Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Torre dell'Orologio
A distinctive feature of the Piazza San Marco in Venice, Torre dell'Orologio keeps time on an early Renaissance building over the Merceria entrance. In the 15th century, this was strategically placed high above the piazza so travelers looking into the city from the lagoon could recognize Venice's wealth and innovation. In the lower two floors of the clock tower, an archway connects the political center and commercial centers of the city. Add Torre dell'Orologio to your Venice travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Venice attractions planner.
Torre dell'Orologio reviews
Passed by and take a photo. Just another buiding in Piazza San Marco. As you can see in the photos, this building is very decadent and dirty as all architecture in Venezia. more »
Beautiful clock tower in front of the basilica of San Marco that every hour you hear the Moors ringing the bells. more »
Like everything else in Venice, this is some impressive Italian engineering and architecture. It is worth a look if you are passing by. There is plenty of space in the nearby square to move around to get a good look at the building and find the perfect angle to get the best photo for social media.
I loved the guide and the view. I recommend it. You need the book your visit online or at phone.
