I took my family to Scuola of St. Rocco and we loved the buildings and artwork by Tintoretto. It really is the Sistine Chapel of Venice. I am surprised more people don't come here. The artwork is amazing and much of it well restored. I expected to spend only a few moments here but ended up spending a couple of... More

Absolutely stunning, we happened upon it by chance. Despite our hesitance to pay the 10 euro admin fee, once in we were amazed by the stunning artwork on the ceilings and the exhibit in the newly renovated upstairs room. Even our ten year old was taken with it and the processional carriage apparently containing a finger!

We saw the church near St Rocco's saints day 16 August and so there was a grand canopy erected leading up to the entrance of the church (handy as it was raining at the time) this was to allow the Doge to visit the church and the custom has continued. The church has some beautiful paintings inside and was on... More

This is a little gem in the hart of Venice. Easy to access to and with stunning painting, the San Rocco deserve 20 min of your time. You will enjoy the ceiling painting and the relative quietness of the place. My recommendation: alternate this place with one of the most crowded place in Venice.

We've had the good fortune to visit Venice twice, and both times we went to Scuola de San Rocco. While we would not describe ourselves as art patrons, we are awed by the works of Tintoretto that cover the walls and ceilings of the large gathering rooms in this building. The artist took his themes from the Bible, depicting stories... More

This is actually like the Sistine Chapel of Rome, it’s just that surrounded by small alleys and floating in Venice.Tintoretto artworks are really magnificent sight not to miss. Wonderful paintings on the walls and ceilings telling biblical story and how their life is before.

The art by Tintoretto & Titian is amazing to behold. The building itself is magnificent and the ceiling paintings are absolutely breathtaking. Don't forget to pick up one of the mirrors in the corner of the hall to enjoy them without straining your neck too much! Definitely worth the visit!

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.
