About The Locations:

For those arriving from the US:

- Flight to Rome to Florence: Fiumicino - train to Rome Termini Station (direct, 32 min) from Termini Station to Florence Santa Maria Novella, fast train (1h 40 min) 

About Florence:

Florence is one of the most fascinating cities in Italy, the heart of Tuscany. It is connected by fast train with Milan (2h), Rome (1h 40m) and Venice (2h 30min). The city's surroundings are beautiful among the Chianti hills. In October, it is harvest time for the famous wines and foliage. Less than two hours from Florence are many beautiful small towns that can be reached by car or train with ease: Lucca - Pisa - Pistoia -Siena - Arezzo - San Gimignano - Montalcino - Perugia - Bologna - Ferrara - the Sea of Versilia (Forte dei Marmi) is just over 1 hour away - further south: the Maremma (surroundings of Grosseto), and Todi, Orvieto.

About Colla di Netro:

Colla di Netro is a charming little hamlet nestled in the hills and is located about 20 minutes from the city of Biella, 2 hours from Milan, and 1 1/2 hours from Turin - 1 hour 30 min for Maggiore Lake (Stresa) just over 2 hours from Genoa - 2 hours to Como Lake and to Lugano (Switzerland).

To get there from the USA: flight to Milan Malpensa or Turin and then train to Biella and bus (car transfer can be arranged: from Malpensa to Netro by car about 1 hour 40 minutes )

The course is held at the Okami Kumo headquarters in the small village of Colla di Netro. It is possible to stay overnight in a very special location, an old villa with single, double, or shared rooms. There are also B&Bs nearby. If you like to fully enjoy the surroundings, it is advisable to rent a car, but it is not necessary. We can arrange a transfer from the airport to Netro, and from there you can move by bus and train from Biella (but it will take more time).

Accommodations: 

Accommodation in Florence: There are many accommodation options, hotels of all categories, and B&Bs in the center of Florence. Getting around by car is very difficult, there are few parking lots and the entire city center is ZTL (entrance fee only). We advise you not to come by car, or leave it outside the city.

Testimonial:

"I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to spend ten days in Italy where I attended the July 2023 Shiatsu Retreat taught by Master Kumiko and sponsored by the Japanese Cultural Association Okami Kumo. The retreat consisted of three separate workshops, one in Milan and two in the beautiful Italian town of Colla di Netro, west of Milan. The workshops were extremely rewarding, both in content and practice. The delicious food, the outside-of-class activities and the opportunity to meet and train with practitioners of varying levels all added to the experience. Also, the conference hosts, Manuela and Serena of Okami Kumo, provided us all with so much support that we were able to relax and enjoy our time being immersed in Italy and its culture. It was truly an exceptional experience — one that I believe would be difficult to replicate at any price. I’m already looking forward to next year." - Keith Strand
