One of the best museums/exhibits during my recent one month Italy visit. I consider this is a 'must see' for anybody, especially for arts lovers. Unfortunately, they do not all ow photography. As a photographer myself, it was a disappointment. They do sell very nicely done but at a reasonable prices books. Highly recommended.

This building is everything that has been written about it. To avoid neck strain take a resonable sized mirror for viewing the ceiling. There are some mirrors available on site but these are in great demand. Building not easy to find given the plain outside but a good street map will help.

The finest cycle of works by the Venetian 16th century artist, Tintoretto. You can combine your visit with the magnificent Farr church next door.

If you listen to the audio guide you hear why the second floor of this building is referred to as Tintoretto's Sistine Chapel. It is simply magnificent - all done by Tintoretto. I was not expecting the glory and glorious art I found at the Scuola of St. Rocco. What a treasure! On the first floor we are treated to... More

The whole building is given over to Tintoretto and it is a wonderful experience. Sitting upstairs in front of his huge Crucifixion is very special: it's a magical work.

I saw great reviews of this place on my tripadvisor app last month and knew I had to go. I was with my mother (who adores Venice and has been here many times), and even she hadn't heard of it. The downstairs is nothing spectacular, but once you like 2 staircases you enter one of the most stunning rooms in... More

We first came across this Scuola Grande the first time we came to Venice many years ago and return each time we come. The paintings and carvings are monumentally impressive. We love discovering something new in the art each time we come. It is truly humbling to witness the magnificence of this art. If I could only visit one place... More
