Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista, Venice

4.6
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.
