Torre dell'Orologio, Venice

4.6
#24 of 685 in Things to do in Venice
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.
