I have always found the art in Florence to be more impressive than Venice. I liked the Scuolo Grande but it was not my most favorite building ever.. The paintings were impressive and it certainly does not take you long to see it so why not.

Really amazing paintings and the history behind them is well worth the extra money you have to pay for the audio-guide.

Do not expect a Grand Auditorium, it is a hall with raised stage. A really good price for a very enjoyable evening by singers and musicians who put their all into delevering a memorable performance. My only complaint was it had to end! Review is based on the eveing of Baroue and Opera programme.

Titian, Tintoretto?? What more can you ask? My husband and. I traveled to Venice in June and enjoyed our tour at the Scuola. The history of the group who founded it is fascinating.

Thanks to my fellow Trip Advisors for calling attention to this site. Walking up to the second floor just leaves you in awe. Unless you are there to study the art, it does not take very long to look around.

Well, went in, it's a nice place, I liked the architecture of the place and the art, but I still don't know what they do or what the organisation is about. So, I'll consider it a misteryous organisation from ages past. Which made the visit even more enjoyable :)

Not to be missed. I make sure that I visit this collection of large Tintoretto works very time I'm here. The sense of drama in all the works is quite amazing and exciting. I love the realistic reaction of the Virgin Mary when the Archangel appears like a rocket to announce that she is about to have a baby!
