Back to main page Information  AARCH final workshop
at Lipari (Italy)


The tourism season at Lipari starts on Easter, so accommodation is made difficult by reservations by  tourist groups. 

Accommodation in 2- or 3- beds room:

The residence Baia Portinenti can accommodate the majority of AARCH people in 2- and 3- beds rooms, at the price per person of 35 and 30 Euro/day respectively (breakfast included). The same prices will be charged to all the stay in the case you arrive in Lipari before May 10th or leave after May 14th  (refer to AARCH meeting in your correspondence to the hotel).

To seize this opportunity you have to book NOW, because rooms can not be kept available much longer. I have been given the deadline of  January 15th, 2006.   To make your reservation, fill the booking form and send it by e-mail to the Hotel and to Evdokia.

Have a look at the hotel:

Accommodation in single room:

The prize will probably be around 60 Euro/day.  If your choice is for single room, send an e-mail to Evdokia before January 15th, 2006.  Once we know the number of rooms needed, we shall look for them at nearby hotels.
