I thought it was a lovely place to view large paintings. I liked that they provide mirrors so you could view the ceilings without straining your neck (my neck/head would get sore during the 3+ weeks in Italy...too many ceilings!). I especially loved the wood carvings along the walls of the upstairs gallery.

This scuola San Rocco is just one of the most beautiful things I've seen (like "skip the taj mahal, see this!"). I wasn't expecting much, it was on the path from our house to the train station, so we went in. One day to the church San Rocco, across the street, and another time we paid some few Euros and...

the Suola di San Rocco is a popular stop and once you step inside you'll see why. The ceiling is like no other in Venice and if you are a Venetian art buff, this one is not to be missed. The place is chock a block with Venetian treasures.

We were not really sure if we wanted to pay the entrance fee for this but we ended up doing it. We had a great time sitting and just taking in all the opulence of the paintings on every wall of the second floor grand hall.

We had visited San Rocco many years ago and we wanted mostly to see the building itself. The paintings are not really our taste but they are most impressive as walls and ceilings are completely covered.

I'm not a religious person but it's worth checking out this Escula. The artwork is amazing and it makes you think just how much effort and talent went into these incredible artworks. Tintoretto is a truly incredible artist. When we went it was quiet and its worth sitting down next to the incredible wooden wall carvings and admire the artistry... More

The Scuola Grande di San Rocco contains one of the largest examples of work by Tintoretto and should not be missed, especially the Crucifixion. Tintoretto decorated the entire Scuola over a period of some 20 plus years. Well worth the visit and is close to the church of Santa Maria Gloriosa die Friari where you will find the glorious Assumption... More

This is a spectacular showing of Tintoretto, but most people skip the first floor paintings, which are critically considered the best, and head upstairs for the painted ceiling, which is very hard to view. Spend the most time downstairs, and take in the upstairs more casually.

The splendor of the artwork and ceilings just blows your mind. We were only charged 8 Euros - we must look older than we are :( Normally 10 Euros. Recommended

This is a significant collection of artwork with lavish paintings and remarkable ceilings, called Tintoretto's Sistine Chapel; however, we preferred the church setting and feel to Frari Church over the splashy feel to this museum. It is well worth your time and has serious "wow" factor, but it did not tug at our hearts as the Frari did.
