Almost all paintings were done by Tintoretto, beautiful to look at, they also provide mirrors to look at the ceiling. You can take all the time you need to have a good look.
This one may not stand among the most popular attractions such as San Marco Cathedral, Palazzo Ducale, etc. But if you are interested in Classic Art and sculpture, this is a place to visit. You will remember the monument for Antonio Canova's Tomb for long, as well as many other master works there.
Billed as Tintoretto's Sistine Chapel, the Scuola does not disappoint. Simply a gorgeous place that you will not expect upon entering on the ground floor. But one floor up is one of the most amazing displays of art you will ever see. I believe the cost to get in was 10 euro and at first we were not sure we... More
Top spot in Venice and a must for those interested in high Renaissance art. Tintaretto spent 27 years decorating this hall of the St Roch confraternity. Spend some time looking at the Crucifixion it is superb. Nearby chruch of San Rocce also worth it with another half a dozen masterpieces.
This was my third visit to Venice, and I had not heard of Scuola Grande di San Rocco until I was researching new places to go. This was an amazing find! It is hard to physically find this place but it is SO worth it. The paintings are gorgeous and the setting (the building) is magnificent.This was my favorite place... More
The Scuola Grande di San Rocco really is one of those places which are not to be missed. The many paintings by Tintoretto are inspiring and works of true genius. The ceiling particularly repays close examination and the Scuola helpfully provides large mirrors for visitors to spare cricked necks. Other painting too by the master leave the visitor breathless with... More
The ground floor seen through the glazed entrance doesn't prepare you for the first floor - which is lined with exquisite and richly-coloured Tintoretto paintings. I wasn't offered an audio guide, or a paper guide (the excellent bookshop on the way out stocks a range of guides, as well as other books and gifts ... after which there is a... More
I was not a particular fan of Tintoretto but the day was rainy and lent itself to indoor activities rather than wandering the wonderful alleys and admiring the architecture of Venice. Entry into the Scuola is not inexpensive and the ground floor from the ticket booth is huge but empty and one can not really see more than two of... More
This building was build in the late 15th century and houses a terrific and beautiful collection of Tintoretto and others and is well worth the effort to find it. The Audio guide is excellent but a little difficult to follow the sequence - make sure you get a map of the building to assist but it is well worth the... More
There is a spectacular museum which we have visited twice. The Church of San Rocco is adjacent and free. There is a charge for this place but it is a must see. Use the audio guide (even if it is a bit confusing). You won't be disappointed. It is all about Tintoretto and it is housed in a beautiful building.... More
