How to get there

You might want to consult RouteRank in order to get useful information on your trip.

Arriving by plane - from Pisa International Airport "Galileo Galilei"

Arriving by train - from "Pisa Centrale" Railway Station

Important notice: Pisa has two minor train stations: "Pisa Aeroporto", located besides the Airport, and "Pisa San Rossore", located not far from the hotel. Only local trains stops there, however. When in doubt, refer to "Pisa Centrale" to disambiguate.

Arriving by car - from A11 Motorway (coming from Rome, Milan or Florence)

Important notice: most of the city center of Pisa (therein including Via Santa Maria, where the conference venue is), is a restricted car access zone. You have to pay for a permit (only in Italian, sorry) in order to be allowed in with your car, and gateways equipped with cameras are at each entrance. If you are staying at a hotel and/or renting a car in Pisa, you can probably arrange for the staff to obtain a permit for you.

If you get lost, do not panic: Pisa is a small town and everybody knows where the Grand Hotel Duomo is, just ask passersby.
