We first came across this Scuola Grande the first time we came to Venice many years ago and return each time we come. The paintings and carvings are monumentally impressive. We love discovering something new in the art each time we come. It is truly humbling to witness the magnificence of this art. If I could only visit one place... More

The museum is dedicated to the renaissance artist Tintoretto whose works all over the place. Not only they have his paintings but the collections expand to his wood works as well. The entire exhibits are divided into two levels and it’s the upper level that is the masterpiece. The gilded beauty that is exhibited here will make you gasp in... More

What a tremendous collection of the masterpieces of Tintoretto. To truly experience it, one must spend a ton of time in the upstairs hall, examining both the works on the ceiling and the walls. A must when you're in Venice!

Jaw dropping art by Tintoretto. It is the best interior art I have ever seen. Once you go to the first floor of the Scuola, you are bound to be amazed by the artistic achievement. Use the mirrors which are kept around the hall to study the paintings. It helps a lot. Photography is not allowed in the Scuola, and... More

Even for folks who are not Tintoretto fans, this place is a must. The hall on the ground level is rather austere and gives little hint of what awaits upstairs. Words cannot describe the opulence of the Upper Hall - the pictures do a better job. What an amazing artistic achievement. Be sure to get the audio guide - it... More

Do not really get wound up by most paintings etc but the whole package from wood carvings to relics to porcelain takes a lot of beating

There are so many beautiful interiors in venice but this is my favorite. Take time to do audio guide and study the ceilings using the mirrors to save your neck.

Rick Steves had an article on San Rocco so we decided to check it out. It was amazing, and best of all, it was not crowded like most of the other main attractions in Venice. Located near the San Toma Vaporetti (water taxi) stop. Amazing art work done by Tintoretto who spent most of his life working in the Scuola... More
