Amazing art with a fascinating story behind Tintoretto's paintings in the Scuola.Though the paintings are of familiar religious events,their interpretation is strikingly unusual.

Very good audio guide giving you interesting info about each painting but I wish we'd spotted the mirrors (to look up the high ceiling paintings) before getting neck ache!

What can I say? The artwork here is just spectacular. I especially enjoyed thesecond floor wood panelling and the gorgeous lanterns which showed off the paintings beautifully.Bought a great little book in the downstairs bookstore for just 6 euros: Saint Roch, Venice and the Plague. Attended a concert at the San Rocco Church right next door afterwards, and read this... More

The audio guide was superb in describing the context, the various pieces and how they fit together. Use the mirrors offered for free to view the ceiling pieces more comfortably. We experienced no crowds (rare in Venice) and nobody pressuring us to move through the site. An impactful experience that ranked with the Doge's Palace and Basilica in a distinct... More

Laden with Tintoeretto's, for his fans, this is a must. Even if you aren't a fan, the amazing setting is worth a visit - fascinating for those who aren't only art lovers. As the church next door is also worth a visit, it's a good trip in combo - took us about an hour and a half to visit both.... More

The Scuola Grande di San Rocco is known for its numerous Tintoretto paintings. It was founded in the 15th century as a confraternity to assist the citizens in time of plague.

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.
