  • Of course, if one thinks of the Great School of St. Rocco, all the others disappear... But that was a unique case, so let's enjoy the other "small" big schools! Here, inside the City Civil Hospital, on the first floor there is the great hall, with the paintings of Domenico Robusti (son of...) depicting the legend of St. Mark and why he became Patron of Venice after St. Theodore, linked to the Byzantine domination ... In addition to the beautiful canvases, at the center there is an exhibition of tomes and instruments of the history of Medicine over the centuries

  • Interesting place if in medical profession or love history not a place to take kids
  • We didn’t go into the museum but instead went to the gardens of the hospital where there are loads of cats living wild there. Super fun to walk around gorgeous gardens with wild cats!
  • This is actually Venezia's hospital. You can walk in and check out the museum with the old medical equipment and the gardens inside, full of cats!
  • A must to. Its cheap for Venice standards (5 euros). Many frescoes by Tintoretto. Important historical landmark. Also check the churchs of St. Lazar (free) in the back and St. Giovanni e Paolo (4 euros i think) at the side of it.
  • Impeccably curated small museum collection at the upper level to the right of the beautiful hospital’s entrance! Only 3€ for students. The exhibits comprising old pages of anatomical/medical books and equipment were wonderfully laid out in a magnificent room. There aren’t English explanations besides most of the exhibits except for the nobles’ book collection but they’re all visually intriguing enough that i spent a good 45 minutes there despite it’s compact size.
