Visit to S. Gimignano

San Gimignano is a well-preserved medieval village located 55km (34 miles) south-west of Florence. San Gimignano features a wonderful skyline of medieval towers, and is also known for the many art and craft shops, and the "Vernaccia di S. Gimignano" white wine. The arrival to S. Gimignano is expected on Wednesday of May 24 by late afternoon, so that attendees have time to walk around in this beautiful village. After the visit in San Gimignano, the banquet will be served to the exclusive Relais della Cappuccina restaurant. Three different menus for the banquet: meat menu, fish menu, and vegetarian menu will be offered. Please make your menu choice in the registration form. Additional tickets for the San Gimignano visit and banquet cost US $85, and can be purchased at the time of registration or on-site. Please note that student registration does not include the visit and banquet in San Gimignano.
