Location of the seminar

The seminar will take place in Brescia, a beautiful city about 100 km from Milan, situated between Bergamo and Verona, and very near to Lake Garda. The city is home to various monuments which figure on the World Heritage Sites list and has a wonderful historic centre, some parts of it going right back to Roman times.

The Seminar itself will be held in the prestigious Centro Paolo VI (Paolo Sesto) near the centre of Brescia (Via Gezio Calini 30), where CHEI has also secured reduced prices for a limited number of rooms for participant accommodation.
