The Bell Tower

Directly across from the basilica is the bell tower. It’s sort of like Venice’s version of the Sears Tower or The Empire State Building. An elevator takes you up to a viewing platform where you get the bird’s eye view of Venice. We took our first trip on a vaporetti, water taxi, to get here since we had already trekked from the hotel to the square and back once already and as previously mentioned, not by the direct route. 🙂 There is a far green dome in one of the photos that shows the walk.
