The Campanile Tower at The Venetian
Perhaps the most iconic of all the landmarks of The Venetian Las Vegas, the Campanile Tower has a long and glorious history. One of the most famous events to take place in the Tower was Galileo demonstrating his new invention, a telescope, to the Doge of Venice.
The first construction of the Campanile Tower began in the ninth century. It was primarily used as a lighthouse for the docks near the Piazzetta. The Campanile Tower was finally completed in the 12th century, at which time the logetta was added to the base of the structure.
Throughout the intervening centuries, the Campanile Tower was rebuilt several times due to earthquakes or other disasters. In 1912, the Tower underwent its last reconstruction. This is the final iteration that has been etched into modern history and the version that was recreated here at The Venetian.
