As service for individual participants Universalturismo will arrange your hotel accommodation at no extra charge. A voucher will be sent out as confirmation of your reservation. Kindly read payment and cancellation conditions carefully before booking.

Due to limited availability in Florence for this particular period we do advise you to make your reservation as early as possible in order to have the best choice of available hotels.

Please ensure your hotel reservation is made by December 31st 2017. After this date room availability is not guaranteed.
