We went around 8 & there was no line & the sun was not setting quite yet but was giving everything a golden hue which made the great views amazing. Best place to see all of Venice! Great experience!

St Mark's Bell Tower has superb views of Venice! Having previously bought the ticket via Headout, I skipped the queue and took the elevator to the top in a few minutes. Well worth a visit!

The views from the belltower were excellent and great to get an overall understanding of Venice's layout. Our ticketing experience with Headout was also easy and hasslefree. Thankful to be in the first lift of the day to go up because it was getting crowded by the time we left. We didn't spend as much time as anticipated up there because it was just too busy/crowded & people wouldn't move on from viewpoints very quickly. We did think that the reason for pre booking tickets was to jump the queue, so found it a little disconcerting when people in the unreserved line were actually let in first to go and purchase tickets and some of those people were actually in the lift before we were given access (and we were second in line in the skip the line queue). We had also been standing and waiting equally as long for the tower to open. In fact some people who had just arrived actually got in before us. Also, felt the gentlemen setting up and in queue control could have been a little more friendly & helpful when people were confused which line to be start queuing in.

Throughly enjoyed the breathtaking views from the top. I was fortunate enough to have been in the first lift so easy to take photos but it got crowded quite quickly.

We arrived and were promptly allowed to the top of the tower to enjoy the beautiful views of the city. Having skip the line tickets is a must!!

The Beckoning Chimes of St. Mark's

Venice has an iconic religious and architectural history, of which the St. Mark Bell Tower is a symbol. The tallest structure in Venice, it is an unmistakable part of the Venetian landscape standing 99 meters high. The tower has a robust Byzantine architecture, while the golden rotating statue of the Archangel Gabriel caps the tower with a touch of classic Venetian splendor.

The Loggetta of San Sovino that serves as the base of the tower used to be an arsenal unit, and is lined with statues of Roman gods like Mercury and Apollo. The reliefs display intricate allegories like Cyprus as Venus, born on the islands close to the water.

Withstanding the Test of Time & Nature

Tread the steps of the terracotta tower or step into the lift to reach the 5 bells of St. Mark. The arches of the belfry form the perfect frame for the scenery of the Venetian Piazza and the bordering lagoons. Often visited by intellectuals like Galileo, the tower was an important center for political or administrative announcements marked by the chimes of the bell. Struck by earthquakes and lightning on multiple occasions, the tower continues to stand strong for decades.
