The island of San Giorgio Maggiore is beautiful. We started off with our lunch at the cafe and it was outstanding. The waitress was great and informative! It’s amazing to see how much of the buildings were destroyed and how nicely they have been restored. It is a very peaceful and quiet island! We were not able to see the Vatican Chapel, but saw the library, Borges Labyrinth (maze) and the Cloisters. We had Vincenzo and Alicia as our guide for the first and second tour. Both were very knowledgeable and friendly. We used Google phone devices to listen to the information about the site. Easy to use and hear! Great tour at a fair price. I would recommend this tour to friends and family.
It was a great day, with perfect weather! Our driver/guide, Miriam, was excellent, pointing out points of interest and giving information and history of the places we passed and stopped at. She took the time to show us things we would have missed, and made plenty of stops along the way for photo opportunities. Lunch was on your own at Lake Misurina, with several choices. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day with breathtaking views of the mountains, and a highlight of my trip to Italy.
Had an amazing trip with our guide Simone (ask for him if you can, he's the best!) October turned out to be a great time to go to the Dolomites - weather permitting - with almost no traffic and crowds. We had time for plenty of stops in idyllic Lake Misurina, pastures, and towns with breathtaking views of the Dolomites.
Wonderful experience! Romantic and suggestive at the same time. Thanks also to the gondolier who was able to explain and tell us some "secrets" about the city. I absolutely recommend it
Although we booked for groups, there were two of us in a gondola, it was beautiful.
