ROME BY PLANE
THE DIRECT AND QUICKEST WAY
Rome is one of the best connected international cities in the world. There are two main airports in Rome: Rome Fiumicino international airport and Rome Ciampino low cost airport. Both are located outside the city and well connected to the city centre. The main one, Leonardo da Vinci, better known as Fiumicino Airport, is one of the best equipped airports in Europe, located 26 km (15 miles) southwest of Rome. Ciampino Airport, second to Fiumicino, is located 20 km (12 miles) southeast from the city, where most charter flights land.
ROME BY TRAIN
Rome is in the heart of the European Rail Network and the key hub of the national network. Termini central railway station is the point of arrival and departure for almost all trains from Italy and abroad. The majority of public buses leaves from Termini to the different areas of the city and the two existing underground lines have their changing terminal there.
ROME BY CAR
If you decide to arrive by car, the best way to reach Rome is via the Milan-Naples A1/E35 motorway, taking “Roma Nord”, Roma Est” or “Roma Sud” exit, depending on which direction are you coming from and on traffic conditions. You can find Google maps placeholder marking the Conference venue here. Please be aware that in the surroundings of the conference venue there are limited parking possibilities. Moreover especially signed-posted Limited Traffic Zones are in place in the historical centre of the city and special permits, are required in order to drive through these areas. For all the above, getting to the Conference venue by car is strongly inadvisable.
