Neutrino Oscillation Workshop
The NOW 2016 Workshop Venue (Basiliani Resort & SPA) is located on a hillside, at walking distance from the old town of Otranto and its local beaches. The Workshop participants and/or the accompanying persons may spend their free time either inside the Resort (which offers a large pool and a solarium free of charge, plus charged SPA services) or outside it, towards the old town and the seaside which are favorite destinations for tourists.
Outside the resort, some points of interests are: the Otranto Castle (often featuring art exhibitions), the Old Town (with many places to stop for a visit, for a drink, or for shopping), the Cathedral (with its famous floor mosaic), the sand beach "Lido Miramare" and the rocky seaside.
We plan to reserve a dozen beach umbrellas (and twice as many beach beds/seats) at Lido Miramare for NOW 2016 participants and accompanying persons. Free access to the sand beach and its facilities will be possible by going down the stairs on the right of "Ristorante Miramare" and exhibiting the NOW 2016 badge at the personnel of Lido Miramare. More info will be given on site.
On the opposite side along the coast, just after the stone arcs in front of the "Guardia Costiera" (Coastal Guard) building, there is a rocky seaside with deep waters, which are suitable only for experienced swimmers. The closest part of this seaside features big artificial rocks, followed by natural rocks towards East (with access along the coastal road).
A map with directions to these points of interest (all within about 20' walking distance) is given below.
