Bird's Eye View
Many people like the view from the top of the Campanille (bell tower) di San Marco, but I think it is too crowded. Andiamo! I prefer to go across the lagoon and take the elevator to the top of San Giorgio Maggiore.
You can see 360 degrees and on a clear day I swear you can see the mountains in the distance and the best view of Saint Mark's Square.
My first time up there, I made the mistake of getting to the top just before noon. I think my ears are still ringing from the bells!
