  • On the side of the Basilica of Saints John and Paul, deserves a peaceful visit from the façade. Gorgeous Salon land punctuated by ten columns. From here you go upstairs, where you pay a ticket five euros. We are in a beautiful living room with coffered wooden ceiling and bottom right two works by Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto, transportation of San Marco on the ship and the ship's Arrival in Venice, both of 1586. Between these two works, in the Centre of the wall Christ in glory with Saints mark, Peter and Paul by Jacopo Palma the younger of 1614. Beautiful and of great interest the exhibition of books and tools owned by the library of the hospital. Don't miss the adjacent room, now the hospital's Library with coffered ceiling blue and gold and decorated with beautiful facsimiles shows you can browse.

  • The Scuola Grande di San Marco was a real surprise for us. If you go through the entrance in the Ospedale civile, leads immediately to the right a staircase to the first floor, in the Museo di Anatomia Patológica, a great designed exhibition of medical books, instruments, and drawings await the visitors (admission €5). Praise is the designers, who have provided the great Hall of the former brotherhood with showcases and many mirrors, so that the remaining paintings, but especially the gilded coffered ceiling comes to the fore. For us the most interesting wars however issuing facsimile books in the next room. It may be the valuable works (such as the Libro d' Ore del Perugino and the Libro d' Ore di Lorenzo de' Medici) can durchbättern and now also in the hand.

  • Booked guided tour at the last minute. Great willingness on the part of the Secretariat of the school. The visit to Tintoretto's masterpieces conducted by a brother really competent was more than interesting. Thank you to Mr. G. that explained in detail paintings wonderful and unforgettable. Even the teenage boys were conquered by the language simple and fun.

  • Great museum of medicine. 4 Tintorettos, one good. Other paintings of interest. Great interior. Must to see place.
  • Beautiful building but according to my personal rule I don't get in of the places where visitors are not allowed to take non-commercial photo.
  • A stunning facade, especially considering the actual function of the building, which is a hospital! On the first floor you can find some paintings of Tiepolo and other local artists, a fantastic and richly decorated ceiling and a museum with medical instruments and some of the history of the hospital.
  • Really nice building. Great marble work on the outside. It is now a hospital and a museum.
  • Impresso cathedral from outside
