That is the title sometimes accorded to the Virgin's Assumption in the neighbouring church of the Frari (500 years old this very weekend) but for me Tintoretto's Crucifixion here in the Scuola takes all the honours. And in both places there is ample room to...More

I would rate this a 5 star stop for all art lovers. The ceiling is amazing. Sit along the sides and just soak in all the beautiful details.

This was a spectacular building full of beautiful Tintorettos, but best of all deserted!!! When St Marks is heaving with people queuing to get a glimpse of the Basilica or Doges Palace, this place is an oasis of calm and quiet.

Even for someone who is not a lover of renaissance painting, this building is breathtaking. Yes, it is filled with Tintorettos, but the building itself, with its grand hall is wonderful and has a wood-paneled wall that is lined with huge lanterns and sculptures. I...More

Worth a visit. I liked the idea of providing mirrors so that you can see the paintings on the ceiling in detail without craning your neck.

Words don't really do it justice. The best recommendation I can give is go and see it for yourself before it disappears beneath the waves. Fabulous.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the

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
