Get out of a tangled Borges Labyrinth, find out about the existence of parallel realities, and unravel the mysteries of Time!
Borges Labyrinth is more than a kilometer long and it is like an open book, where you can really lose a sense of time and space, walking among huge sand clocks, mirrors, green tigers and other things.
Borges Labyrinth is a great opportunity to escape from the noisy Venice and immerse yourself in a puzzle that only you will be able to unravel. Take a walk through the maze, but try not to get lost - get out of the maze is quite difficult.
