Complete description

The tour, lasting about two hours, takes place mostly in the open air and includes the architecture and art of the Giorgio Cini Foundation and the enchantment of the Wood of the Cini Foundation with the architectural installations of the Vatican Chapels. The tranquility of these areas is ideal for enjoying the beauty of Venice and its history, away from the conventional tourist places. You can visit the Palladio Cloister, the Buora Cloister the Longhena Staircase, the Refectory with the facsimile of the Wedding at Cana, the photograph room and the view of the Borges Labyrinth.
After that you can go into the Wood of the Foundation and visit the Vatican Chapels, the 10 chapels designed by ten international architects, as you listen to the commentary of the audio guide accompanied by the original soundtrack produced specially for the tour. 

The experience is completed with a gourmet lunch at the San Giorgio Café, which you can eat before or after the tour, as you prefer. The lunch includes the chef’s first course or a salad or a sandwich of your choice+Sicilian cannolo (crunchy pastry with creamy ricotta and pistachio filling)+glass of wine (or Spritz or fresh fruit juice), water and coffee. Try the menus prepared in the café/restaurant of the island of San Giorgio, where genuine Sicilian cuisine is blended with the Venetian gastronomical tradition. The San Giorgio Café has various outdoor areas where you can eat peacefully and safely: the enchanting outdoor platform facing onto the quay with the sail-boats and the view of St. Mark’s, and the perfumed interior garden facing the bell-tower of San Giorgio and the wood of the Cini Foundation.

Amazing Tour! It was easily one of the most remarkable experiences of my life. It was a true experience to have lunch there with the wonderful view of Venice and the amazing food. A place to come back too for sure.

During the tour we have visited 10 Vatican chapels, as well as San Georgio monastery and bell tower. The stroll in the wood where chapels are was very refreshing and inspiring. However, best of all I liked the monastery tour in which we have been shown the library and the Borghe's garden from above.

Delizioso ambiente,sobrio ed elegante con vista mozzafiato su riva degli Schiavoni. Menù ridotto ma molto curato con Piatti eccellenti. Personale di sala attento e gradevole. Ma la cosa più impagabile è essere fuori dalla pazza folla a una sola fermata di vaporetto da piazza San Marco
