New Perspectives in Science Education

Edition 13

Tuscany Tour

A Guided Tour of Tuscany will be organised in the framework of the International Conference "New Perspectives in Science Education - 13th Edition".
The Guided Tuscany Tour will be held on 16th March 2024. It will be a great chance to discover two of the most outstanding cities in Tuscany:


Siena, is likely the most beautiful medieval city in Italy. The city sits over three hills. Its heart is Piazza del Campo, known worldwide for the famous Palio run, a horse race run around the piazza. Movie audiences worldwide can see Siena and the Palio in the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. The Campo is dominated by the red Palazzo Pubblico, the Public Palace, and its tower, Torre del Mangia. The Dome of Siena was built in marble at the same as the Public Palace, at the beginning of 1300.

San Gimignano

San Gimignano, known as the City of Beautiful Towers, is one of the UNESCO world heritage centres. It is a classic medieval walled hill town in Tuscany, surrounded by rows of vineyards producing the famous wine Vernaccia. Its medieval towers create a beautiful skyline visible from the surrounding countryside. The towers, some as tall as 50 meters, were built by aristocratic families in medieval times to demonstrate their wealth and power.

The tour will start from the Conference Venue, Grand Hotel Mediterraneo, at 8:45 a.m. of Saturday 16th March 2024

The participation fee is 130,00 Euro (excluding or including 22% Italian VAT according to the invoicing preferences) and includes:
