CRE Europe
Cycling and Radiology
Education in Europe

SICILY, ITALY
April 17-23, 2021


Welcome

Our conference is in its fifth edition and we like to think that “CRE Europe” has come to stand for outstanding innovative continuing medical education combined with custom travel at the highest level. Every trip we push ourselves harder to take the conference to greater heights and for 2021, we have our sights set on the Italian island of Sicily.  

We will base ourselves in the deluxe 5-star Verdura Resort, a member of the luxury Rocco Forte Collection nestled on the southern coast of the island.  The resort occupies nearly two kilometers of private Mediterranean coastline. It is home to three Kyle Phillips golf courses, a 60-metre infinity pool, six clay tennis courts, a world-class spa, four restaurants and five bars.  The rooms are large and each one has an uninterrupted view of the azure water from a private terrace.

The surrounding towns and villages are simple and it often feels as if you have stepped back in time.  But never is the feeling of time travel stronger than when we hike and bike into the Ancient Greek ruins scattered through the trip – Eraclea Minoa, Selinute and the staggering Valley of the Temples - some of the world’s greatest archaeological sites. 

Naturally, we will eat and drink well.  The fish is caught daily in the nearby town of Sciacca by the local small boat fleet.  Fresh fruit grows all year round and the trees will be full of blood oranges and Siracuse lemons when we are there.  The menus will offer arancini, pasta all Norma or con le sarde, caponata, caciocavallo and naturally cannoli and cassata for dessert.  Olive groves and vineyards are everywhere and we will get a close-up look at the production of both oil and wine when we enjoy private tastings and dinners at the wineries of Planeta Ulmo and Cantine de Gregorio.

But of course, we take as much pride in delivering an outstanding, innovative education program – with expert speakers, novel teaching methods, essential topics and engaged participants. 

Opportunities like this don’t come along too often.  Space is limited.  Don’t delay.  On our last program to the Loire Valley, we had a huge waitlist of disappointed people for whom we had no space. We truly hope that you can join us in 2021 for what promises to be a very special journey to the golden island of Sicily. Never have we done a program at this level of complete luxury.
