The conference main venue is the boutique Hotel San Martin, on the edge of medieval village Smartno. The hotel is exclusively reserved for the conference, and it will accommodate a large number of the participants. The conference room is also located in the hotel.

The price for six nights, all included (except the dinner in Sistiana/Portopiccolo), is 680 euros for double occupancy rooms, and a limited number of single rooms are available at additional cost.

This price also includes several activities. One excursion will bring the participants to Bovec, on the Julian Alps, a center for rafting, canoying, hiking, biking and much more.
The second event will start with a hike along the Rilke path, a trail on the gulf of Trieste with amazing views of the coast and of the Duino Castle. The Rilke has historical interests as well, since it still preserves several observational points built during World War II. The walk will end in Sistiana, on the beach, still in time for a last swim in the sea. Dinner will follow in Sistiana or in Portopiccolo. Wine and olive oil tasting sessions will also be organized.
