One Scuola that was not plundered by Napoleon. Art everywhere. Well organized visit. Museum (treasury) is interesting. Later you can visit the church, free entance. Well worth the visit.

The church is quite pretty on the outside but you have to go inside to really appreciate how beautiful it is.

For anyone interested in art, this shrine to Tintoretto is an absolute MUST. Quite stunning - and words cannot describe it. Not many people visit it - but take the ferry from St. Mark's Saure (4.1 or 4.2) to San Tomo and it is just a short walk from there.

This CHURCH (not the scuola) is very very beautiful, even more beautiful since it is free. Free places in Venice are exceedingly rare, so I would DEFINITELY go here. Everything in Venice was incredible. The church was awesome and the area was very colorful. It was located on the way to San Marco's and was convenient. Just to be clear,... More

It is a gorgeous little place. We stumbled upon a concert rehearsal and sat for several minutes watching and listening. No pictures (again), but overall the church is really gorgeous on the inside and a quick peek will do you just fine.

It was rather chilly inside (I visited in the end of February) and I was eager to go back out into the sun, so I merely strolled around the church once.... More

If you are at all interested in the art of Venice, this is a must-see. The huge collection of Tintoretto paintings is probably unrivalled. In the upper hall, it's easy to see how some people are just overwhelmed by it all. The setting is wonderful too. Not to be missed, and easily combined with a visit to the Frari, which... More

If you like architecture, sculpture, wood carving and floor to ceiling painting then come here! There are even mirrors in the great hall so you can see the ceiling art without a bad neck. As we rounded the corner of the stairs we both took a sharp intake of breath (much like in the Palazza Ducale). Tintoretto everywhere!

The church San Rocco is not to be mistaken for the famous Scuola di San Rocco. You'll find the church next to the Scuola and you shoudn't miss it. You'll find paintings by Tintoretto and Sebastiano Ricci there - if I remember well, also by Solimena. Recently the original baroque organ loft (or choir loft?) has been restored and placed... More
