Accommodation and transfer service

The town of Riva del Garda offers a great variety of hotels of different categories, ranging from 2* to 4*. However, finding a hotel in October may prove difficult due to a great demand; Riva del Garda is a very busy tourist town. In partnership with RivaTour, reduced rates have been negotiated and some rooms have been pre-booked in 3*, 4* hotels.

We strongly encourage all participants to book their rooms in the proposed hotels before 13 September2008. After that date, we cannot guarantee rooms' availability.

Free transfer service will be available from/to Verona Airport and Riva del Garda on:

  • 8 October (to the Hotels) at: 12:30; 15:00; 17:15; 18:45; 23:00.
  • 9 October (to the Congress Centre) at: 12:15.
  • 11 October (to Verona Airport) at: 05:00; 07:30; 12:30.

The transfer should be booked at the same time as the room reservation.
