The last four kilometres are serpentines on a small mountain road, which may look scary if you are not used to those. But trust me, two cars can pass without problems. The last two kilometres are on a gravel road which can be a little tough for low cars. If you decide for a rental car, consider getting a SUV, but standard cars get there without problems, too. If you worry about driving up the hill, then park the car down in the valley and we will pick you up.
There are convenient and frequent direct trains to Parma from both Milan central station and Bologna. The train station in Parma is located in the city centre, so if you get an accommodation in Parma, you can most probably walk there.
Check connections here: Trenitalia
We can arrange a shuttle service from/to Parma train station or directly from/to the airports Milan or Bologna. Let us know if you are interested and we can arrange it for you maybe together with other participants.
The idea of a summer camp is to stay all together during the whole five days. All participants will be provided with a tent (one per person), air mattress, sleeping bag, bed sheet, cushion (pillow), towel and a torch (flash) light. On site are new bathrooms and showers.
In case you bring your own tent, remember to indicate that during the registration process. The registration fee will then be reduced. Just use the coupon code no_tent_for_me
