Location & Venue

So splendid was medieval Verona that its reputation alone inspired Shakespeare to set two plays here (Romeo and Juliet and The Two Gentlemen of Verona). Today, Verona is a popular and busy destination, famous for its summer opera season at the Roman Arena.

The course will take place in the magnificent Palazzo della Gran Guardia. Standing behind the town walls with its elegant steps, it was built in two different historical periods, originally for military purposes. It has recently been restored and now is an important convention center hosting exhibitions, cultural events and fairs.

The Palazzo della Gran Guardia is located in the city centre and has many different hotel options around, most of them are walking distance.

Participants will be responsible for covering their costs of travel and accommodation. While attending the course, coffee breaks, lunches and attendance to the social dinner will be provided and included in the registration price.

If you would like to arrange your accommodation close to the meeting venue, you can find these hotels in the area.
