Full description
St. Mark’s Bell Tower overlooks the whole of Venice and its lagoon. When you climb to the top you’ll enjoy far-reaching views, nearly to the Dolomites on a particularly clear day.

Thanks to your skip-the-line ticket you won’t be waiting at the main entrance: You’ll be admitted to the Bell Tower through a special entrance. Choose the day and time you prefer from those available and be prepared to enjoy breathtaking views of Venice and its surroundings on a 35-minute visit.

You’ll learn about the tower’s role in history as well. In 1609 Galileo proved the effectiveness of his telescope right above St. Mark's Bell Tower.

Each of the 5 large bells in its loggia had a precise role in the everyday routines of Venice. The Marangona is the only original surviving bell: It announced the beginning and end of the working days of the carpenters of the Venice Arsenal and the meetings of the Great Council. The Nona marks midday, the Trottiera informed nobles about the meetings of the Great Council, the Mezza Terza rang on the occasion of meetings of the Senate and the Malefico announced an execution.
