Arrival and Departure

Our Speak Programmes all begin at a Meeting Point. This is a central location in one of our Meeting Point cities (Milan, Turin, Florence or Bari).  We provide all of our Anglos with a Pre-arrival Information Pack including travel tips and suggestions for accommodation in the Meeting Point city outside of the Programme dates. 
We strongly recommended that you arrive at least the day before the Programme (ideally, arriving in the Meeting Point city no later than the evening prior to the Programme starting). You will need to organise your own travel to the Meeting Point city before the programme starts and your own travel home or on to your next destination after the end of the Programme. Once you have arrived in the Meeting Point city:
  • Anglos are invited to an Orientation Dinner or Aperitif in a central location in Milan, Turin, Florence or Bari on the evening before the Programme for a chance to meet the other Anglos.
  • The next morning, the Programme begins with a Welcome Breakfast, together with the Italian participants at the Meeting Point before taking a transfer together to the venue in time for check-in and lunch.
  • On the final day of the Programme, all participants will have lunch before departing together in the afternoon, returning to the Departure Point city.
Please note: Your return travel home or on to your next destination should not be booked for any earlier that 8pm on the final day of the Programme.
