As well as seeing Venice from the canals, you can also see Venice from the Sky if you wish. The tallest building in Venice is the Campanile which stands at nearly 100 meters high. The building was built originally back between 888 and 912, and eventually collapsed in 1902. The incredibly old building was missed, however, and later on the building was rebuilt exactly the way it was previously, and where it was originally too. Now that it stands again, it is an incredibly popular attraction for tourists and pride of the locals.
You can travel up to the building and its surrounding area via a lift, however, back in 1451, the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III rode his horse all the way to the top. The view is incredible, and worth the trop. You can even see the whole lagoon if it’s a clear enough day. So be sure to take a look!
