Spring Head & Neck group meeting

Florence, IT

On behalf of the president of our group, Pr. Vincent Gregoire and our local host in Florence, Drs. Pierluigi Bonomo and Lorenzo Livi, I cordially invite you to our next Meeting held in Florence, Italy March 9th-10th, 2018.

The agenda will follow as soon as it becomes available. The estimated starting time will be Friday, March 9th at 12:00 pm. The Meeting will be closed March 10th, at around 1 pm.

For members of the steering committee: Please plan to arrive the day before because we are planning to have our SC meeting the morning of Friday, March 9th.

To schedule your trip, here is some useful information provided by our host:

Travel information

The best option is to land at Florence Airport, which has direct connections to main European cities (Amsterdam, Brussels, Barcelona, Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Zurich). You can easily then get to Florence downtown by taxi or bus in 20 minutes. An alternative is to land at Pisa Airport (many low cost companies) and from there get to Florence main railway station (Santa Maria Novella) by train in about 50 minutes. Finally, you could also easily reach Florence by train from Rome (90 minutes) or Milan (less than two hours). Santa Maria Novella railway station is at walking distance from Florence Dome (city center).

Meeting venue

The meeting will take place at Palazzo del Pegaso, via Cavour 4 (200 mts away from piazza San Giovanni – Florence Dome).


The partner travel agency arranged to have a free pre-booking for 36 rooms at Convitto della Calza (www.calza.it) and 20 rooms at Hotel Villa Carlotta (hotelvillacarlotta.it). For Convitto della Calza, the attached reservation form has to be filled out and sent to t.rachele@calza.it, as indicated in the form. For Hotel Villa Carlotta, participants are welcome to directly get in contact with the hotel administration and mention that APRICOT VIAGGI prebooked the rooms. The cost for Hotel Villa Carlotta is 70 euros per night. For both hotels city tax is not included.  Both pre-bookings will expire after January 17th (last day). Both hotels are in Oltrarno quarter and about 2/2.5 kms away from the meeting venue, which is easily reachable by bus, taxi, or on foot (if you feel like walking for about 30 minutes through downtown Florence).

The partner travel agency is at any rate more than willing to help individually arrange the accommodation (simply writing at: brunella@apricotviaggi.it; mail subject: Florence EORTC meeting 9-10/3).

Looking forward to meeting you in beautiful Florence!
