TAKE THE ELEVATOR TO THE TOP OF THE CAMPANILE, VENEZIA
C'mon - you have no excuse... It's an elevator! You don't even walk up stairs to get to the top! Such a deal... And what a view - seeing the Basilica San Marco from the top is very cool, as is the view of the city from way up there. Be aware of the time, however, as the bells are virtually within arms' reach and would be deafening if they went off when you were up there. (This picture is the Basilica's domes from the top of the Campanile.)

Directions: If you're standing in the Piazza San Marco, you can't miss it - it's to the right of the Basilica (if you're looking at the Basilica). This Campanile is the one they rebuilt after the original collaps
