Itinerary

DAY ACTIVITY

The Story of St. Mark's Clocktower

*walking tour

The eye-catching sapphire face on the ‘Torre dell’Oroligio’ in St. Mark’s Square is a site to see.  There a few tours that run per day and require advance booking due to the narrowness of the clock tower.  This landmark holds great importance historically and symbolically in Venice. The clock is adorned with astrological signs and beautifully crafted details of the moon’s phases.  The clock tower’s importance was also rooted in Venice’s Maritime empire centuries ago. Seafarer’s would rely on the clock to determine the best time to go to sea. The design also pays tribute to powers of government and religious, something that is quite representative of Venice. Don’t miss the chance to see this masterpiece up close and behind the scenes.  The view at the top is not so bad either!
