YAPC::EU 2010 - The Renaissance of Perl




My One Hotel Galilei

My One Hotel is fully booked - try one of the other options.

It is possible to sleep at the venue, My One Hotel Galilei (4 stars): you'll be just an elevator ride away from the conference! Please note, however, that the hotel is not in the downtown, see map:


It's possible to reach Pisa city centre walking (Pisa is fairly compact), although at dusk it could be not the most pleasant walk and a taxi may be preferable. Shuttle buses from the city centre will be available for the conference and other events we do at the venue. The hotel has a shuttle for guests which runs to the nearby airport (not at night), where public transport is available.

Room prices are quite reasonable for a 4-star hotel:

  • double (for one person): € 70/night
  • double (+1 infant): € 90/night
  • triple: € 110/night

Prices include breakfast and VAT.

My One Hotel Galilei has many rooms reserved for the YAPC, so if you're sleeping there be sure to state the YAPCEU2010 code when booking via e-mail or phone: even though the code wont't provide you a discounted rate, it will allow you to book the rooms reserved for the conference.

Do not book through the My One Hotel online booking system, as you won't find free rooms when using it.
