This Scuola had so much going for it. The ornate wood-paneled room with hand-carved figures was amazing, as well as the beautiful staircases and ceilings. Another lovely scuola in Venice; what a great place for a meeting!

Several reviewers complained about the music. No one could possibly complain about the art. Quite simply, the art work is stunning, from the ornate ceilings in the stairs, to the wonderful ceilings on the second floor, this place is spectacular. We stopped by while wandering...More

The concert here was just terrible. The musicians are certainly not from big opera houses as was advertised but can barely handle their instruments. This was not just bad, it was a deliberate scam. The whole thing is not in any way connected to the...More

This is not a complaint, but I can't understand why this place isn't packed. We had the place to ourselves, and it was spectacular. I suppose if the monochrome work on the ground floor, stunning stairwells, breathtaking marble floors, and soaring Tiepolo upstairs aren't your...More

At the far end of Campo Santa Margherita, this Scuola is worth a visit for the stunning Tiepolo ceiling on the second floor. Also a pretty chapel on the ground floor and beautifully decorated staircase.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob
