Venice Art Tour
Not just satisfied to expound the glory of Venice through art, confraternities were also essential in performing charitable works, especially in times of plague. The Scuola of San Giovanni Evangelist, the second oldest confraternity in Venice, provides an architectural contrast to that of San Rocco, and one can still view a plaque describing the plague of 1348.
Will you pre-purchase tickets for the venues visited on the tour?
Advanced tickets are not available at the venues we visit during the tour. Wait time to enter is not long at either venue.
Is this tour good for kids?
If you have children under 13, you may consider our specially designed family focused, interactive tour on art in Venice, our Venice Art Tour for Kids.
Is this tour suitable for visitors with mobility issues?
This is not a walking intensive tour as the two venues are very near each other. The Scuola of San Rocco is less accessible for wheelchair users (there is no elevator, but there is a wheelchair lift). The Basilica dei Frari is accessible for wheelchair users. If you have mobility issues, please contact us and we can design a tour which best suits your mobility.
