One of the most beautiful rooms in all of Europe. The visit doesn't take long, but well worth it. Be sure to use one of the available mirrors to view the ceiling. your neck will thank you for it.

The most visitors come here to see Tintoretto painting - but walk to the upper floor and discover exquisite wooden panels with allegorical figures carved by Francesco Pianta (c1632-92). They do not allow to take pictures there, but google the images to get an idea - and climb stairs!

This is a must for any Venice visitor. Cant miss those masterpieces of art. Wonderful experience even if you are normally not into that kind of paintings.

£10 is too much for this place. £4 is worth it!Go rather to Ducale 'Doge Palace' and you will see the same but much more and better

It was worth it to get the audio guide here. There was so much information that was very helpful and made the visit that much better. There are nice clean free restrooms just before exiting which is great in this city. Well worth a visit

A scuola is actually a guild, not a school. Scuola Grande de San Rocco was the artists' guild headquarters. The walls and ceilings are covered in paintings by Tiepolo. These are rather sombre, with lots of dark colours. We did not find them very inspiring. There are more in the church next door, the church of San Rocco. There is... More

Showing original works by Tintoretto. And they provide mirrors so you can look at the art on the ceiling without falling over!

The guide books will tell you what is on offer, but they do not stress the number of steps you must climb! Well worth visiting, note the wood carving! and ensure you use one of the mirrors provided. The china however was rather disappointing.
