Tintoretto at his best

What a marvelous place to visit. Entrance tickets are not cheap (10 Euro per person) but in return you get around a 100 masterworks of painting...

We visited the Scuola Grande di San Rocco late one afternoon and had the pleasure of enjoying the building and its art with very few other visitors. The cost of €10 appears to put some off but the paintings on display in their original setting are well worth seeing. The ceiling of the Upper Great Hall is massively impressive and... More

Wow! There are little mirrows provided on a table at the left end side. It makes watching the painting less stressful for your head and neck. Audioguides (you hae to pay) are available at the cashier. If you are no such much in art, the Impression of this bulding you get are worth a visit just to imagine how Venice... More

A magnificent building, huge interior spaces, very impressively appointed with marble, gilding, carved wood and mosaics. One of the great displays of Tintoretto's work in Venice, on a par with his work in the Doge's palace. Fabulous Crucifixion. Also, try to get to the top of the stairs and see the treasury.

Came upon this amazing church and school by accident at opening. Well worth a visit. Stunning baroque architecture but more importantly the Tintoretto ceilings in the upper hall. Much better and far less crowded than other more popular and "important" sights.

We went on a whim on our last morning in the city and I am so glad we did. This exraordinary building is a visual feast everywhere you look, from the Tintoretto paintings on the walls and ceilings, the extraordinary wood carings around the walls, the moulded and gilded ceilings themselves and the marble terrazzo floors. I wish we had... More

This was a real highlight of our trip to Venice. I had never heard of it but due to other reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to go. I don't know anything about Tinteretto or his artwork but I loved this building. It is very impressive. Although the €10 entry seems like a lot, compared to many other places we have... More

Don't just peek in the door and say okay I saw it. Go inside and pay the admission fee so you really can see it all. Don't miss the upstairs!

Scuola grande di San Rocco is a real must to visit ! We visited many years ago and always return when in Venice ! Tintoretto at his best! There is now an entrance fee of approx 10 euros but so worth it. No queues which is a surprise -- maybe a little out of the way for the "cruisers etc"... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
