Conference venue.

Palazzo Steri



Palazzo Chiaramonte Steri is located in Piazza Marina, 61, at the core of the old city centre of Palermo, very close to hotels, restaurants, and to many of the main historical places of the city, such as the Cathedral and the Palazzo Reale. It can be easily reached from the Central train station through bus or taxi. Build between the XIV and XV as the seat of the aristocratic family Chiaramonte, it is now the administrative seat of the University of Palermo. 3 rooms are available for the conference (Sala Magna, Sala delle Capriate, S. Antonio Abate).
