Wonderful building with stunning view. Unfortunately we had to wait for more than 30 minutes because of the private tour. Nobody told us that we cannot go in until somebody called the guy from the entrance and asked him. We had to stay in the rain for 15 minutes and then wait another 30 minutes. But it was amazing at the end.

Monument superbe et très belle vue!! Attention par contre l’endroit où l’on doit retirer les billets a changé d’adresse . À présent c’est toujours Buncitoro Viaggi, Campo San Luca, mais c’est au premier étage du 4267 A et non plus au 4267 C. Vu le temps que l’on a perdu à chercher le fameux magasin je préfère transmettre l’info!

With a coupon issued by getyourguide you have to go to a travel agency where, after queuing, you receive the reservation which is converted into a ticket (after queuing) at the ticket office of the Palazzo Cantarini del Bovolo. The tower, easy to access even for children, offers a breathtaking view of Venice!
