Suggestions for your return journey
You are not advised trying to get a flight earlier than 10:00 am on Monday, the last day of the Crescendo Summer Institute. The night trains are slow and you will be happier if you can enjoy the closing festivities and not have to leave at 4:00 am. Please check our Crescendo Bus timetable and the train schedules to make sure you can make it to the Airport in time.
