IMPS 2022 Excursion

Explore on your own or optional walking city tour 


Thursday, July 14, 2022

2:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. 

There is so much to choose from when visiting Italy that we decided to offer attendees a choice of exploring on your own, or attendees may participate in a two-hour city walking tour. This year’s excursion tour is included in all IMPS 2022 conference registration packages for your optional enjoyment.

If you decide to join the Society and fellow conference goers you will discover together Bologna in over two story-packed hours so you can experience the porticos, monuments and towers of what UNESCO has defined the best-preserved medieval centre in the world. 


  • Walking tour of Bologna with an expert local guide
  • See the most significant monuments, including the Two Towers, the inner Courtyard of Archiginnasio and San Petronio church
  • Learn about the city’s past and present 

Itinerary: Meet at the IMPS Registration area in the Belmeloro Building, ground floor. Tour the University of Bologna (from outside), Due Torri (from outside), Piazza Santo Stefano, Piazza della Mercanzia,  the ancient market area with shopping time, Piazza Maggiore, San Petronio church, Courtyard of Archiginnasio.

Tip: Please plan to meet at the IMPS Registration area located on the ground floor of the Belmeloro Building at 2:45 p.m. to be assigned to a tour group. Each tour group will allow up to 30 attendees per tour. If you would like to be paired with your friends please be sure to “line-up together” in order to be placed in the same walking tour group. We can’t guarantee everyone will be paired together, but we will do our best to accommodate especially if groups arrive together. Thank you. 

This is a walking tour for a total of 2.5 hours. To make the excursion most enjoyable, please bring good walking shoes and clothes for dressing in layers. (Pending weather consider also bringing an umbrella to be on the safe side.)

Guest Information: If you are a guest of a meeting attendee, guest registration is available at $120.00 and will include an invitation to the welcome and poster receptions, to the walking excursion tour, and a ticket for the closing banquet reception. A guest registration ticket does not include admission to meeting sessions.
