Audioguide Saint Mark's Bell Tower

Saint Mark's Bell Tower is nearly 100 meters (323 feet) high and topped with a unique weathervane – the gilded statue of the Archangel Gabriel whose large wings are pushed by the winds. The Venetians say that when the angel is facing the Basilica it is a sign that there will be high water (acqua alta).

The original tower collapsed suddenly in 1902, leaving the city without its dearest symbol. The Venetians decided to rebuild it immediately, "as it was and where it was", completing the work in 1912.

The Bell Tower of San Marco is one of the very best spots to see Venice from above. On a clear day you will see the many islands of the lagoon, and even the Alps in the distance!
