St. Mark's Tower (Campanile San Marco)

Campanile San Marco - St. Mark's tower Landmark of Venice

St. Mark’s Campanile

Landmark and highest point of Venice

Very characteristic and visible from far ahead, St. Mark’s Campanile rises above the famous St. Mark’s Square. Only a few other buildings are so established a part of the cityscape as this imposing tower. St. Mark’s Campanile was built in several stages between the 10th and the 12th century. A pointed dome was added to the tower in the 15th century. Visible from far ahead, the tower welcomed ships when approaching to Venice. When the city government tried to install an elevator in the tower in 1902, one of the biggest disasters in recent history happened in Venice. On14th July the Campanile collapsed entirely. Shocked by the collapse, the city government decided to rebuild the emblem of Venice in keeping with the old model, and on25th April 1912, St. Mark’s day, the impressive tower was once again restored to its former glory.

Today an elevator leads up to the bell tower of the Campanile. You should definitely take the time to go up the tower because you will have a really great view over Venice and the surrounding lagoon.
