Silicon Valley Tour Itinerary

Silicon Valley is the current name, coined in 1971 by journalist Don C. Hoefler, to indicate the southern part of the San Francisco Bay area. It was called "Silicon" because of the strong concentration of companies related to software, semiconductors and computers, based on silicon and "Valley" in the name of Santa Clara Valley. It substantially coincides with Santa Clara County. We want to point out to the client that the visit covers a linear road (highway) from San Francisco of approximately 70/80 km with stops along the way, in the most important companies. The first civil electronics company founded in Silicon Valley is Hewlett-Packard, founded in 1939 by two graduates of Stanford University; However, the boom occurred in the fifties, thanks to a large presence of universities and research laboratories concentrated in 60 square miles: Stanford University, the University of California at Berkeley, the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the Center for NASA Ames Research and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory of LLNL. The campuses are often very modern and anonymous buildings covered in glass and surrounded by parking lots for employees and visitors. Technology companies are not open to the public and access is not allowed due to the sensitivity of innovations and ongoing research. Our visit will be limited to campus entrances with views of the buildings and their famous corporate logos. Google and Apple have a retail store where you can buy souvenirs and electronic products.
