Visit Prato

Prato is the second largest city in Tuscany and the historical and industrial hub of the region, situated 20 minutes outside of the Renaissance capital of Florence, 2h from Rome, and 2,5h from Milano. Nested in the breathtaking Tuscan vineyards, Prato is a jewel of a city full of castles and churches but also divine food and drinking. The Conference itself will be located in one of Tuscany’s most beautiful monastic complexes, built in the 13th century and situated in the heart of the city.

Things To Do

Dear Guests and Spouses,

There will be a number of day trips and tours of Tuscany – including Florence, Pisa – that will be available. We are in the process of finding a reputable tour company. Once we find it, we will post a link to their site.

Monday June 24 – the day before the start of the conference – is one of the highlights of Florence’s social calendar.  The famous Calcio Storico match will take place. This is the oldest, continuous sporting event in the world.  Inspired by the training methods of the Roman legionaries the game was started in the Middle Ages. It is a soccer match that combines rugby, wrestling and boxing among the four historical neighborhoods of Florence.   The final starts with a medieval procession down the streets of the city and, after the match, outdoor parties and fireworks.
