A fantastic trip over the water to San Giorgio. A very peaceful and informative tour away from the bustle of Venice's main attractions. We did the Borges Labyrinth followed by the Cini foundation and then also the Vatican Chapels and Open air theatre. It was serene with a couple of intervals to enjoy an expresso and wine and Cicchetti in between in the cafe. Our guide was lovely, escorting us and explaining in between the great audio guides. Afterwards (by ourselves) we visited the church and went up the Bell tower. This is well worth a visit in my opinion instead of queuing up for the Campanile for hours.!! You get a magnificent view of Venice and Guidecca and neighbouring islands. And at 8 euros each and no queues its great!! Also the artworks are amazing. As is the little harbour..A fantastic morning spent.

A must see, everything is grand and magnificent. Count 2 hours minimum visit. No waiting thanks to the ticket reserved on the site. I highly recommend

Good value for money, stress-free access to the museum, no queues - although we did visit in February.

Very interesting tour, we really enjoyed the experience.

It was breathtakingly beautiful well worth a visit.
