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.

Art, art, art--that is the only way to describe this beautiful place. It was good enough for a Woody Allen movie and he always strives for authenticity and little-known jewels. Be sure to visit.

Large showcase of Tintoretto paintings, the downstairs house some huge examples of his work but for me the upper floor is simply stunning. The upstairs has an ornate guilder ceiling and they actually supply trays with mirrors which saves you getting neck ache and helps you really study the detail. You will also find some amazing wooden carvings by Francesco... More

This place is beautiful. The ceiling paintings are second to none. What really surprised me was the quality of the wood carvings. Tintoretto really created a masterpiece with that ceiling. They have mirrors so that you can enjoy gazing at the ceiling artwork without hurting your neck!! The only negative is that they do not allow photos

If you love Italian painters, a must see is this building with its fabulous paintings by Tintoretto in the halls. Next door is Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari which is also a must see, particularly the pyramid tomb of Canova and monument to Titian.

San Rocco is a grand confraternity. It was constructed between 1517 and 1549 and contains wonderful canvasses by Tintoretto. Wonderful to visit.
