This is a guilt house featuring the work of the famous Venetian artist Tintoretto, as well as that of his students. The building dates back to 1517 and it took over 20 years to paint the murals which largely depict scenes from the New and Old Testament. A ticket costs 10 euro (including an audio guide), or 8 euro if... More

When you go upstairs into the main room prepare to be overwhelmed by a sight unique in architecture. Don't fall for the spiel re Old Testament and New Testament relationships though, looking up to the ceiling you can see Tinteretto expressing the esoteric knowledge of the Kabbalah via a visual code to share amongst fellow initiates of the Christian cult...

Built in 1517, the museum is a treasure chest of Venetian painting. All works are from Tintoretto or his famous students. The Sala dell'Albergo is stunning. Musuem is attached to the beautiful Church of San Rocco built between 1489-1508 (and rebuilt in 1725).

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

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.
