Booking form

Travel to Catania

The airport of Catania (one airport under two names: "Vincenzo Bellini", new name, or "Fontanarossa", former name) is well connected by several daily flights from the airports of Roma or Milano and other many Italian airports. There are also direct flights from/to some major European cities (London, Paris, Bruxelles, Munich, Madrid, Barcelona, Zurich, etc.).

Transport from the airport to the conference venue

Arriving at the airport of Catania you can take the city bus Alibus-457 (there is one every 20 minutes) to reach the conference venue (Corso Italia stop) or the other suggested hotels (piazza Trento and piazza Verga stop), or you can take a taxi. Conference participants can also land to Palermo airport or to Trapani airport. If you land to Trapani airport, first you have to go to Palermo by bus (link1, link2) and then to reach Catania you can take a bus. After arriving at the railway station you need to take the tube or the bus to reach conference venue or the hotels (Palazzo delle Scienze).
