It was the last stop on our art history trip and what a finale ! The paintings that cover the walls and ceilings are just stunning as is the carving . Well worth a visit

This was one of the last visits of our trip and was amazing. The children went free (age 9,7,6) and 10 Eur each for myself and my wife. This is one of the most incredible buildings I've visited and I would have paid twice the amount to see it. Don't forget to go upstairs to the relic room!

I'm not a great art lover, but I loved this place. Apart from the paintings talked about a lot on these reviews, do take a moment to admire the wonderful wood carvings on the first floor and make sure to go up the stairs to see the 'treasures'.

I cannot recommend a visit here too highly. The entrance fee is really money well spent. The paintings are magnificent, and climbing the stairs to the first floor you find yourself immersed in murals larger than life. The ceiling frescos can be viewed using mirrors provided-taking the strain from your neck-and in such detail. The carving in the Great Upper... More

Not on everyone's must see list, this building is fantastic with dramatic paintings and wooden panelling. Tucked behind the 'Frari', I recommend you go and have a look

This was one of the highlights of our visit. Absolutely beautiful inside and must at E10 for entry - make sure you take time out to enjoy the experience here.

Amazing artwork, even if you're no art critic. The audio tour is free with your admission price so it's worth taking, although we did find it a bit confusing and had to pause and restart sections of it at times.

For anyone remotely interested in Art, this is an absolute must. Take the vaporetto from St. Marks to San Tomo, and it lies just a short walk away. The scuelo is in two floors, which are essentially a shrine to Tintoretto. The walls of the lower floor are lined with huge - nay, massive, - paintings by Tintoretto and in... More

We spent a good 2 hours in this building looking at the ceilings and frescoes which were absolutely mind-blowing. They were beautiful and one almost felt like they were breathing. Highly recommended despite the admission fee.
