On your way to Scuola Grande de San Rocco, be sure to walk through this school. Not much to see, but the gate is lovely.

Had some work going on when visiting so not the best looking, but this area is well worth exploring - some great shops and cafes yet with a little more tranquility.

Beautiful, intimate church for Symbolic Ceremony. Super accommodating and very easy to organize with their staff. We were able to create a beautiful atmosphere for the Wedding, although the is interior is beautiful on its own. So charming.
