A gem in a city of gems - worth a special trip. I visited in April 2014, and in the upper floor you mirrors are supplied for ease of viewing the stunning ceiling.

One of the important attractions in the San Polo district is the Scuola of St. Rocco (€10 per adult, €8 per student), located next to Chiesa di San Rocco. Opening hours are 9.30-5.30pm. The Scuola of St. Rocco was established at the end of the 15th century in honour of St. Roch, the protector from the plague. However, its greatest... More

This is a truly exceptional church with Tintoretto masterpieces displayed as they should be. Normally, you may see one or two in a gallery. However, in the church there are no less than eight. If this is impressive, you will be amazed by the Great Upper Hall. In my opinion, this is one of the unmissable attractions of Venice. Highly... More

What distinguishes the San Rocco display from almost all others is the fact that the paintings are lit by banks or rows of LED lamps. This imbues them with a luminescence that is of another world. Thus, it is highly probable that we are privileged to see these works in better light than the artists who created them. I have... More

Best crucifixion mural in the world? On this visit I had the awesome experience of listening to a passionate middle school teacher giving a lecture to his students in front of the work. He was virtually dancing in front of the painting as he extolled its virtues.

A nice escape from the busy landmarks of the city. It's quiet and peaceful, plus you're surrounded by some of the most breathtaking paintings in Venice. Showcasing a lot of Tintoretto's masterpieces. They even supply mirrors you can use to look at the paintings on the ceiling, which saves many people from art inflicted neck injuries I'm sure. Highly recommended... More

So we only came to this place because of Trip Advisor reviews and werent disappointed. It is a tiny quiet church without a lot of visitors with increibly beautiful works of art. It seemed as though there was a picture of nearly everything important to the Christian faith.

I got lost in Venice and a local guided me to my hotel and we passed this place. Even though I'd read about it I didn't think we had time as my partner isn't into art like me. My guide insisted it and Basilica dei Frari were the most important in Venice and she was right. Even my partner was... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood. 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 Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
