Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista di Venezia, Venice

4.7
Founded in the 13th century, Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista di Venezia 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.

  • One of the most beautiful views of Venice and little known; worth a visit never early for so much magnificence, inter alia at no cost. Very important is preventing many burros visiting Venice from damaging the place with so much idiotic, as indelible. The artistic and monumental heritage belongs to all and must not be damaged in any way.

  • Terrible experience unlike any other warship place. The person who's in charge of opening the place did everything to make us feel unwelcome except telling it to our face! We are Jewish and Israelis and weren't allowed to get into the place on Friday's evening while service was about to start unless we commit to stay for all of it (one hour!) . We asked to, a least, take a look at the synagogue after made all the way over there and refused! We were deeply offended as NOT being able, as Jews, to get into our place of warship on the Sabbath! Don't bother to go there because the most important thing is missing there - the soul!
  • Grat arhitecture. Hidden pearl.
  • Came here to see a fantastic orchestra play. Beautiful church.
  • Go around to see the old university gate
  • A great little visit, especially the magnificent ceiling on the first floor, breathtaking is an understatement.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
