Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni

Highly recommended
Also called the Scuola Dalmata dei Santi Giorgio e Trifone, it was founded in 1451. Behind the simple façade lies a masterpiece of 16C art: the cycle of Saints George, Tryphon and Jerome by Vittore Carpaccio (1502-07). These panels are remarkable for their amber hues, rigorous composition, almost surreal dimension of some scenes, variety of picturesque details borrowed from the East and the extraordinary precision, almost Flemish, of some of the scenes.
