There are some paintings on the main floor. And you'll be able to watch as two artists restore paintings. Be warned that to truly enjoy it, though, you will want to go upstairs, which will involve traversing two large stairways. The paintings upstairs are GORGEOUS....More

Just one of Tintoretto's artworks would be enough to wow you in any other city, San Rocco is full of them. Go and see.

Tintoretto abounds here in all his glory. The upper floor blew me away. Definitely worth a visit to the Scuola and the church.

I wasn't prepared for the beauty of Tintoretto's masterpiece of over 60 paintings in their original setting of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. The paintings line the walls, ceilings, along the staircases, and represent scenes from the old and new testaments. There are also...More

This isn't just a building that houses Tintoretto's work. All the wall and ceilings are filled with his finest work. Most can never be seen elsewhere, since they are painted on the ceiling and walls. In effect, you walk into a large two story building...More

This is probably one of the must-see sights in Venice. The pictures downstairs are impressive but go upstairs to see the wonderful ceiling. There are regular concerts here and worth checking if there is one on during your stay. There is a shop and also...More

This must have the greatest concentration of Tintoretto paintings I have seen. It demonstrates what is so special about Venice. You get to see art installed where it was meant to be viewed and not exported to a museum. It's not as well known as...More

A real must for art lovers. Wonderful Tintorettos really overwhelming. Take your time. 10 euros each. They have seats in the room with The Crucifixion painting which is very helpful.

We had no idea how incredible this would be! This was the most impressive art in Venice. We enjoyed this more than St. Mark's and there was no line. Also go next door to Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari for more art.

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
