The Scuola Grande di San Rocco is a lay confraternity founded in 1478. The popularity of the cult of St. Roch, whose remains had been in the possession of the brotherhood since 1485, contributed to the latter’s rapid expansion to the extent of it...more

A marvellous collection of massive Tintoretto paintings, including his huge Crucifixion scene. The building is a jewel of Venice.

It starts in the ground floor which looks a bit simple but nevertheless there are amazing large paintings of Tintoretto. After that you will climb the stairs with paintings about the pest in Venice to the breath taking meeting hall with the painting cycle of...More

I was in Venice 23 years ago and this place stuck in my mind as exquisite. Tintoretto's Sistine Chapel. You pick up a mirror by the far wall upstairs and it reflects and magnifies the wondeful ceiling. Everything about it is stunning, from the floor...More

For €10 each I was expecting more than essentially one room. It is a stunning room however with Tintoretto artworks. Some of it is being renovated so there’s probably more to it normally. After Doges palace it’s a bit disappointing though.

Another "secret" place to visit, compared to San Marco etc. If you want to get a deeper understanding of Venice' history, come and visit this place. As a "school" of former Venezian craftsmen, the welth and importance of the city gets even more impressive. Bring...More

This building is not on the usual trail but is a real treat. Uncrowded and able to see the building and its priceless paintings in peace and tranquillity is rare in Venice. The floors are as beautiful as the ceilings. However, there are a great...More

I went here to examine Tintoretto's Crucifixion as I know John Singer Sargent's 'Gassed' was influenced by it. But there is so much more! Surprisingly given the plethora of Tintoretto's, Tiepolo's and other work, my favourite stuff were the woodcarvings on the second floor. Brilliant....More

Apart from his paintings (the most impressive being the crucifixion on Calvary) there are also some amazing wood carvings on the benches on the first floor, the piano nobile. Use the mirrors to appreciate the ceiling paintings (also on the first floor). Sadly we couldn't...More

We visited the week after the "beast from the East" hit Europe. The building is not heated and was colder than its surroundings. We had to terminate our visit because we were too cold to stay any longer. Nevertheless beautiful and unmissable

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
