What to expect

Join this special combo tour of about 2 hours and 30 minutes that will allow you to visit the Giorgio Cini Foundation, the Borges Labyrinth, and the Bosco of the Cini Foundation with the Vatican Chapels.

The tour to the monumental complex of the Giorgio Cini Foundation will allow you to visit to the two cloisters, the Palladian refectory with the facsimile of the Wedding at Cana, the photo room and the Longhena staircase.

The tour of the Borges Labyrinth instead includes a visit to the "New Manica Lunga", the ancient Benedictine dormitory transformed into a library center with a renovation by the architect Michele De Lucchi and, for the first time, a visit inside of the Borges Labyrinth: a one kilometer long path, made with 3200 boxwood plants arranged according to the Randoll Coate design and inspired by the story by Jorge Luis Borges, The garden of forking paths.

The visit to the Wood of the Foundation with the Vatican Chapels, on the other hand, allows you to visit the ten chapels designed on the occasion of the first participation of the Holy See in the Architecture Biennale: an evocative walk with an audio guide accompanied by Antonio Fresa's original music among the small churches designed by ten internationally renowned architects.
