Accommodation in Prato


Vespa parked infront of wall, Prato

Accommodation can be arranged for students within a short walking distance to the Monash Prato Centre (5 to 10 minutes). We can offer single or twin share room options or students can also choose to arrange their own accommodation.

We pre-arrange bookings around program dates (check in the night prior to program commencement and check out either the morning the program finishes or the day after). If students require additional accommodation before or after the program dates, they will need to arrange this themselves.  Please do not book accommodation until  instructed to do so by the Arts Prato Coordinator.

Accommodation is usually around AUD$30-AUD$65 per night, depending on the venue and the exchange rate.

Students are required to pay for accommodation on line via E-Cart using Master or Visa card. You will be issued with a tax receipt for your records.
