Sacred Venice: the Frari Church and Saint Roque's School
Guided tour at the Frari Church and at Scuola Grande di San Rocco
This is a favourite itinerary for art lovers. This Gothic Church in Venice, authentic coffer full of incredible treasures, will tell you stories about powerful families and competitions among prodigious artists. In fact, it houses artworks by Paolo Veneziano, Bellini and Titian still exhibited where they were originally commissioned. You will meet Titian's wonderful red.
Saint Roque's school is an unfailing meeting with a wonderfully ghostly painter, Jacopo Tintoretto. It is a painted Bible, interpreted according to the Counterreformation demands but in a very personal, electrifying style.
