The St. Mark's bell tower, along with its Basilica, is one of Venice's most iconic symbols. Nearly 100 meters high, it is one of the highest bell towers in Italy. Its construction began in the 9th century, while a disastrous collapse in the spring of 1902 lead to its reconstruction. At the location of St. Mark's bell tower is the annually celebrated 18th century carnival tradition of the "Angel's Flight", reintroduced to Venice in 2001.
