  Amazing views from the top of the Campanile
by Krystynn

The CAMPANILE - a 99 meters high bell tower is actually the oldest building on Piazza San Marco.

Construction work on the Campanile started as early as in the 9th century. However, the whole structure collapsed on July 14,1902. Thankfully, nobody was killed or injured except for the caretaker's poor cat!

In 1912, a completely rebuilt Campanile was opened to the public.

For tourists, you can take an elevator right to the top of the tower for a panoramic view over the entire city of Venice. You won't regret it.
