This bell tower, located at the Piazza San Marco, is one of the iconic symbols of Venice. It was finished in its present-day form in 1514 but in 1902 it collapsed. The restoration process started almost immediately after that and in 1912 the perfect replica of the original tower was finished.
There are five bells inside the bell tower, each with its own purpose. The tower features as a location in the popular computer game franchise Assassin’s Creed.
If you go to the top of the tower, you can enjoy the spectacular view of the city. There is an elevator so you do not need to worry about an exhausting climb up.
The number of people who are let to the tower at a time is limited so the place is never crowded. However, the ticket queues might take up to an hour. You can get here by water bus lines 1, 2 and 51.
