After concert meet-up

for all those having received my last email with the meet-up info´s. There is an error in the name of the post-concert meet-up place - just cut off the last letter "e" it is :oops:
http://www.emanuelcafe.it
as I said, not a cheap place (see prices on the menu in their link) but at least they guaranteed to be open after the concert .
Ciao
Andrea

Dear Trisha,

when you arrive in Venice aiport (or Marco Polo or Treviso airport -it is worth for both ) take the bus from the airport to MESTRE, which is part of Venezia but on landside.
From Mestre take a train to Verona (direction Milano , Torino)
The Eurocity or Eurostar trains are more expensive but fast (1 hour) and a very good conncection . The local trains R (regionale) take a lot of time (also 2 hours and more ) and are not so good.
for trains see: www.trenitalia.it
It is important you have a valid train ticket, on the train it costs a lot of penalty.
Have a save trip, see you in Verona soon
Andrea

Hi all Verona forum members,

all the meet-ups are confirmed as on the email all the registered people have got.
For those not having registered in time, it is only possibile to join the pre-concert meet-up and the post-concert meet-up on monday 24th sept.

Sorry but it is too late to join for the other gatherings, I had to confirm the exact participants tody , so all who have registered please do come. I did guarantee for you all and I will be obliged to pay for the people I have ordered, as the quantities will be prepared on that amount.
So again, please, all registered people do come to the meet-ups you have applied for, thanks for comprehension.
Everybody got the list and knows for what having registered for .
See you soon in Verona, we ordered the sun, lets hope it works :D .

More suggestions: nice bars (Osterias) except the places were we meet are :
several bars in Via Sottoriva (behind Sant Anastasia church )
Mondo d´oro- vicolo tre Marchetti (behind shop ZARA in shopping street Via Mazzini)
Osteria Monte Baldo (Mount Baldy) - via Rosa (near Piazza Erbe) but you will find more around
there are many many bars....
A good treat to eat (easy for vegetarians) is BREK in Piazza Bra where we have the pre-concert meet-up (self service - only inside, if you seat outside it is service restaurant and more expensive)
and many nice and small typicals osteria´s /pizzeria´s.


Marco and I went today again to all places to make sure everything is going well.

We look forward to the coming days , now my preparations have officially finished and want to concentrade on the fun with all of you and specially of enjoying the CONCERT and Leonard and his group
:D

Regards
Andrea & Marco

you can join us on monday24th from 18. 30 h onwards the pre-concert meet-up and also the after meet-up in Caffe´Emanuel after the concert (Pizza Bra)
