How Do I Get There?

The closest airport is Florence Airport, Peretola (In Italian: Aeroporto di Firenze-Peretola and formally Amerigo Vespucci Airport). While flying into Florence is the most direct option, it is also the most expensive. Guests who wish to save a little on flights can fly into Milan or Rome and take a bullet train to Florence. From Rome, it takes about 1.5 hours. From Milan, it takes about two hours.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

The cancellation policy is as follows:

  • Your deposit is fully refundable if cancelled more than 120 days prior to the first day of the trip.

  • If you cancel 60-119 days before the retreat start date, 50% of your payment will be refunded.

  • If you cancel 30-59 days before the retreat start date, 25% of your payment will be refunded.

  • If you cancel 29 days or less before the retreat start date, you forfeit 100% of your payment.

 

If something comes up and you absolutely must cancel but don't want to forfeit your payment, please reach out to a WITTS team member to see if there is something we can do.  We may be willing to allow a full refund if a replacement is found in a timely fashion.  As always, we want to work with you and understand that life does happen, so please just email us if you encounter a problem. If there is a waitlist and we are able to fill your spot, you will get a full refund.

 

Depending on the policy and conditions, travel insurance will pay also for some or all cancellation fees.  That is another reason why we require all attendees to purchase travel insurance.  Most travel insurance must be purchased travel within 21 days or less of booking your reservation.

If the trip itself is cancelled or rescheduled by WITTS organizers, all monies paid will be fully refunded.
