This is one of numerous confraternities that constituted the social fabric Venice, but what sets it apart is the cycle of paintings by Carpaccio, completed in the early 16 century, which adorn its small oratory.

Before our visit to Venice, I don't think I had ever heard of Carpaccio. And even before visiting the Santa Giorgio e Trifone Scuola, I don't think I had too much regard for his talents. But the series of painting decorating the ground floor room...More

Great for children (if they are interested in pictures). The paintings are narrative and there are lots of interesting details. Might be scary with the man slaughtering dragon though... A small house. Few visitors. Entrance fee 4-5 E.

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

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

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
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals

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.
