OSGeo Hacking event
Check out Bolsena Code Sprint 2012 for this year!
OSGeo Hacking event in a monastry near Bolsena (16-22 June 2008)
We will have an OSGeo "hacking" event in an Italian monastry (here). The monastry is overlooking Lago Bolsena and offers space to about 25 people in small bedrooms :-) . Its probably one of the coolest places for such an event. Quiet, isolated, simple and serene. There's a good wireless and wired internet connection, although I wouldn't bet my hand on it if we all start to download satellite images. It should be perfect for SVN, IRC and mail. Have a look yourself, including looking at the photo gallery.
The cost will be about 200 Euro per person for the week.
For what the food concerns, there will be a cook who will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner for 30 Euro per person per day. There's a large dining space, but we will eat outside overlooking the lake if weather permits (very likely in June).
We'll discuss other technicalities as they come up, i.e. assistance if you need to rent a car, organize to travel together, public transport etc... Please feel free to use this WIKI page for that or create a sub page.
The event will take place during the whole week (7 days).
Please contact me if you have questions about this event (Jeroen Ticheler)
All rooms are full, so you can't sign up anymore for a room. You are welcome during the days, but you will have to organize your own accommodation
Those participating, you will need to make and advance payment of 100 Euro to me to guarantee your place. Please contact me privately by email so we can arrange that. I've no problems if you later need to change as long as you make sure there's someone taking your place :-)

-  there are options to do outdoor activities like tracking. A guide can be organized and the cost is very reasonable.
How to arrive to the Monastry
The closest airports are the Roma airports (Ciampino and Fiumincino).
From Rome to the monastry there is 135 km aproximately.
There is no railway to Bolsena.
From Fiumicino to Rome you can take the train METROPOLITANO FR1.
From Rome you can take a bus (cotral http://www.cotralspa.it/ENG/capolinea.asp) to Viterbo and other bus from viterbo to Bolsena.
Monday to Friday there is a bus each hour but Sunday there are very few buses.
From Bolsena main street to the Monastry is aproximately 1 km.
It could be interesting to rent a private bus or several cars to move from Rome to the Monastry and from the Monastry to Rome.
