The resort is ideally situated on top of a mountain with beautiful views of the Serchio Valley mountains. Single and double rooms will be provided. Room amenities include a private bathroom, air conditioning, satellite television, hairdryer, internet access and mini-bar. Onsite amenities include a spa, fitness center and pool. You must present a photo ID, (usually a passport), when checking into the hotel.
The single or double occupancy registration fee covers 5 nights of lodging (Sunday through Thursday night, with checkout Friday morning). If you plan to arrive early or stay beyond the official conference dates, you must make your own reservations for the extra nights by contacting the resort directly at +39 0583 7691. You will be responsible for the cost of any additional room nights as well as any incidental charges (i.e. in-room movies, room service, etc.). A credit card will be required upon check-in for incidental expenses.
Italy uses a Type C (CEE 7/16) two-pronged adaptor. The pins are 4mm in diameter. This adaptor is also called a "Europlug". Remember to bring your own electrical adaptors with you. Unfortunately, you will not be able to purchase one while at Il Ciocco.
For those attendees who choose to register as “off-site” (this package includes registration and meals only), below is a partial list of hotels available in the Barga area. All off-site attendees are responsible for securing and pay for their own lodging arrangements. Please note that FASEB does not have a rate agreement with any of these venues, and will not be supplying shuttle service from these venues to the Renaissance. The list is provided for informational purposes only.
Child and Family Care Resources
FASEB provides detailed information for each conference site on the Science Research Conference (SRC) website and also provides venue information directly to each attendee. Although FASEB does not directly provide child care services, attendees are welcome to have guests (including spouses, children, nannies and babysitters) accompany them to the conference to provide such care. FASEB offers an alternative off-site registration fee at all conferences, to accommodate those with special family care needs (the off-site fee includes the conference and all meals but enables attendees to book their own accommodations). Both the FASEB and venue websites include information on nearby off-site accommodations that can assist attendees with locating licensed child care providers and daycare services. The venue management will also provide any assistance to attendees regarding child/family care issues or concerns. Each attendee is also encouraged to contact FASEB with any special needs that they may have.
