Social tour

A social program has been developed that will afford delegates and their accompanying persons the opportunity to sample some of the best that Poitiers and its surroundings has to offer. Participation to the daily excursion tours is not included in the registration fees. The price will be around 75€ including transportation, lunch and visits for an adult and 40€ for a child. Two different tours are proposed, each one with a 50 participants limit. Inscription is mandatory before the 20th of June and by sending an email at the following address, Prof. Antoine Eon at antoine.eon@univ-poitiers.fr with the chosen tour, the number of adults and childrens.

The social tour is planned for the Friday 22 July.

 

A minimum of 20 participants per tour is needed to maintain it.

The price (transportation) will vary according to the number of participants. Indeed, when the final number of participants will be fixed, we will then be able to have the final price for each tour. At this moment, we will open the online payment on the registration website.
