It's worth meandering through the lane ways of Venice to visit the Scoula Grande. Recommend the self tour with audio. The art is magnificent and so well preserved and presented. Recommend. Aprrox 10Euro per person.

In my opinion, this is not a top site in Venice. Perhaps I'm just not a Tintoretto groupie, but I didn't find the place to be that special. I had a lot of time to visit the sites on my long trip to Venice, and this was probably the least impressive of the places on my long list of stops.... More

Very stunning interiors, but we were reprimanded a few times for "posing" in the pictures which is not allowed. I guess it means only normal hands-on-the-sides dull expression pictures are allowed. Selfies also not allowed. Still don't really get it but this little man just kept following us and reminding us, so I kind of gave up the pictures at... More

Tintoretto was one of Venice's greatest painters, and Scuola di San Rocca is an opportunity to learn a LOT about him. When you walk through Doge's palace you'll see similar (and bigger) rooms as you see in the Scuola, but there's just not enough time to learn about all the iconography and background behind what you're looking at. The Scuola... More

In Venice, you'll have the choice of which buildings you would like to visit since there is art everywhere! To my opinion, the Scuola Grande di San Rocco is very nice and there is a lot to see, but it is a bit overpriced. There are better places.

Fairly small and not that much to see for the price especially. The art it does have is impressive however. Might be worth a quick look if you are in the area but wouldn't make the walk just to see it.

The Scuola di San Rocco ("Confraternity of St. Roch", protector against plague, which had struck Venice in that century) was established in 1478 a group of wealthy Venetian citizen, next to the church of San Rocco, from which it takes its name. It is located in San... 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.
