am happy to consult with you about any of those areas as well! This guide will detail why you should visit Venice. -How to best arrive & exit Venice & how to get around while you are there. -Include multiple options for where to stay, all of which I have personally stayed in and can recommend. From luxury (our honeymoon hotel), to airbnb with an incredible water door onto the canal, to a more budget friendly hotel that also has a stunning canal view. There are options for everyone in Venice. -It will detail some amazing things to see, do, eat, and drink in Venice! -It will also detail how to take small day trips to neighboring islands of Burano, Murano, Torcello, and Mazzorbo. Why Venice? Venice is such a fantastic and romantic city.  Walking along or boating along the canals is an experience I truly believe you want to have in your lifetime.  Once you get the hang of it, it definitely feels like a "little big city".  You can walk to anything in Venice if you don't mind getting your steps in.  You can also get around by water bus, water taxi, and the famous gondolas.  You can eat SO well here and drink great wines at reasonable prices.  There are countless things to do and see here and the islands off of Venice are equally as exciting and beautiful!  This guide will detail tons of options for things to do in Venice.  Most of them I have done, I will add a few things I haven't done that I find would be truly worthwhile.  This way you can pick and choose what appeals best to you.  ***I am also available for consultation about your Venice trip and would love to talk to you and work with you to create your perfect experience!
