Ready to Join?

August is the month of the holidays! We are now planning our Summer break, someone to return back to the family, someone going to the favorite vacation at the sea, the mountains or to a cultural trip! Before to leave, catch the opportunity to tell your plans, your expectations and your dreams to your old and new friends, enjoy a drink and share an evening socializing with the InterNations members during the Summer in the City!

“Located inside the Murate complex - the former prison of Florence - returned to the city after a restoration whose guidelines were drawn by Renzo Piano, the Literary Cafe Le Murate is inserted in a context of multiple cultural initiatives, proposing itself as a reference point of international scope. A place to compare opinions, to meet different cultures where new models of coexistence are recreated under the banner of freedom and originality of the proposals: literary, artistic, gastronomic.” (translated from the webpage

The access to the event (see costs in the fee section) includes a buffet consisting of:
- One drink at the bar, to be chosen within an available menu
- Buffet with foods in a typical “aperitivo style”
- Each additional drink will be served at the bar for max 5 euro.

Our venues request accurate numbers so they can be sure they have adequate space to accommodate us. It makes planning possible to have an accurate guestlist, so a special bonus option is available for this event: for everyone that signs up AND confirm the presence through a personal message to the organizer, a 2 EUR off discount for entrance price will be available at the welcome desk, by showing their message in the smartphone! The cut-off time is 10:00am one day before the event (31 July). We wait for you, to offer your discount as a thank you for helping for a more accurate guest list numbers to our venue! Two days before the event, all the signed-up will receive a reminder message, asking to confirm the participation, or to cancel the attendance if you no longer will be attending our event. Hope you understand the spirit of this initiative, mainly finalized to properly valorize the credibility of InterNations within the best venues of the city!
