Travel and Accommodation:

Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses.

A room near Santa Lucia Train Station may be a suitable option since you can easily reach San Giorgio Island with vaporetto line n°2 in 45 minutes from Ferrovia Stop (in front of Santa Lucia train station).

Also a room near “Zattere” vaporetto stop may be a good option since you can reach San Giorgio Island with vaporetto line n°2 in 10 minutes.
