In the web address "http://wwwinfo.cern.ch/~salicio" you can find the map for this trip.

Please, be in time for the appointment at the cafeteria.

It is convenient to emphasize some useful items: please do not forget to carry on (wear) raincoat, hat/cap and sun glasses, hiking boots or sport-footwear with thick and non-slipping sole, enough food and drinks for the own consumption.

I hope weather conditions will allow an enjoyable excursion!
