Often called "Tintoretto's Sistine Chapel," the Scuola Grande di San Rocco is next to Frari Church. The meeting hall is covered in 50 gigantic paintings that are a sight to behold. The audio guide is worth it (please note: there is a charge for the...More

One of the few Scuola still in operation. This building is a work of art. It can be toured on ones own but having a guide adds so much to the experience.

I love to see art in situ and this place is brimming with Tintoretto's work. It is the best place in Venice you've never heard of.

Worth the 3 euros to get the head phones. The crowds are not even that bad right now and they are bad around St. Mark's Square. We were looking for something beautiful but not as overrun with people. This is the place. The ceilings by...More

Place is simply the best Mannerist (late High Renaissance) interior in Venice. Duke's palace has some bigger rooms but this place is unique. Take some time to explore paintings and the meaning of them. Yes, you will need to pay an entrance fee and walk...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
