On Sunday, July 16 our group will travel from Milan to Siena. A bus will pick you up at the Residence Pola at 9:00 AM and take us to Siena’s Porta Romana, a short walk on via Roma to the Refugio of the Collegio Santa Chiara, via del Refugio 4. When on the right you meet Via del Refugio (it looks like a small square), turn on it and walk towards the church (Chiesa del Refugio). The entrance of the Refugio is on the right (see the picture).
If you plan to spend your weekends visiting other Italian places in Central Italy, you may consider remaining for the night in the cities that we visited during our weekly trips (or nearby locations). In particular, on July 21 you could stay in Florence, on July 27 in Rome (it’s our 3-day weekend), and on August 4 in Lucca, not far from Cinque Terre. Do not hesitate to write to (or talk with) Prof. Erspamer, Chiara, or Julianne for suggestions and further information.
You must inform Prof. Erspamer of any trip that you plan and of any night that you decide to spend outside of Milan and Siena. If you travel outside of Italy you must obtain his permission beforehand.
