Your Stay

The summer school is held in Villa Hanbury, Ventimiglia, while the hotels are in Bordighera, a nearby town. We'll be running a bus to and from the school.

You will be staying at the hotel your name is listed under on the People page. That page has links to the hotels in case you wish to try to book extra days/guests. Unfortunately at this late stage we can't help with that; the hotel manager won't accept any more changes from us.

For trip planning, see: http://www.orariotrasporti.regione.liguria.it -- page available in Italian, English, and German.
