Clock Tower in Saint Mark’s Square

    400 600 Venezia Autentica | Feel like a local in Venice

    The Clock Tower, which was built from 1496 to 1499, is located in a strategical position allowing it to be seen from the water and underlying once more the importance of the seas to the city of Venice.

    In 1857, 2 wheels were installed to give a digital display of the time: on the left, roman numbers for the hours; on the right, Arab numbers for the minutes.
