The venue of the Summer School, San Vincenzo, is located in the middle of the Etruscan Coast, a long narrow stretch of coastline along Tuscany’s coast that goes from Livorno to Piombino. The name of this beautiful coastal area is tied to the presence of the Etruscan civilization that inhabited this area from the start of the 9th century BC (way before the Romans), as so many archeological sites demonstrate today. Riva degli Etruschi Resort is immersed in a 320,000 m2 park, with a pinewood of Mediterranean vegetation that reaches the beach,  approximately one kilometre long,  made of fine sand.

 Riva degli Etruschi Resort is 3 km away from San Vincenzo City centre & train station.
