18th Congress of the International Pediatric Nephrology Association - IPNA

The congress itself will be held on Venice Lido, a peaceful barrier island that separates the Venetian Lagoon from the Adriatic Sea, which is only a few minutes from Venice’s historic center by vaporetto. The Lido is an ideal location for those interested in both culture and relaxation being so close to the mainland, while offering 12 km of beautiful beaches.
