The Campanile is, perhaps, Venice's most iconic structure. It is also the tallest building in Venice and visible from almost everywhere. Visitors can take an elevator to the top (for 8 euros) and get a panoramic view over the city. The price of the lift has gone up over the years, but the view is well worth the cost.
