Dear visitors,

The Giorgio Cini Foundation is opening for visitors , offering an open-air itinerary which allows you to enjoy the beauties of the island while favouring social distancing. In compliance with the anti-COVID 19 norms, your collaboration is fundamental and for this we ask you to follow the instructions below.

We are open to visitors on saturday and sunday. For details about the tour organization, click here. A fixed number of people are admitted at fixed times, so it is compulsory to book your ticket online. For further info: info@visitcini.com

For your visit an audio guide is available, included in the ticket price. Alternatively, to make the experience completely contactless and safe, you can download the app for the tour on your own smartphone (iOs or Android). The audio guides which you can rent onsite are sanitised each time they are used, but we advise you to use your own earbuds for the tour.

The meeting-point for the tour of the Giorgio Cini Foundation is at the San Giorgio Café. Once you get off the boat, go left, towards the lighthouse, then turn the corner and go straight; you will find the coffee shop on your right.

It is recommended to arrive at least 10 minutes before the tour departure to ensure punctuality. In case of delay, it will not be possible to have a refund but you can join the next tour or another tour, subject to availability..

The tour of the Giorgio Cini Foundation with the Borges Labyrinth lasts about 50 minutes and will be accompanied by an operator whom we ask you to follow throughout the itinerary.
