Complete description of the tour

This tour is ideal for treating yourself to an afternoon in the tranquility and beauty of the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, the pearl of Venice: you can get to know the artistic and architectural heritage of the island and end your day at sunset, with a cocktail and a dish of cicchetti enjoying one of the most beautiful views of Venice. The first stop of the tour is the Giorgio Cini Foundation complex, where you can visit, accompanied by the downloadable app on your smartphone or audio guide, the Chiostro del Palladio, the Chiostro dei Buora, the Longhena staircase, the Last Supper with the facsimile of the Wedding at Cana, the photo room and the Borges Labyrinth. Then, you will be able to participate in a second tour in the Wood with the Vatican Chapels, during which you will be able to walk freely meeting the charm of the Vatican Chapels, the installations of the Vatican pavilion created for the 2018 Architecture Biennale, immersed in the experience of the audio guide with the story of the architectures and the original soundtrack produced for this path. After the visit, you can enjoy a moment of relaxation at the San Giorgio Café, with a Venetian aperitif. You will be served a drink of your choice (wine, cocktail or non-alcoholic drink) and you will taste a selection of ‘cicchetti’ (or small appetizers or side dishes, similar to tapas), a symbol of Venetian aperitifs.

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.

Ottimo aperitivo in un posto stupendo. La partnership con lo chef Lamantia eleva l appeal già alto del luogo. Ottimi cicchetti e prosecco, meraviglioso il tour e superba la vista dalla terrazza.
