The conference will be held in the historic city of Grosseto situated in the magnificent region of Tuscany in Central Italy. Grosseto lies in a green plain traced by the flow of the Ombrone River and its origins go back to the powerful Etruscan and Roman city of Roselle. There is a good train connection between Rome (Fiumicino) and Grosseto on an hourly basis and the trip takes 2.5 – 3 hours. There is also the possibility of landing at Pisa Airport Galileo Galilei where a frequent train connection to Grosseto is also available. A taxi from Grosseto train station to any of a number of hotels in the city costs around 12 euros. Grosseto’s proximity to a number of attractive historic locations in Tuscany also offers an excellent incentive for extending your stay in this region. This city is 75 km away from Siena – one of Italy’s best preserved medieval towns, 143 km away from Florence and 150 km away from Pisa.
A map showing the location of Grosseto within the region of Tuscany is available here.
