Venice Travel Guide

Bell Tower (Campanile di San Marco)

Bell Tower (Campanile di San Marco)

Originally built in the 9th century, this 318-foot (97-metre) bell tower is the highest structure in Venice, and offers visitors breathtaking views of the cupolas of St. Mark's, the lagoon, its neighbouring islands and the red rooftops and church domes of Venice. When the air is clear, one can even spot a snow-capped peak of the distant Dolomite Mountains but, strangely enough, not one canal can be seen from this bell tower. The tower collapsed unexpectedly in 1902 and was rebuilt exactly as before, even rescuing one of the five historical bells that are still in use today (each bell was rung for a different purpose, such as war, the death of a doge, religious holidays, etc).
