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.
