The Ritz-Carlton - San Juan

Now available: Hotel, Flight and CLE Information (PDF)

Ritz-Carlton photo

The 35th Annual Midyear Legal Seminar of the Virginia State Bar will be held at the Ritz-Carlton, San Juan Hotel, Spa & Casino.

The Ritz-Carlton is set on eight acres of prime beachfront property in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico. This elegant resort provides its guests with an ideal pairing of impeccable Ritz-Carlton service with an atmosphere of pure elegance and tranquility. The décor reflects the Caribbean flavor and Hispanic culture of Puerto Rico and features an extensive art collection by renowned local artists. The property houses 416 beautifully appointed guest rooms; the most elegant casino in Puerto Rico; a luxurious 12,000-square-foot Caribbean spa with eleven treatment rooms, a beauty salon & fitness center; an outdoor swimming pool; five exceptional restaurants; and 30,000 square feet of conference and banquet facilities. The perfect serene setting is inspired by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

The island of Puerto Rico has it all: beautiful beaches, water sports, surfing, excellent golf, tennis, fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, horseback riding, hiking through El Yunque — the only rainforest in the U.S. National Forest System (EL YUNQUE), sailing and snorkeling, exquisite dining . . . and the list goes on. No visit is complete without spending time in Old San Juan. Few Caribbean cities are as steeped in Spanish tradition as Old San Juan. More than four hundred buildings have been beautifully restored and are carefully preserved examples of 16th- and 17th-century Spanish colonial architecture. Designated a U.S. National Historic Zone in 1950, the old city is partially enclosed by walls that date from 1633 and once completely surrounded it. It is full of life, shops, open-air cafes, private homes, tree-shaded squares, monuments, plaques, pigeons, and people. The city boasts two fortresses, El Morro and Fort San Cristobal — both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The seminar will be planned to include nine hours of continuing legal education credit (including two hours of ethics) and optional tours to historical attractions in the surrounding area.

Air and land services will be handled by Tour Plan International of Richmond, Virginia. As in past years, Stephany Pishko will be our designated travel representative. For further information regarding this seminar package, please contact Stephany at (804) 359-3217 (ext. 318); or stephanytrvl@msn.com.

Grand Hotel Baglioni, Florence Italy

The 34th Annual Midyear Legal Seminar of the Virginia State Bar will be held at the Grand Hotel Baglioni in Florence, Italy.

Now available: Hotel, Flight and CLE Information (PDF)

The prestigious Grand Hotel Baglioni will once again play host to the Virginia State Bar. This lovely hotel is located in the heart of historical Florence, just steps away from all the city’s precious treasures. Since 1903 the Grand Hotel Baglioni has graced the city with its Florentine charm, elegance and above all, hospitality. Traditions intact, the hotel provides all modern conveniences to its guests. Settling into this wonderful hotel will be easy, but you will surely want to venture out to explore the city, the beautiful Tuscan countryside, quaint little towns, and beyond to Rome, Venice and much more! Be sure to visit the hotel Web site at http://www.hotelbaglioni.it.

The seminar will be planned to include nine hours of CLE credit and optional tours to the historical attractions in the surrounding area.

Air and land services will be handled by Tour Plan International of Richmond, Virginia. As in past years, Stephany Pishko will be our designated travel representative. For further information regarding this seminar package, please contact Stephany at (804) 359-3217 (ext. 318); email: stephanytrvl@msn.com.
