Full description

Immerse yourself in the history and beauty of San Giorgio Maggiore Island with an audio-guided tour of 3 of the island's most breathtaking landmarks, the Giorgio Cini Foundation, the Vatican Chapels, and Borges Labyrinth. Meet your tour leader and get your audio guide and headphones. Head to the Giorgio Cini Foundation to see a facsimile of Paolo Veronese’s Wedding at Cana in Palladio's Refectory, the photography room, the elegant Longhena staircase and the restored former Benedictine Monastery.

Next, discover the Teatro Verde, the most beautiful theater in the world, as actress Katharine Hepburn defined it in the 1950s. It is an amphitheater with steps of white Vicenza stone interspersed with boxwood backs. Building this theater was a huge undertaking, which required six hundred and forty working days and one hundred and sixty-six workers at work every day. The construction of the grandiose stage which covers an area of 1,400 square meters was very difficult. The orchestra pit could accommodate up to 150 performers. Finally, head to Borges Labyrinth to enter the surreal world of the writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges. Make your way to the center of the 1-kilometer long path made from 3200 boxwood plants and learn more about the path's most emblematic symbols.

Les lieux sont beaux et intéressants mais l'organisation fragmentée de ces visites est surprenante et peu agréable. Un des membres du personnel de la cafeteria le long de San Giorgio où se trouve le point de RV s'est même montré agressif et insultant envers des personnes du groupe. Les jeunes guides sont sympathiques mais n'ont finalement pas autre chose à faire qu'à distribuer des audio guides. Les enregistrements sont intéressants mais insuffisants.

Friendly and welcoming staff!!! The Borges labyrinth is surprising. Unfortunately the foundation was closed during our visit.

Le guide non tutte all'altezza. Bravissima la ragazza del tour nel bosco e le cappelle. Grazie!
