VISITING THE ISLAND OF SAN GIORGIO MAGGIORE IN VENICE As part of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini project to integrate visitor services on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, from Tuesday 16 April it will be possible to visit not only the monumental complex but also the Foundation’s “Wood” and the Vatican Chapels, presented to the public last year during the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. Moreover, the tickets for the Fondazione and the Vatican Chapels can also be used to visit the Bell Tower of the Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore. Visitors have the choice of four different itineraries. 1) Fondazione Giorgio Cini + Vatican Chapels The itinerary includes a tour of the monumental complex of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini and the two cloisters, the Palladian Refectory and the Wedding of Cana, the Photography Room, the Longhena Grand Staircase and Library, the Nuova Manica Lunga, the Borges Labyrinth and the Fondazione’s “Wood” with the ten Vatican Chapels designed by internationally renowned architects. 2) Fondazione Giorgio Cini + Bell Tower of San Giorgio The itinerary combines a tour of the Fondazione Cini with a visit of the Bell Tower of San Giorgio. It is over 75 metres high, one of the highest of the city, and there is a lift to the belfry at the top. 3) Vatican Chapels + Bell Tower of San Giorgio The third itinerary includes a visit of the “Wood” and the Vatican Chapels, and the Bell Tower of San Giorgio with its unique view of the city, the Bacino di San Marco and the surrounding lagoon. 4) Fondazione Giorgio Cini + Vatican Chapels + Bell Tower of San Giorgio The itinerary includes a tour of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, the “Wood” with the Vatican Chapels and the Bell Tower of the Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore. Useful informations Guided tours of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini and the Vatican Chapels are held every day of the week at fixed times; upon booking a time slot the visitor will receive a video guide, which is included in the price of the tour. Video tutorials are available in six languages (Italian, English, Spanish, French, German and Russian) and each tour lasts about an hour. Please arrive at the ticket office 15 minutes before your time slot (the ticket office is located in the building immediately to the left of the Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore). For safety reasons the Fondazione can be visited in groups of up to 25 people, accompanied by an authorized guide. The Bell Tower can be visited before or after the tour without a guide.
