The School is housed in Villa del Grumello, Como, which is set in a park over Como lake.
How to get there
Villa del Grumello is 20 min on foot from Como city center – you can also take a bus, lines 6 and 11 (bus stop: “Como Via Regina Piscine Villa Olmo”, just after “Villa Olmo”).
From the main Train Station (Como S. Giovanni), the nearest bus stop to catch line 6 and 11 is “Piazzale Rocchetto”.
Villa del Grumello has a guest house (“foresteria”) with 19 beds in 2- or 4-bed rooms. The rate is 36,30 euros per night (breakfast not included; a kitchen for self preparing breakfast is available). Please notice that only shared accommodation with other students is allowed (no accompanying persons).
A few rooms have been blocked in 3-star hotels in Como, with rates ranging from 80 to 120 euros per night (breakfast included).
The School Secretariat will take care of the accommodation of the accepted students who have accomplished the payment of the fee, and who have filled out and sent a suitable accommodation form as specified in the acceptance letter.
IMPORTANT NOTICE for all school lecturers and attendees:
We have been informed about companies which contact school speakers and attendees offering travel arrangement (hotel and flight booking) on behalf of the school secretariat, and asking for credit card details in order to proceed.
THIS IS A FRAUD: these agencies are by no means authorized by us.
In case of doubt do not hesitate to contact the school secretariat.
