Basilica di San Marco-Campanile
You get a splendid view of Venice and the Basilica di San Marco from the tallest bell tower in Venice. It can be seen from the laguna, and once you have reached the top, the whole laguna can be seen from above. Even though the tower was erected at the beginning of the 20th Century, it is an exact replica of the 15th-century bell tower. In 1609, Galileo Galilei exhibited his telescope here, and during the Carnevale , the bell tower used to serve as a stage for the tight rope-walkers who entertained the doge with their acrobatics.
The Campanile allows you a birdseye view of this beautiful city. On a clear day, you can see the Adriatic Sea to the east and Murano to the west. The elevator ride to the top is modern and only cost a few euro. WELL WORTH THE TIME!!!!!!
THe view is great. Make sure you pick a time when the lines are shorter. It's super crowded even then. Also, beware of the bells. If you are up there when they go off, they are right above your head and it must be deafening. Overall it's a good experience though.
