After visiting many churches and museum sites for us this was just a little too 'dark' and heavy with Venetian paintings. Great architecture and if you are close to the Church of Frari you may want to scroll through but we found the 10 euro charge a little steep compared to other sites.

Some museums and churches can be appreciated with a quick visit to see the highlights, but not the guild hall (scuola) San Rocco. It is best seen by spending the time to listen to the free audioguide to learn the history and mission of the fraternity which built and used this amazing three story building. One member of the guild... More

It is hard to find, as is the rest of venetian sites. However, when you do find it, you will be amazedly the work of art inside by a lesser known but equally great Italian painter, Jacopo Tintoretto.

I went to this place due to trip advisor rating and was not disappointed. It costs 10€ to get in but it is more than worth the price. Use the free audio guide as it tells the deep history of the place. The paintings would fit in the great museums of the world but hang in their original locations. Tintoretto... More

Don't pass this by. Located near the San Toma vaporetto stop and near the Campo dei Frari. From the incredible multicolor marble floors, to the Tintorettos, the wood carving and the gilded ceilings, your mouth will be agape as you wander through San Rocco. It must be seen. It's a fun area too with nice and inexpensive shops and restaurants.

The sheer magnificence of the ceiling here is breathtaking . Its a showcase of Venice's finest artists of the time of Tintoretto. Its heavy and very ornate and been there for several hundred years , not to be missed.

I visited this place based upon the review read in here and I glad I did it. This is one of the highlight of our Venice trip. Lots of amazing art pieces that I think I could spend the whole day just looking at them. (Unfortunately my schedule was packed so I ended up spending only 2 hrs. inside) Also,... More

This is a beautiful and easy to overlook site. It has incredible works especially in the Great Hall on the upper floor. I would recommend allowing at least 45 minutes and better an hour just to see this one room. Take advantage of the mirrors they provide to view the ceiling works. I think it would be useful to read... More

I heard that the upper floor is called Tintoretto's "Sixtine Chapel". It is very, very impressive. Use the large mirrors provided for the guests to see the ceiling. Do not miss it!

Simply amazing! Hard to convey how astounding this place is. It's essentially two large halls and an anti-room, crammed with phenomenal artworks. A definite must-see, and not too expensive in comparison to some places in Venice. My only issue is that so much of the art is in the dark and almost impossible to see. The paintings are clearly king... More
