Visiting my daughter during her semester abroad, her class visited this beautiful building. The art inside, from the floors, to the sculptures, to the paintings on the walls and ceilings, are captivating, beautiful and meaningful. A nice touch was the mirrors you hold in front...More

The scuola is a beautiful building with interesting history. It’s a bit off the beaten path but I think that makes it even better. Highly recommend.

It definitely is worth a visit. On average you spend 10 Euro an 1h there but get an amazing input. Recommend

San Rocco is extraordinary! A treasure trove of paintings created by Tintoretto at the height of his powers. Fascinating to see the late works on the lower level, produced with the assistance of his workshop (including son, Domenico). But it’s the upper level that astonishes:...More

There are some paintings on the main floor. And you'll be able to watch as two artists restore paintings. Be warned that to truly enjoy it, though, you will want to go upstairs, which will involve traversing two large stairways. The paintings upstairs are GORGEOUS....More

Just one of Tintoretto's artworks would be enough to wow you in any other city, San Rocco is full of them. Go and see.

Tintoretto abounds here in all his glory. The upper floor blew me away. Definitely worth a visit to the Scuola and the church.

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
