Finally it's impossible to miss the massive Scuola Grande di San Rocco. This church is a 16th century renaissance building dedicated to Saint Roch, the protector of the sick and plague stricken people. The building is still active as a popular venue for classical concerts in the evenings. It contains as extraordinary collection of the works of Tintoretto.

Our conclusion is that San Polo is a great sestiere where we found numerous wine bars and were able to try several Venetian snacks while enjoying delicious local wines at very reasonable prices.

Address:
Sestiere of San Polo.

Directions:
