How to get to the conference
Pisa has an international airport with daily flights to London and Munich, as well as to Rome, Milan, and other important Italian cities. The timetable of incoming and outgoing flights is available here
The airport is on the outskirts of the town, approximately 3 km from the center. The most convenient way to reach the center is probably by taxi. Taxis are located near the "Arrivals" exit of the air terminal. If there is no taxi out there, you may call the non-stop radio taxi service by dialing 050 541600. As an alternative you can take the city bus number 3 and get off at piazza della Stazione (Railway Station square), then take the city bus number 2 and get off at the bus stop in via F. Buonarroti. Here is a map
Pisa's railway station is on the line from Turin to Rome. There are many connections also with Florence. The train schedule is available here
. Recall that in Italy, before getting on the train, you must stamp your ticket by using those small yellow machines available within the station.
To reach the Department, you can take the city bus number 2 and get off at the bus stop in via F. Buonarroti. As an alternative, the Department is at walking distance from the railway station (approximately 20-30 minutes). Here is a map
Pisa is near the intersection of two highways: A12 north-south (Sestri Levante - Livorno) and A11 east-west (Pisa - Florence). Exit at "Pisa centro" and follow the indications towards the center of the town. Please note that Pisa is a small town with several pedestrian areas. Parking is a bit of a problem and most parking areas are with pay-meters.
Pisa can be easily traversed by feet. Red signs in the map indicate tourist sites.
