Scuola Grande di San Rocco

Recommendation by Lemi

The enchanting thing about Venice is how grand places hide in plain sight. The Scuola Grande di San Rocco, a medical museum, conceals itself in a little square. Its marble facade gleams in the sunlight, as it shines warmly inside. An intricate ceiling, gilded in gold, hovers over glass cases of priceless medical artifacts. Renaissance paintings also cover the walls. Its opulence matches many of those at Piazza San Marco, but at a smaller scale. Take your sweet time capturing the various halls of this museum and hospital. It’s not every day that you get to see places like this in real life!
