Bird’s eye view of Venice
Campanile building is located on San Marco Square, opposite St. Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace and is the tallest structure in the city of Venice. Thanks to its size, Campanile reveals to the travelers a delightful panoramic view to all city districts, the whole lagoon, the Lido in the vicinity and even to the Dolomite on a fine sunny day.
Facts about Campanile Building
Originally built between 888 and 912, Campanile building is almost 99 m high and has been subject of repeated reconstructions. According to the legend the Roman Emperor Frederick III reached the top on his horse back in 1451. In July 1902 the bell tower collapsed to be rebuilt after that just as it was and where it was on the date promised. Campanile building once had steep steps to the top, but now there is a lift inside. The place is a great spot for taking photos.
