The scenery around the hotel was stunning but our schedules had been so stuffed I never had time to fully enjoy it. I managed to get a good half hour before breakfast just walking around. The hotel was situated an hour outside Bologna so I never really saw the town itself. In summertime the hotel is also a spa retreat.
Immediatly after the show we all went to the airport which was only a ten minute drive away from the venue anyway. No need to wait five hours at Schiphol this time. Home just before midnight and slept loooong the next day, missing out on, eh, some lectures.
