I stumbled across this one in a side street, it was very dark. Full of George and the Dragon paintings, but worth a look.

Hidden next to a bridge on a side canal, the building of the Scuola houses some of the most beautiful paintings of the Renaissance painter Vittore Carpaccio (around 14651525/26 ) Three paintings he dedicated to the Saint George. The first from left shows him how...More

This is real place for real Venice and real visitors. You can find a scuola without big groups of tourists and with real old esprit. Furniture and paintings lead you to old times and legends about Saint George and less known Saint Trifun. Reserve at...More

This is a much smaller establishment than the other ridiculously opulent fraternities of Venice. It served the small Slavic population of Venice. The place has a great intimate feel to it, the artwork is precious, generous, and of high quality. This place is worth your...More

This scuola is sometimes just referred to as Scuola di San Giorgio Degli Schiavone. The paintings on the ground floor by Carpaccio are stunningly beautiful and detailed. Unusually for such religious paintings there is movement and sounds depicted and many touches of humour and real...More

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.

Its origins are from when Venice annexed Dalmatia in the 15th century, and the Dalmatians were allowed to create their Venetian headquarters. Carpaccio (of Dalmatian descent) was brought in to create a series of stunning paintings. They are on 2 floors, with the 1st floor...More

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

The Carpaccios on the main floor of the Scuola Dalmata are beautifully executed and very vivid, but what really charms a visitor is the humor and drama with which he tells the story of St. George and the dragon. Allow your eyes a few minutes...More

Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side

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.
