Excursions

We are happy to share some special discounts with you that we were able to negotiate with the Pisa Convention Bureau. We also have a generalized schedule of which activities EGC is planning to offer. This way we want to give you an idea of what to expect.

  • Sightseeing tours of Pisa with EGC guides in the afternoons. Duration: 2 hours
  • Hangouts at the beach during the afternoons (exact location to be announced). Warning: the beach is usually crowded during Summer and business in the area is expensive!
  • As per usual the Main tournament will take a break on Wednesdays, so there will be time for many different activities:
    • Short excursions with EGC guides with lunch in nearby locations like San Gimignano, Pistoia Zoo, or Volterra, returning in the afternoon
    • Full day excursions with EGC guides to various places in the nearby area like Florence, Siena, and Pistoia
    • Full day excursion with EGC guides to the beach
  • Monday and Thursday afternoons excursion with EGC guides to the natural history museum of Calci
  • Tuesday and Friday afternoons excursion with EGC guides to Lucca

Important: The above schedule is not final yet. We expect changes to be made as we get closer to the beginning of the Congress. So please check back later for more reliable information!
