Previous years
2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012

After five successful years, we'll continue the OSGeo "hacking" event in Bolsena in an Italian monastery (see map location, and videos: 2008-video, 2009-video and 2010-video. The monastery is overlooking Lago Bolsena and offers space to about 25 people in small bedrooms :-) . It is one of the coolest places for such an event. Quiet, isolated, simple and serene. There's a good wireless and wired internet connection, further improved this year. It should be perfect for SVN, IRC and mail. Have a look yourself, including looking at the photo gallery. For what the food concerns, we will have a cook who will take care of us :-) . There's a large dining space, but we will eat outside overlooking the lake if weather permits (very likely in June).

The all inclusive cost will be 550 Euro (Excl VAT) per person for the full week. You can stay all seven days and food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) is included in the price. As in previous years, we will go out for a city visit and a dinner on one of the evenings (also included).

The event will take place during the whole week (7 days), although the emphasis will probably be Monday to Friday for most participants. Please contact me if you have questions about this event (Jeroen Ticheler)

Alternatively you can take a train from Rome to Orvieto and take a taxi from Orvieto to Bolsena. Orvieto Taxi info: 1) Paolo of 'Gulliver Taxi' tel 0763 302969 or mobile 330 477399. 2) Luigi tel 338 9790846. Luigi speaks limited English 3) OrvietoTaxi : is a good option (by Just)

Monday to Friday there is a bus each hour but Sunday there are very few buses.
