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.

I loved the guide and the view. I recommend it. You need the book your visit online or at phone.
