Please plan your travel itinerary so that you arrive in Varenna some time on Sunday 12 June and depart Varenna some time on Saturday 18 June. For participants arriving in Italy by air, the best entry points are Milano Linate Airport, Milano Malpensa Airport or Orio al Serio Airport. Then one has to reach a railway station (mostly Milano Centrale) and take a train to Varenna Esino. Also note that travelling from (say) Malpensa Airport to Varenna may take as much as three hours.

Useful links might be website trenitalia and website trenord.

The Swiss Rail website and the German Rail website may also be useful.

From Varenna Esino railway station to your hotel you will need to walk (Google maps).


Participants are mainly housed in Villa Cipressi or Hotel Beretta (close to the station); all participants are asked to come to Villa Cipressi first on arrival in Varenna.
