The most convenient airports are ROME or FLORENCE. IMPORTANT: Transport between the airport and the hotels will NOT be provided by WABBA Italy, so each team or athlete must organize the transfer autonomously. The Perugia train station is at 2 minutes walking distance from the venue, so arriving in Perugia by train is a good choice.

Tanning service and respect for the infrastructures:

We ask all contestants to pay particular attention for the venue, in particular for the backstage and the warm-up area. It is therefore FORBIDDEN to apply the colour in the backstage, in order to avoid the risk of damage. For this reason we ask everybody to apply the colour somewhere else or to take advantage of the professional tanning service available on site.
