TRIESTE, ITALY

10th – 14th September 2017

Pre-conference Venice Extension (depart UK 07 September)

Post-conference Ljubljana Extension (return UK 17 September)

Join Conference Plus this September for some excellent Continuing Medical Education and visit the charming underestimated city of Trieste in the north east of Italy bordering onto Slovenia. Here you will see beautiful architecture whilst savouring wonderful Italian food and enjoy the opportunity to learn about its fascinating history as part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, not to mention its rich literary history connected with James Joyce who lived in Trieste for 15 years.

This beautiful port boasts Europe’s largest sea front square – the Piazza Unità d'Italia, which was modelled on Venice’s St Mark’s Square and is part of the Austrian Quarter. Here are magnificent buildings of different architectural styles situated very close to the stylish neoclassical Hotel Savoia Excelsior, which is our base for the conference. A beautiful building with sleek furnishings, located right on the sea front with wonderful views and just a three minute walk from Piazza dell’Unita, the central heart of the city. With a choice of rooms from classic, superior, deluxe or suites, you have the option of having a beautiful sea view room. In each room you will find a pillow menu and your Espresso coffee machine for a quick coffee fix as well as the usual amenities such as a safe, wifi & mini bar.

From here it is easy to walk to the Roman Theatre and the narrow winding streets of Città Vecchia (Old Town).

Conference plus will combine the education sessions with an opportunity to explore this surprising destination. This cosmopolitan city has a history of great cultural diversity and this is reflected by some beautiful religious buildings that include a Greek Orthodox church, a Serbian Orthodox church, a Lutheran church, and a synagogue.

A short journey out of the city is the Miramare Castle full of beauty and splendour. Built between 1855 and 1860 for Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg, the castle is a temple to his vanity, bristling with over-the-top furnishings and a Throne Room whose throne, with gilded lions as feet, was never used as he was executed in Mexico in 1867 when he was their Emperor.

The coffee in Italy is great but here in Trieste you will find some of the finest in the country and that also goes for the gelato. Its tax-free port status coincided with the coffee craze sweeping Europe. As well as becoming a big importer (and still today; Illy has its HQ here), it developed a string of Viennese-style coffeehouses. Several still exist, such as Caffè Tommaseo with its faded belle époque charm. A forum and basilica lie nearby in the shadow of the 15th-century castello, a fortified residence for the Habsburgs and well worth the walk uphill for the views over the city and Adriatic.

This is an opportunity of discovering a beautiful Italian city that you may not have considered visiting before, whilst attaining 12 hours of CPD training which will be programmed around the touring schedule in order for you to enjoy all that this charming city has to offer.

There are different ways of reaching Trietse; on a direct flight with Ryanair from London Stansted (available only on the inbound date), or on EasyJet flights to either Venice or Ljubljana, in neighbouring Slovenia. So you may want to consider a pre or post conference extension. We have, therefore, put together for you some options to enhance your trip.

Option 1: Pre-Conference extension in Venice

Venice never ceases to amaze with its sheer beauty of winding canals, magnificent gothic palaces and baroque churches all punctuated by wonderful art galleries and coffee shops.

Spend your day wandering through St Mark’s Square, popping into the grand Basilica and perhaps the Doge’s Palace whilst you’re there. Move on to the Accademia gallery or the Guggenheim collection and take in a concert in the evening in one of the many churches.

No matter how many times we visit Venice, there is always something new to discover. This is a city where you can stroll along the little bridges, squares and canals or take the waterbus over to Murano to see the glass blowers.

Our base will be the very centrally located HOTEL SPLENDID.

A luxury boutique hotel in Venice city centre, the Splendid Venice is as elegant as the city itself. Gondolas drift past the window. Located at a 5-minute walk from St Mark’s Square and the Rialto Bridge.

We have based this stay on a Superior room category; however, there is a choice of deluxe rooms and suites upon request. Please enquire if this is of interest to you.

Option 2: Post-Conference extension in Ljubljana

Hop over the border into Slovenia and spend three nights in a city centre hotel in the delightful city of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.

Here you will be able to stroll through the pretty cobbled streets, over the bridges and ride up the hill to the beautiful castle, which overlooks the city. Take a boat ride along the canal seeing all the sights from a different perspective and enjoy some local specialties in the numerous restaurants & cafes.

Magical Lake Bled is an absolute ‘must’ with its fairy tale island in the lake and another wonderful castle high on the hill affording the most spectacular views imaginable.

Our chosen hotel here is the very centrally located and newly renovated HOTEL SLON where the Deluxe rooms are simply delightful.

Based in a spacious deluxe room with a pillow menu, kettle with complimentary tea and your own Illy coffee machine, you will hardly want to leave the room.
