Wanted to love this place but the sales agent wasn't too friendly and the noise on the 1st floor from workmen (2nd to those from the US) was ridiculous and made enjoying the space and the art close to impossible.

Amazing masterpieces by Tintoretto on the walls and ceilings. Make sure to grab the guide on your way in that tells you what you are looking at in each scene.

This is not a an artist one can easily find in the rest of the world. Here we have dozens of giant works clustered in one place, allowing the viewer to appreciate the depth and strength of his art. While I would appreciate better lighting, and look forward to the day when there is appropriate funding for additional restoration, I... More

Interior upstairs is magnificent, rest nothing great, may be personal taste is a reason but was not fully satisfied after visiting this place, it fails to charm you, looks very plastic

Stunning art and the time to study it. A very reasonable entry price and Tintoretto and every glance. Rewarding and restful without the crush of some of the other venues.

The ceiling by Tintoretto. is absolutely amazing. Spend the timeandtnheeurosto see it. Take your time because it involves 20+ biblical pictures. It's right around the corner from IFriari also worth the visit. So kill 2 birds with one stone and spend 1/2 a day visiting both.

Was lovely site with beautiful Tintoretto paintings - a little sore on your neck but worth a stop. Also really liked the cool, quiet, uncrowded aspect of the stop.

Like most things in Venice, we just happened to be walking past this attraction and popped in. Like most things in Venice, we loved it.

Loved this place. Downstairs is good, upstairs is magnificent- I think better than the Sistine Chapel. A very beautiful and worthwhile visit. My teenager also really liked this, even though she did not have the same preference that I did for Tintoretto before. We agreed that this was a major highlight of our almost 4 weeks in Europe. I don't... More

The interior upstairs is a breathtaking artistic composition. The scope of the massive works by Tintoretto seem impossible to achieve. One could spend a half hour here or 3 hours. The paintings captivate the eye and imagination. But look down/ around and see the magnificent woodcarving,stonework and architecture. Condition of most things is good but lighting is intentionally and unfortunately... 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.
