Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista, Venice

(4.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Founded in the 13th century, Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista once contained artworks by Tintoretto, Bastiani, Bellini, and Carpaccio. One of the city's oldest "scuole," institutions that served as patrons of the arts, the building now serves as an elegant and historic space for special events, like concerts and weddings. Check the website for events held there during your visit, or stop by on your tour of Venice to take a few photos and admire medieval architecture. Across the street, a deconsecrated church still holds one of Tintoretto's works, signed and dated in 1626.

  • Certainly less spectacular and less prestigious than the Scuola Grande di San Rocco of S. Giovanni Evangelista really deserves a visit. Located in a quiet part of S. Crocce at short distance from the famous Church of the Frari it is not open every day because the Hall is often used for conferences, with the entry ticket (8 justified euros) we also visit the charming church located just across the street. Recognizable by its large marble carved gate that marks the Court, it has above all a beautiful and large room on the 1st floor adorned on the walls and ceiling of large canvases and mural which several of Tintoretto. Rather go in the morning because during the days of conferences the visit is not possible in the afternoon

  • Ticket costs 8 euros, and includes visits to both the Palace and the Church of Saint John the Evangelist. Very Chamber Church was built in 970, with stunning authority. In the Palace is particularly impressive front hall with his paintings. Recommend to visit. Be sure to check the hours of operation at the official website skuoly-it is often closed for conferences or concerts!
