This small museum is a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit to see the fine painting of Carpaccio and his St. George scenes. I don't think this place is ever crowded. Make sure you see St. Augustine in his Study.

This is a very small scuola. We suggest focusing on the ground floor with the scenes of Saints George, Tryphon and Jerome by Carpaccio. We liked the story-telling aspect of the paintings. Children will like the first floor too. So glad we visited. The scuola...More

A small building with some very interesting paintings depicting the exploits of St. George (the dragon slayer) other paintings by Carpaccio. Not one of Venice's most popular sights, but worth a look if you are in the neighborhood.

This "Scuola" served, and still does serve, the Slavonic community in Venice. On its ground floor, under a fairly low roof and with windows darkened to protect the frescoes, it has one of the most important cycles by the Venetian painter Vittore Carpaccio, renowned for...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime

I do not remember either but I DO remember that I was pleasantly surprised with the entry ticket price. Very good value for money ... a lot to see, both inside and out ... in a lovely environment.
