I loved the architecture and art, very conveniently located close to Casa Peron across from L DaVinci museum and another church

It's all about the second floor & most people miss this because they peek in and see the first floor and don't want to pay the entrance fee based on what they see. The first floor is good too but it's an amazing second floor - one that I have seen twice & happy to pay the entrance fee to... More

Just go! This was not a crowded place, it should have been for the masterpieces on the ceiling. There are chairs lining the main gallery so one can sit and enjoy the beauty of this place.

This is good for art lovers. Works by several artists, but mainly Tintoretto. Italian Artists really worked hard to painting ceilings. Much (not all) of Tintoretto's work is on the ceiling. A bit hard on the neck (in great hall). Maybe bring a travel neck pillow.

If this place were located, say, in the USA, it would be a main attraction. Since it is in Venice Italy, it is not as well-known. That is an advantage because it was not crowded at all, unlike many places in Venice. If you need a place that has gorgeous art and is not overcrowded with tourists, make the time... More

If you enjoy seeing beautiful art in a relaxed, authentic environment, you must visit San Rocco. The description of San Rocco as "Tinteretto's Sistine Chapel" gives you a good idea of what you're in for. The artwork is phenomenal! There is a piece of the artwork that is not faded, so you can see what the paintings looked like back... More

If you are at all interested in art, and even if you are not, then you must make a point of visiting this Scuola which is entirely covered in paintings by Tintoretto. Takes at least an hour to go round. It is recommended that you start in the Sala dell' Albergo - a smaller room just off the main hall... More

You must go there! You begin with the Goundfloor Hall.There's no painter likeTintoretto with his anamorphosis and you can even see paintings from others. The grandiose Upper Hall has really outstanding paintings on the walls and ceiling. We can admire every painting on the ceiling with the help of a mirror.
